The fast approaching Oscar’s means many things for the fashion world. One of them being a magnificent opportunity for a themed Oscar Viewing Party for you and all of your friends. What better theme than the movie that represents the music you grew up with; Bohemian Rhapsody. (CLICK HERE FOR INSPIRATION).
Enjoy a night of devastating wins and losses, and relish in some of the most iconic fashion of all time by dressing like the man who made it infamous. Your guests are going to love getting into the spirit of the occasion, as well as the opportunity to dress outrageously, even if it is for one night.
As Rami Malek demonstrates within Bohemian Rhapsody, Freddie Mercury was the king of tight, leather pants. Squeeze into this infamous look with one of our many pairs of faux leather pants. Find comfort in the loose fitting David Lerner Cuffed Tapered Jogger Pants ($176.00); Look sleek in the classic Lysse Faux Leather Leggings ($98.00); Or mimic the king of rock in the bright, white Tiger Mist Lennon Zip Detail Faux Leather Pants ($39.95).
Freddie Mercury was a large fan of grand, sweeping, kimonos, tiny neckerchiefs, and delicate scarves. That makes it the perfect accessory for you and your party guests. Pop with color while wearing the delicate, paisley design on the Free People Little Wing Kimono ($68.00). Billow into the party with Free People Star Dazed Scarf Wrap ($68.00). Though it may seem a little young for women of 50, it is perfect to wear atop a sweater. Or add wild glamour to your look with the Sole Society Leopard Print Scarf ($29.95).
Be the life of your own party by layering your look with an eye catching jacket, just like Freddie would. Since he was all about a statement piece, you’re going to need a brightly checked, blazer like the TopShop Brushed Check Blazer ($64.98). If a blazer isn’t for you, go even bigger with Vince’s brilliant take on a moto jacket with the Shearling Moto Jacket ($1,197.00). Or pay homage to the 70’s while adding a little bit of a modern twist with the Avec Les Filles Faux Shearling Biker Jacket ($169.00).
Simple Tank Tops
When people think of Freddie Mercury, they think of him dressed in his iconic white tank and jeans, or white Superman tank with white leather pants. That means you can show up to your party dressed simply, and still take part in all the fun. Try the Madewell Whisper Cotton V Neck Tank ($18.50), TopShop Textured Scoop Neck Bodysuit ($25.00), Free People Long Beach Tank ($20.00).
No one knew better than Freddie that no outfit was complete without a little glitter. Jazz up whatever your wearing with chunky, sparkling, costume jewelry. Feel glamorous in the vintage sophistication of the Baublebar Moonlight Drop Earrings ($36.00). Draw attention with the glitzy, yet sophisticated Cristabelle Graduated Crystal Choker ($98.00). Or add a simple touch that will make a big splash with the Kendra Scott Tiana Filigree Cuff ($80.00).
