Add 'Mamma Mia!' '70s Fashion Into Your Summer Wardrobe & Become A Real Dancing Queen


It was 10 years ago that the world was introduced to Donna Sheridan's brilliantly weird group of friends and family. Now, the second part of Mamma Mia! is upon us and with it comes a whole load of 1970s fashion. Full of ruffles, floaty clothes, and lots and lots of prints, adding a touch of Mamma Mia! '70s fashion into your wardrobe this summer has never been easier.

The first film — which was released in 2008 — saw Meryl Streep's Donna in her trademark overalls while the rest of the cast swanned around in floaty dresses and out there patterns. The latest story, entitled Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, has a lot of the same but also mixes in some real classics straight from 1979. There are gold platform boots, skintight catsuits, and enough denim bellbottoms to last you a lifetime. Oh, and the angel that is Cher appears in a heavenly white suit.

So if you're in the mood for some Grecian sartorial fun, look no further than the high street which is serving up some Mamma Mia!-inspired goodness in the form of prairie dresses, printed blouses, and, yes, even a bellbottom or two. Here's just a few options to try out:

1A Floaty Maxi Skirt

Patterned Skirt


Alright, this is a calf-length skirt but that's basically maxi so the 'Mamma Mia!' cast would approve. This mellow yellow design wouldn't look out of place lounging around in a Greek villa.

2A Prairie Dress

Billowy Prairie Maxi Dress

& Other Stories

A prairie dress is one of those floaty designs that seems to have been made specifically for a holiday climate. Yellow is apparently the colour of the summer, making this & Other Stories dress one that combines the now with the past perfectly.

3A Sun Hat

Woven Straw Sun Hat

& Other Stories

You obviously can't sing and dance around in the sun without keeping your head protected. Big enough to be described as chic, this straw hat can be paired with absolutely anything.

4A Pair Of Espadrilles

Hannah Canvas Striped Espadrilles


Donna would definitely approve of these handy pair of flats. You can clean in them, cook in them, run along the beach in them. The ultimate versatile shoe.

5A Tanya Look

Flowy Kaftan


Tanya, played by the inimitable Christine Baranski, loves a dramatic look. And this floral kaftan is certainly serving up some glamorous and goddess-like vibes.

6Seventies Platform Boots

Come Dancing Platform Boot

Nasty Gal

In the new film, a young Donna — played by Lily James — is seen wearing a pair of mega platform boots. Hers are golden and thigh-high but you'll probably have to wait until winter to find an exact match. However, this metallic pair are a great summer alternative.

7Abba Trousers

Pink Chiffon Tiered Frill Wide Leg Trousers


You can't get more '70s than these. Ruffles, frills, whatever you want to call them. These trousers are 'Mamma Mia!' personified.

8Flared Denim

Light Blue Flare Jeans

River Island

Double denim is a mainstay in the 2018 film. Grab a pair of flares and you're set for those loved-up summer evenings.

9A Starry Jacket

Star Embellished Denim Jacket

Simply Be

Young Donna loves a star-embroidered denim jacket. Simply Be has a black design that available up to a size 32.

10Donna's Overalls

Monki Dogtooth Dungarees


Donna chucks on a pair of overalls to get things done. You can do the same with this grey Monki pair.

11A Stripy Jumpsuit

Rainbow Stripe Flare Leg Jumpsuit


If you go to the cinema, you'll know exactly why this catsuit features in this list. Note: this is probably only for the bravest among you.

The only problem with all of this? Money, money, money.
