There aren’t many things in this world more fun than a roller skating party, except of course, a roller skating party with a theme – because who doesn’t love an excuse to play dress up? If you’re considering hosting a roller skating party in Lanham, check out these ideas to help you level up your party with a retro theme that you and your guests will love.
1950s Sock Hop Party
Channel the wholesome fun of 1950s drive-ins and sock hops by encouraging your guests to show up in their best mid-century styles. Here are some 50s fashion ideas to get you started:
- Poodle skirts
- Cat-eye glasses and scarves
- Powder blue jackets
- Your favorite 50s celebrity – Elvis, Lucille Ball, Marilyn Monroe
- Or channel your favorite Grease characters and dress like a Pink Lady or T-Bird!
1970s Roller Disco Party
Roller skating has had many heydays, but the 1970s era of roller disco parties was a golden age for fashion and roller skating alike. Encourage your guests to arrive in these looks:
- Gold lame, slinky jersey, boldly patterned silk, or any stretchy, shiny material
- Bell bottoms, especially with suede vests, jackets, or boots for a hippie look
- Jump suits, wrap dresses, or hot pants with tall socks or boots
- Don’t forget to add some bright blue eye shadow and big earrings!
1990s Skating Party
The great thing about a 1990s themed party is that you can take it in so many directions. From grunge and riot grrls to classic hip hop to club looks to the X Games, there’s something for everyone – and every closet!
- Channel your inner Spice Girl or Backstreet Boy.
- Rock flannel, a band shirt, and baggy jeans like grunge musicians of the day.
- Break out those mini butterfly hair clips or wear your hair in space buns.
- Halter tops, spaghetti straps, snakeskin prints, metallic and holo fabrics, athletic brands like Adidas
- Emulate one of your favorite iconic 1990s movies like Clueless, The Craft, or Empire Records.
- Dress like your favorite character from Friends, Saved By the Bell, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, or Seinfeld.
