The Blues Brothers is a 1980 action comedy movie starring John Belushi as Jake Blues and Dan Aykroyd as Elwood Blues. The Blues Brothers began as part of a musical sketch on Saturday Night Live in 1978.

The orphanage where the brothers grew up is on the verge of being closed due to unpaid taxes and they have the idea to get their old band back together to perform and raise the funds needed in order to keep the orphanage open. The brothers have good intentions but with their past involvement with crime and the new enemies they have made, namely the police, they run into obstacles and are running out of time to save the orphanage. 

The Blues Brothers have undeniable musical talent even if their past is a little shady. 

Dress like the Blues Brothers using classic pieces that you may already have in your closet.

Throughout the movie costume designer, Henry Larrecq, has the duo impeccably dressed in a classic style. You can recreate the look of the Blues Brothers with a classic black suit, white dress shirt, skinny black tie and black dress loafers. Then add the most important items, the signature black sunglasses and black fedora hats. A few pieces of gold or silver jewelry and you’re set. Your Blues Brothers costumes will be a hit at your cosplay event or costume party. Break out a harmonica and sing the blues!
