Disco Goes For A Daytime Spin: The Ultimate Summer Trend

The glam factor just turned up a notch with the daytime disco trend and we’re really questioning whether glitter is for the after-dark hours only.

Shimmer, sparkle and style with a side of sun – we’re taking the party to brunch with some extravagance. Saturday night fever is now everyday phenomenon and OTT dressing is the new normal on a bright Monday morning.

The resurgence of style in the 70s has brought about some of the most elaborate, head-turning pieces on the runway.

The daytime disco phenomenon is accessible and multifaceted, too. Disco-inspired pieces can be styled with almost anything and you have yourself a statement outfit.


Olivia Palermo

An easy, yet bold way to glam any ensemble. Sequins have become a wardrobe staple, making it a go-to piece for whenever you feel like adding some glitz to your look. Pair a sequined piece with ripped denims, miniskirts or tailored trousers and you’re ready for some daylight dancing.


Jennifer Lawrence

Diamond encrusted handbags, rhinestone hairbands or embellished tees, the shimmer is everywhere. For a subtler look, wear a statement piece with an everyday jeans-and-shirt or a monochrome pantsuit. If you want to fully dive into the trend, layer your outfit with multiple embellished pieces. Wear a jeweled t-shirt with crystal heels and a rhinestone handbag or an embellished blazer with diamond accessories and you have a look full of glitz and glam.

Another element that’s trending in the embellishment phenomenon is crystalized fringes. This dainty and flamboyant touch, adds the dazzle-factor to any basic wardrobe staple such as denim jackets, jeans, t-shirts and skirts.

Gigi Hadid

Standing out is what we’re going for with this trend. Eye-catching and party-ready, metallic pieces are bringing the celebratory spirit back. From metallic purses, shiny pants and even sparkly makeup, looks inspired by a shiny disco ball are in the spotlight for all hours in the day too. Balance the look out by pairing solid colored basics with a shiny handbag or metallic pumps. For the more daring, sport a metallic party dress, skirt or pants with a glittered top to embrace your inner disco diva.

Sparkly Jewelry

Dramatic and glamorous, statement jewellery pieces elevate every look without much fuss. Of course, the ever-classic hoops are a go-to when you think of the 70s. Layering necklaces is also a simple, yet eclectic part of a look. Pairing a chunky necklace with some longer, simpler ones along with a choker to create a stack adds a detailed yet effortless touch to any outfit. Add some cuffs, chain bracelets and a colorful ring for a fun touch.
