Darren Kennedy: Disco inferno
Blaze a trail on the dancefloor in sequins and sparkles.
Be a glitter bug
As the 1970s continue to dominate much of fashion, the disco trend lit up the catwalks for autumn/winter 2017. Sparkles, glitter and sequins shimmered across collections that featured disco boots, head-to-toe sequin dresses and tonnes of ruffles. Designers including Saint Laurent, Gucci, Versace and Pucci want to make us hit the dancefloor hard this year and, with Christmas fast approaching, it's an ideal trend to tap into. Flashes of electric blue and sequins shimmered at Versace and Paco Rabanne; pops of futuristic metallics came from JW Anderson, Chanel and Loewe, while Gucci brought us top-to-toe glitter. If there's one piece that epitomises the trend, it's Saint Laurent's disco boots - as worn by Rihanna - which are the footwear of the season. In terms of updating your wardrobe, embellishment is the way to go. Bedazzled denim skirts and sequined evening bags are an easy way to rock this trend.
When it comes to the disco trend, dress metallic flashes with black to give them extra pop, and remember: you can never ever have too much glitter. Go forth and shine!
