Disco Days are Here Again

Silky smooth and sizzling hot—that’s how it went down at Studio 54! From the mysterious glow of Grace Jones to the come hither dresses of Jerry Hall, if it wasn’t completely over-the-top, it didn’t make the cut at Studio 54. Where else could birthday girl Bianca Jagger saunter in on a white stallion?

Though we weren’t able to shake it down on the dance floor with Andy Warhol, we have become mildly obsessed with the fashion precipitated by all those in attendance. Notably, we’re crushing glam squad regulars Lauren Hutton, Liza Minelli, and a very young Brooke Shields. Their outfits, always to the nines, were the perfect complement to the heart thumping grooves on the dance floor. Their only rules—be fabulous and have fun.  With this spring bringing us face to face with a full-on 70s fashion revival, we are jumping at the chance to channel our inner disco diva. Feeling the fabulous groove? Here’s what you need to turn up the volume of Studio 54 fashion. 
The party doesn’t get going until after dark, so you’re sure to shimmer bright when outfitting metallics. Big on the 70s dance floors, and continuing to shine down spring 2011 runways, gold lamé and silver chiffon catch light like rays on the sun. And nothing reads more disco diva than a sexy halter dress in a glitzy metallic. This one by Tony Bowls is sure to get the party started right. 

If you aren’t feeling the full throttle of head to toe metallics, then reach for a clutch. This gold purse swiftly accessorizes a silk jumpsuit like a cat ready to pounce—fierce! For a kaleidoscopic boost, step into these platform sandals by Carnival. Now whose hot to trot?

Okay, let’s take it up a notch, and get some hot pants on—a truly modern and cheeky way to do evening attire. Choose a high-waist version for a slimmer silhouette, and tuck in a billowy blouse for evening flair. Heels are an absolute must! We’d recommend platforms to complete the 70s look. Not feeling in tip-top shape? Then slip into a pair of tights or patterned stockings for extra coverage. Since it’s all about the celebration—make sure you’re ready to hustle.
