Glitter, shimmer, sequins and sparkles – one of this season’s hottest trends is all about an 80s disco revival.

The saying ‘every cloud has a silver lining’ could not be more apt for the sea of glitz that has infiltrated from runway couture to high fashion street wear amid a climate of grey and gloomy weather.

Designer’s such Gucci, Fendi and Tom Ford showcased Autumn/Winter 2018 looks characterised by iridescent accents and full on sparkly statement pieces,  proving you don’t have to wait for the sun to shine to put a spring back into your step.

Take  some pointers from these celebs on how to transform mood-lifting disco ball party gear into a striking winter wardrobe essential. 


Kourtney kept warm at the CFDA Awards in a plunging velvet pants suit embelished with sparkles. Paired with slicked back hair and minimal makeup,  the glitzy elements ensures the simplistic look is elevated up a notch.

From the runway to the streets!  Rihanna’s ‘dressed down’ look is anything but ordinary. The beauty  paired these statment YSL glitter boots with an oversized leather jacket as she bundled up for a night on the town.

At last year’s Fashion Awards, Adwoah looked every bit the winner as she picked up the Model of the Year accolade in a two-toned mico-mini adorned with Swarovski crystals.  The Halpern creation was accompanied by a mettalic wrap-around head-piece – a simple and stylish way to rock the trend while being winter weather appropriate.
