Eye-catching, fluorescent, and bright, disco fashion had a style all its own. Wearing cheery colors can make you stand out from the crowd, but it can be a little bit risky. The mind behind the Easy Tiger blog, Tigerlilly Winfield is a London-based style blogger known for her creative colorful outfits ranging from hot-pants to multi-colored kimonos featuring glitters, feathers, and sequins perfect for a disco party. So, let’s have a fashion inspiration on how to dress for a disco party and create a dance-ready look.
- Opt for stretchy and shiny fabrics that can reflect light.
Your disco outfit must be made from stretchy, shiny material that can reflect the bright lights of a disco club. So, select the right fabrics like spandex, lycra, velour, or synthetic polyester as well as patent leather, glittery fabrics, and sequin ensembles. Fabrics with stretch are excellent for disco moves, and you can find spandex-infused materials with excellent weight for twirling and turning with the best of them. Like Tiger, you may go for techno-inspired outfits made from shiny and glossy fabric in shades of silver and gold to channel your daring yet modern vibe.
- Go for a dance-friendly silhouette on your outfits.
When going for mini-dresses look for a design that flares out slightly starting at the waist, or even a non-fitting silhouette to avoid restricting your movements. Also, you may go for a catsuit or a one-piece bodysuit often made of spandex like Tiger’s wearing for a less revealing option. Typically fitted at the thigh and flared out at the knees, catsuits are dance-friendly like bell bottom pants. However, avoid bell bottom jeans, since these would have been too casual to wear to a disco. Instead, go for bell bottoms made of shiny, clingy material, as well as tops adorned in sequins, metallic leopard print, or other flashy prints. Also, cross-over tops are great selections to wear with leggings as they have a body-hugging cut that can highlight your moves on the dance floor.
- Wear bright, cheery colors to add some life to your disco looks.
Like Tiger, go for cheery shades like bright pink, aqua blue, bright red, orange, lime green, and purple to keep your looks disco-appropriate. Fluorescent and neon shades are also a great option to look vibrant on your disco party. If you don’t want to blind someone, you may stick to subdues hues of orange, blue, and pink, but avoid looking too gentle or romantic on your outfit.
- Go for festive embellishments, statement patterns, and flashy prints.
Skip those feminine floral prints, classic stripes, and retro polka dots. Instead, go for geometric designs that can be flattering solid if you pump it up with the right accessories. Optic illusion checks, as well as patterns resembling a disco ball, music note, or abstract print can be great to revamp your disco look. Feel free to explore different prints especially novelty, quirky, and flashy prints that can be the perfect choice to make your disco party more fun.
- Resort to funky platforms and wedges.
If you normally wear flats or kitten heels when you go out dancing, now is the time to step up your game. Go dancing in your highest heels or, simply resort to platform boots or shoes for a chic look. Slip on sneakers, wedge sneakers, and canvas sneakers are also great for a comfortable and relaxed dancing on the floor. So, be bold and carefree on your upcoming disco party and dance with flair.
