There was a definite sense that the designers were ready to embrace the fun side of fashion on the spring / summer shows. Sequins, sequins and a host of other shiny fabrics – usually a mainstay of fall / winter collections – were a huge trend during the Big Four Fashion Weeks.

In London, Riccardo Tisci sent models to Burberry in chainmail-style draped dresses, while in Halpern, a metallic mint green cocktail dress with a fabulous fan-shaped front was one of the most popular pieces. more remarkable.

Balmain and Loewe brought the disco vibe to Paris, with sparkling dresses and coordinating two-piece sets in pastel pink and baby blue tones. At Paco Rabanne, the models looked like mirror balls, in sassy little dresses constructed from thousands of shiny sequins. There were even sequin-encrusted suits at Louis Vuitton and Chanel.

It’s no surprise that celebrities have embraced the glamorous, glittery trend on the red carpet, with actors Cynthia Erivo and Jurnee Smollett wearing a glittery Louis Vuitton on the red carpet earlier this year during awards season.

And now it’s your turn. With the easing of lockdown restrictions, travel opportunities, and the opening of nightlife, party clothing is back on the agenda, and Main Street is teeming with glittery clothing.

How to style the summer glitter trend? First of all, the color scheme is key. You want to go for cool-toned silver, champagne, and pastel shades, rather than yellow gold or anything that looks too Christmas right now.

Second, this trend is for laid-back glamor, which means easy-to-wear light dresses, baggy ensembles, and wide pants – nothing too clingy or restrictive.

It’s all about having fun. These clothes are meant for the dance floor, of course, so go ahead and sparkle in style.
