It was one of those nights out where I was caught standing in line at the bathroom of a loud club. As I patiently waited for my turn, I couldn’t help but notice what the other girls were wearing. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean to judge, but I’m pretty sure I recognize those same bandage skirts and billowy chiffon tops that most seem to be sporting. Where have I seen them? In the streets of the central business district, desperately trying to mask itself as corporate attire underneath a blazer. (Yikes.)
Parties used to be the perfect excuse for dressing up and showing off a sparkly new outfit. Where did the glam factor go? Has it left the building? I think not. Here we show you how to bring the glitz back into your gimmick with a little help from the queens of disco.

Channel your inner Farrah Fawcett and shimmy your way over to the bar dressed in a sequined one-piece that shows off those collarbones, sharp shoulder blades, and long skinny stems. Jumpsuits are so hot right now.

Still not over body-cons? Fine, we’ll give you a free pass just as long As long as you wear it with the same grace and poise Grace Jones does.

If you really want to stand out in a sea of basic…leave the dress at home and wear a tailored playsuit that shows off your va va voom. Bianca Jagger nods in approval.
