La Glamour

Breakout runway trends to wear now

For over a decade, minimalism has dominated on the catwalks. But now, the desire for bolder and brighter clothing for the visually-led Instagram generation is a proof that maximalism is alive and well. This season brought an '8os revival with the resurgence of high-octane glamour, glitter, sequins, and feathers. Turns out disco isn't dead.

In layered sheer fabrics and tinged with metallic threads, the silhouette of the season is a fit-and-flare look that accentuates the waist. With special details like high-low hemlines, smocked waistbands and keyhole backs, these dresses are party-ready. The ideal finish for this look comes with either a red or maroon lipstick for a ravishing look or alternatively a no-make up look for a sophisticated look. In the first case, you will shine and in the second case your dress will talk louder than you.

Don’t forget to accessorise with gold and metallics. From dangling chandelier earrings to chunky metal cuffs to glittering clutches and barely there sandals, there are plenty of ways to shine this season.
