DISCO street trend
Disco began as a dance genre in the late 1960s-early 1970s, primarily in African-American and Hispanic communities. Many say it was the precursor to the types of dance clubs we have today. A style of dress evolved from this dance movement, (also made popular by such films as Flashdance, Saturday Night Fever and clubs such as Studio 54), which probably originated for ease of movement, such as spandex and polyesters. This was a flashy period, one wrought with sequins, beading, and sparkling baubles. Hair was big, asymmetric cuts were the status quo, and jumpsuits were not to be contended with. Some images below of the transition from disco street style to disco runway style.
