At Trashy Diva, we’re always looking to the icons of the past for inspiration. In 2015, we debuted the Bianca Dress, one of the most 1970s-inspired pieces we’ve ever created. The bodice is a classic shape, much like our beloved Doris dress, that features a crossover bust to highlight that killer cleavage, and matching deep-v back. The broad, top-stitched waistband creates definition and draws the eye to the smallest part of your waist. The sleeve features delicate gathering at the shoulder that descends in a style akin to a bishop sleeve, tapering at the wrist to a three-button cuff. The length hits most at or above the knee, giving it a sassy feel. And don’t forget the best part – pockets!
This style is a combination of some of the greatest aspects of disco fashion and we love it styled with powerful heels or tall boots and paired with a wide obi belt for further waist definition. While it might be out of your initial comfort zone, I highly recommend giving it a try. You might be shocked by how sexy it makes you feel!

The nod in name goes, of course, to that divine disco diva, Bianca Jagger. While a brief stint as the first wife of Rolling Stones’ frontman Mick Jagger might be where most know her from, this diva has had a huge impact in the world of fashion and beyond. Her daring wardrobe choices landed her in the pages of high-fashion magazines the world over, but for the last few decades, her work has been in the field of human rights. She has fought to bring about political change in her home country of Nicaragua as well as fighting for the rights of women, indigenous peoples and the environment throughout Latin America.
As we continue to create exciting retro-inspired pieces for the modern woman, we are so honored to draw influence from those divas of the past who showed us that fashion is just one of the many ways to live a bold, impactful life.
