The 80s are back! Click through to see some of the trends you can still pull off today.

80s fashion for women was colorful, bold, and in some cases, outrageous. Anyone who grew up in or was around in the 1980s surely remembers some of the fashion trends that emerged that decade. Some were positive, and some were gladly put into the back of closets afterward. Take a look at the good, the bad and the ugly of 1980s fads and fashions.

The decade of excess, of unabashed glamour, of girls just wanna have fun and ‘greed is good’ is back in its favourite place – the spotlight. A visual feast yes, but also an era capable of making even the most seasoned dresser nervous. Don’t be – here’s how to pull off the eighties, 2016 style…

Go Big Or Go Home

This season fashion titans are supersizing ladies evening wear, so if you don’t want to fade into the background head to Saint Laurent, where Hedi Slimane’s collection is a love letter to eighties pomp. Moschino and Christian Siriano are also turning up the volume, and remember – the louder the better! Swap your bare legs (or opaques) for sheer black tights. An eighties staple and so Princess Di.

Embrace Lorenzo Serafini’s Philosophy

Several seasons in and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini has become a go-to for coolly elegant takes on the trends of the moment. No surprise then that this Italian has created one of the most modern and wearable eighties-inspired collections around. Think Siouxsie Sioux with a chic makeunder. Serafini’s black and red striped sweater ticks all the must-have boxes – ruffles, one shoulder, mohair. And you can wear it with jeans.

Pick Your Perfect Icon

The eighties truly has an icon for everyone, but will you channel glamorous Joan Collins in full Dynasty decadence (à la Roland Mouret), Madonna at her playful, rebellious peak (seen at Valentino), or the dramatic – weirdly timeless – Adam Ant (check out Balmain and Givenchy for proof). Some icons require more commitment than others – Adam Ant needs only a nautical jacket (avoid his make-up at all costs), but Joan Collins-fabulousness is a lifestyle, darling.

Do Denim, Eighties Style

Let’s be honest, eighties denim has a bad rep – but that’s because acid wash turned up and spoiled the party. In fact, the decade’s jazzy approach to jeans is the perfect way of adding some flair and personality to your weekend wardrobe. Try Off-White and Moschino for an AW16 take on retro classics. If the idea of bleached denim brings you out in a cold sweat, opt for a light stonewash as a softer, more subtle alternative.

Be a Vintage Queen

Sometimes there’s nothing like the real thing – and fashion purists can indulge themselves with Yves Saint Laurent’s bold, maximalist phase. There’s eighties fun to be had in colour-blocked dresses and pussy-bow blouses that are more Michelle Pfeiffer than Maggie Thatcher. Eighties accessories – bright, chunky jewellery, leg warmers, elaborate hair decorations, are easy to recognise and easy to wear.

  1. My closet is too small…thanks for making me realize that 🙂

  2. Zhanna, I must admit that I was a poor mature aged student in the 80s so lived in good old university student clothes. I did have a couple of more formal clothes but only got to wear them occasionally. Now (if I was young and fit) I probably would’t wear most of these except the jeans and leather jacket. A longer jacket though!

    Isn’t it funny how many times, ‘what goes around comes around’!

    Ciao

    • Hi, Helen!

      I am glad that this article has cast over you pleasant memories of the 80th.

      Anyone who grew up in or was around in the 1980s surely remembers some of the fashion trends that emerged that decade. Some were positive, and some were gladly put into the back of closets afterward…

      Have a nice day,
      Larysa
