You know what they say, wait around long enough and you will see trends come back around again. Eighties fashion is a bit like marmite, you either love it or you hate it, and we love it. When you think of eighties fashion leg warmers, sequins and shoulder pads are probably the first things that come to mind. You may have noticed that eighties fashion has been popping up all over the place so we have put together some helpful tips so that you can rock the trend without looking like you are off to a fancy dress party.
Everyone likes to laugh and joke about shoulder pads but they don’t have to be oversized. Subtle shoulder pads can actually give your outfit structure. To keep your look modern try a shoulder padded blazer thrown over a white shirt, skinny jeans and heels.
Sunglasses with their super reflective lenses pop up every summer. They have become a festival must have paired with high waisted shorts and a boho style top.
Customised denim jackets
Who didn’t own an oversized denim jacket in the eighties? You can guarantee that anyone who didn’t have one wanted one. Now is your chance if you missed out the first time around. It is easy to pick up a jacket with painted art, pins and patches or you can even customise your own. Just make sure that the jacket is light wash denim with a generous cut.
Sequins were an essential of the eighties but they are quite hard to carry off as they can be a bit over the top. A great way to introduce sequins to your style is to just select one piece that really makes a statement while keeping the rest of your outfit quite subtle.
