Do you love all things 80’s? Unless we’re talking some classic movies or dance-y music, ahem hello Marky Mark, I don’t know if I could agree. The big hair, the shoulder pads… I’d say the eighties are more like the decade I love to make fun of. So if you’d asked me earlier this year how I felt about 80’s fashion making a comeback, I’d probably have laughed. But lately, I’ve found myself donning some eighties-inspired looks and pieces. Say it ain’t so.
3. Printed Pants.Let’s just say this: at least the patterned pants of today aren’t parachute pants or made of tracksuit material.
I don’t have much to say for myself here. They’re pretty much the exact same as they were 25 years ago. The only redeeming factor? I’m not wearing them with those bright, obnoxious shoe laces and multiple pairs of socks.
5. Jean Jackets.Good thing they’ve been redesigned in a more modern, fitted cut because let’s be honest: those boxy things of the past weren’t flattering on anyone. And trust, you will never catch this girl in an acid wash version. NEVER.
I guess what’s old really is new again.
Tell me, what eighties-inspired styles do you love? And which ones would you not be caught dead in?
