The Return Of 80’s Fashion

From The Eye of the Tiger by Survivor and Beat It by Michael Jackson, to sitcom Family Ties and the ‘Keytar’, the ’80s was certainly an era of memorable trends, and iconic fashion was no exception. Big hair, neon colours and high-waisted jeans all played a major part in the ’80s, with the likes of Madonna and Brooke Shields donning these statement looks and setting trends on a daily basis. In my latest blog, I’m taking you back in time to some of the top fashion trends from the ’80s that are currently in the midst of an almighty comeback!

High Waisted Jeans

Low-rise jeans may have been a hit during the late 1970s, but in the ’80s, the higher the waistband of your jeans sat, the better! From then, they have never truly gone out of style. With the likes of Topshop selling their iconic Joni jeans year-round and even Zara selling mom jeans representative of the era, it’s safe to say that this style of jean is here to stay. Whether you opt for super high-waisted skinny jeans or a simple pair of high-rise mom jeans, this type of jean can be easily styled with a shirt, tailored jacket and white trainers for a preppy look. To dress them up, pair with a top, blazer and court shoes.

Neon Colours

Dare to be bold in highlighter yellow, neon pink or even electric orange and release your inner 80’s. Even as we descend into winter, neon colours are now more popular than ever – stylist Veronika Heilbrunner has been mixing her prints and colours and making quite the trending statement. To stand out from the crowd, why not clash two of your favourite bold brights? You’re sure to turn heads! For a more subtle look, opt for a statement jacket, whether it’s a red puffer jacket or blue faux-leather biker jacket.

Cropped Sweatshirts

What better way to show off your high-waisted jeans than with a cropped sweatshirt? These lightweight, cropped garments may make you shiver initially, but paired with a belt, boots and warm jacket, you can easily rock this look without feeling the cold. Every retailer from H&M to Moschino now have their own version of this classic, so you are sure to find one that perfectly matches your sense of style.

Big Hair

We’ve all heard of the phrase ‘the bigger, the better’ and finally, this once again applies to your hair! Gone are the days of carrying around hairspray to tame your flyaways because, thanks to the ’80s, big hair has made a comeback and we’re totally here for it! From bold curls to the beehive ponytail, such hairstyles are now a go-to for most of us. With little preparation time and the freedom to be messy, it’s easy to see why so many people are jumping on this trend.

With high-waisted jeans, frill, neon colours and even big hair and side ponytails making a return this winter, it’s time to begin considering the different ways you can incorporate these trends into your own wardrobe. Whether you like to stand out from the crowd or want to subtly introduce these styles into your day-to-day outfits, you can!
