It may be 2022, but we’re turning back the fashion clock to the ’80s. The drama! The nostalgic prints! The lite brite hues! What’s not to love? When it comes to this era, there’s no excuse to be anything but extra. Want to take the trend for a spin? Here’s an ’80s fashion breakdown with all the details we’re hearting to rent in the season ahead.
Big prints pack a big punch. Keep it casual with allover patterned knits, or bring a subtle ’80s twist to your next night out with a playful floral mini.
Don’t shy away from colors that pop. You look great in rainbow brights! Reach for saturated hues in interesting silhouettes to strike the perfect balance of daring and chic.
POWER SUITS, PLEASE
Big shoulders, bigger attitude. That’s the magic of suiting up! Bring boxy silhouettes into your night out wardrobe with tuxedo-style minis, or mix it up by pairing an oversized jacket with your favorite trousers and crop top.
GO BIG OR GO HOME
Turn the wow factor up to the max with larger than life accents. Choose one detail as the main attraction — poofy sleeves, big bows, whatever your heart desires — and stick to solid hues in sleek cuts to avoid having the dress wear you.
SEQUINS FOR ALL
New Year’s Eve is over and done with for another few hundred days, but the sequins are here to stay. Sparkle on, baby!
