Get the Eighties’ Look…à la Runway

Probably considered as one of the most recurring trends out there, 80s references are truly taking over our favorite runways – and rightfully so, might we add.

Some people might remember this trend as the “walk of shame” of all decades, while others simply love its eccentric signatures. Either way, it was a game-changing time in the history of fashion and looking back at its best features can’t do us any harm, can it now? We are all guilty of watching too many 80s movies, getting inspired by their costumes and shouting out Cyndi Lauper’s lyrics as we listen time and time again to “Girls just wanna have fun”. But do we really have what it takes – in terms of inspiration of course – to fully channel those funky looks? Luckily, the Spring-Summer 2019 runways did the decade justice, as many brands infused their collections with 80s references, from big and bold shoulders to 80s prom dresses with a lot of taffeta and ruffles, to spandex – yes indeed – oversized suits and cinched waists.

Of course, we’re not asking you to look like an 80s TV commercial, but looking for a bit of runway inspiration can do you wonders!
