Fashion Inspiration – The 80s Fashion

I was born in the middle of the 80s, so I am quite passionate about the 80s fashion. The fashion and style of that decade has a special place in my heart. For those who are nota ware, the 80s fashion is all about shoulder pads, polka dots, bold style, colours, and silhouettes. It was an era filled with ripped tights, biker jackets, oversized blazers and poof skirts. The fashion back then felt and looked completely different from what we have now especially for women’s fashion. The designs and colours were so bold and fierce. Women felt and looked strong wearing them.

If I could go back in time to a particular era, it will definitely be the 1980s. Here are some of the pieces courtesy of Harper Bazaar you would have probably worn back in the 1980s –

I wore pieces with shoulder pads well into the 90s. It was one of those fashion trends that just didn’t go away quickly which was great because I had the time to play around with the trend. Shoulder pads have a way of making the outfit pop pop out even more. This piece right here is so very pretty. The green colour is stunning and the design is so bold. I am loving it!

This is another piece from the 80s I really like. I was and still am a huge fan of polka dots. They’re so feminine and pretty. I love the way she is wearing this piece. The accessories take the outfit to a whole new level. It is simple but effortlessly chic.

I am happy to see current trends being hugely influenced by the 80s fashion. The big shoulders are somewhat back, the underwear as outerwear trend is really back and so is the oversized jewellery look.

What do you think of the 80s fashion? Are you a fan?

Audrey Hepburn is one of the most stylish women ever, so her being a style icon should come as no surprise. I am surprised I haven’t featured her in the style category already as a style icon. This stylish woman was the real deal as far as fashion and style was concerned by in the day, and her style is still influencing trends today. Audrey Hepburn’s style was effortlessly chic, very stylish and feminine. She knew what looked good on her and she rocked it! This woman is definitely one of my favourite style icons.

I love how Hepburn could look amazing in pretty much anything, even on her dress down days. The key to her style is in her simplicity. If you have a capsule wardrobe, you easily recreate many of her famous looks. This stylish woman was a huge fan of monochrome pieces and simple chic accessories. She was usually rocking an all black look. Audrey Hepburn loved her black dresses and skirts, and her outfits always stood out for the right reasons. She was and still is a force to reckon with in the fashion and style world. Some may find her simple outfits boring but I think they are super fashionable. Maybe that’s because she had such an amazing charisma.

Hey fashion and style lovers! Happy new month! Welcome to the amazing month of April. The style icon for this month is the very stylish Lauren Pope. For reality tv show fans, you would recognise Lauren Pope from the hit tv show – The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE). For those who do not know this style icon, Lauren Pope is a model, television personality and DJ. She regularly appeared on TOWIE until she officially left the show in March 2019. I have been a huge fan of Pope’s sense of style. She was one of the reasons why I usually watched TOWIE back in the day. The girls on the reality show were always dressed in their Sunday’s best and they gave me loads of fashion inspiration. Pope’s outfits always look very nice on her. She has a great taste in fashion and she knows what looks good on her.
