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 –
Green blouse with shoulder pads over a black leotard.
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!
Polka dot dress, red wide-brim hat and matching belt
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?
