The Best of 80s Fashion in my Wardrobe

I was born in the 1980s so it comes as no surprise that I am a huge fan of the fashion from back then. There’s something so fascinating about the 80s fashion. It was a stylish decade of bold styles, colours and patterns. Which is why it is still one of the most eclectic decades in fashion till date. There’s a lot of 80s fashion in our pieces and accessories today, and I am here for them all.

Here are some of the ways I am enjoying the best of the 80s fashion in my style world today –

A power suit always works! I have many jumpsuits in my wardrobe and they always do the work! Power suits were a big fashion statement in the 1980s, and it comes as no surprise to see that they are still on trend today. You can slay easily when you find the right suit for your body shape.

So there are 2 big pieces from the 80s fashion in this outfit. The tweed blazer and the fishnet tights. Tweed was also a big fashion statement in the 80s. I love a good tweed jacket. It always works and looks so posh. This is my current favourite tweed piece and I always enjoy styling it. The fishnet tights are super pretty. I love wearing them when it isn’t too cold.

 

High Waist Jeans

The legendary Tina Turner made the High Waist Jeans so cool! She wore them jeans so well. I have a soft spot for high waist jeans now thanks to her. They remind me of the 80s fashion and how amazing it was back then.

Kids Fashion – The Kiddies go to Disco

*Affiliate link.

Yay another kids fashion post, and this time it has a disco feel! The first year of primary school is almost over, and we are happily looking forward to the summer holidays. The kiddies had a blast at reception. They love school so much. I have never met kids that love school as much as my twins. It is so amazing how much they have grown in the first of big school. I am so proud of their achievements and they are even more proud of how far they have come.

The whole school thingy is still new to me. For example, I was shocked to discover that children get end of year reports at the end of the school year. I was under the impression that since they don’t get graded, there won’t be any school reports. So the school reports came as a pleasant surprise. They both did so very well, we couldn’t be more proud.

The Kiddies go to Disco

Their school has a disco last Christmas but the twins didn’t get to attend. So when the summer disco came, my daughter made sure they attended. The excitement before the disco was so much, that we had to take photos before heading off to remember the special day of their first disco!  I shared some other photos on my Instagram page as well.

My daughter loves the dress she has on. She is more of a dress/skirt girl, very girly. You won’t catch playing dress up wearing anything else. She loved he overall look, and had a blast at the disco. My son on the other hand doesn’t really cate what he wears, as long as I think it looks good, he is happy to wear it. It was warm day, so the easiest pieces for him wear were a t-shirt and shorts.

They both came back with many stories of who they danced with, music they played, what they ate, and more. It was definitely a fun evening for them.

These pictures show off their charming personalities perfectly. My duchess is very pictures and fashion. She loves posing and thinking of ways to style a look/piece differently. My little man on the other hand can’t be bothered with fashion, style or photography. He likes taking pictures every now and again, but likes cheeky pictures best. They behave alike and yet so different at the same time.

Why your clothes don’t fit right

Many of us wear clothes that don’t fit right. Walking around in ill-fitting clothes does nothing for our body shape and it could put a dampen on our mood if most of our clothes don’t look good on us. I have discovered that a lot of people have no clue what to look out for when picking clothes. They just look at the design and colours, pick a size they think would fit them and run with it. That is how to pick clothes that don’t fit you. If you want to know how to select clothes that fit right then keep reading.

Don’t squeeze in!

The first step in buying clothes that fit is to get them in the right size. Don’t be tempted to get a size smaller and squeeze in. It won’t look good on you. Remember that jacket/coat sleeves should hit the wrist bone. The sleeves should be slim to show off the shape of the arms but loose enough to allow you wear a top underneath.

 

Can you bend?

When buying jackets, coats and tops, make sure you can bend your arms easily. Ensure you can bend your knees too when trying on jeans, skirts and dresses.

 

Check the trousers!

Check that the trouser you have an eye on doesn’t have excess material in the zipper and crotch area. This is very important as some of them tend to have more than the fabric required here.

Can you tuck in that shirt?

Ensure the shirt you have on can be tucked in neatly. Some shirts are not long enough to tuck in because the designers scrimp on fabric at the bottom of the shirt. Don’t go for shirts like that unless you enjoy tucking in your shirt every 30 minutes.

 

Go for comfortable clothing.

Avoid clothing that isn’t comfortable to wear. Any garments that feels uncomfortable or painful to wear isn’t worth the hassle. Style and comfort go hand in hand. You can’t be stylish if you are not comfortable.

 

Are the buttons in the right places?

Before you buy a new piece, check where the buttons are. This is really important as where the buttons are can make or break the entire look. I hate it when buttons have gaps in between them that reveal the cleavage. That can be so embarrassing.

When opened, the top buttons should sit just above the bust.

 

Are you familiar with any of these clothing issues?
