Back to the 80s: fashion inspiration from Netflix’s GLOW girlsFashion & LifestyleNews & FeaturesShopping & Trends
When you hear about a new Netflix original show from the creators of Orange is the New Black it is hard to not get excited. Especially when you hear that it will feature another largely female ensemble cast. Add in the 80s and women wrestling into the mix and you have got a recipe for hype. If you haven’t had a chance to binge GLOW yet you need to right now. And if you’re not sold yet perhaps these GLOW inspired garments and accessory ideas will.
Sneakers are always a must and Reeboks are a staple of the 80s. White sneakers should feature in any wardrobe. These intense white hi-tops have a classic vibe and will go with any outfit. Swap out your Adidas Superstars once in a while to give your outfit an edge.
If you want that classic aerobics look pair your hi-top Reeboks with some kick ass leg warmers. If this a little too out there for you but you still want to get in on that 80s feel, swap out your normal slippers for a snazzy pair to wear around the house. You will feel like jazz ballet goddess in your pyjamas.
High-waisted blue jeans
Say goodbye to your black skinnies and hello to blue jeans. You want them high-waisted and you want them light. And let’s not forget about comfort, this is your everyday wear so you want to feel good at them all day long. Roll up your pant legs for an added touch.
Onto something a little less comfort minded. If you grew up in the 80s or 90s you know that a workout cannot be done without putting on a leotard. As GLOW is all about working out hard it is no surprise leotards made our list. If you really want to stand out at your next yoga class clad yourself in a flashy one piece.
Mohair or cashmere sweaters
Sometimes you just need to be comfy and fabulous. Not only do these incredibly soft fabrics feel good they are real eyecatchers. If you want a chill outfit with a little pizzazz then invest in a Mohair sweater.
We don’t care if your uncle wears them on holiday, maybe he’s onto something. Pick a crazy print, bold colours or slogans. If you really want to reach back in time and connect with the 80s get this MTV printed bum bag. We just might.
