1980s fashion is back and brighter than ever
The big 80s are back in the fashion world and we can’t get enough of it. This season is all about bold and excessive looks to get the statement style.
A hot trend with many designers has been big block colours, which are key to any 80s looks. Catwalk shows for spring/summer 2017 have proven brighter than ever, and as we reach for the shades we can now bid farewell to the dark autumnal tones of last season.
Balenciaga, MaxMara and Valentino were amongst the many designers that explored the power of block colours. Blue, pink and yellow mimicked the magic of rainbows in all their glory, with the notion that loud, striking colours are the way forward. Maxmara didn’t stop at clothing, as the matching royal blue tones chosen even spread through smaller details. Caps, heels and belts maintained this shade too, driving home the importance of statement accessories. No need to stop at clothing, the 80s era was renowned for its eccentric hair and make-up. Contrast your eyeshadow with a bold electric lip, or opt for ultra glam volume in your hair – the bigger the better!
To follow in the footsteps of the catwalk yourself, style the trend with confidence and be fearless by matching an intense colour throughout the whole outfit. Head-to-toe coordination creates a high-end style that is lively enough for spring, while still exuding a sophisticated tone of elegance.
Release your inner eccentric and forget that less is more; the underpinning vibe of this trend is to go overboard on colour and shine bright in the eyes of your onlookers.
From designer brands to high street stores like Topshop and Urban Outfitters, these are great first steps in your journey to styling the 80s trend, so get out there and embrace your inner 80s goddess.
