Fashion trend of the 80s

Whether we want to admit it or not, power suits, acid-wash jeans and polka-dot dresses are making a comeback. Once dubbed eye candy by the fashion world, these loud, bright and eclectic ’80s styles have returned, sparking a revival of fads inspired by the looks of nostalgic classics The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink.

The burning question is how to rock this trend if you are averse to 80’s fashion but still want to be a part of this latest trend? Scroll below to check out these 80’s inspired pieces that will suit any chic woman today. And no, you don’t need to revive the perm — that hairstyle is long gone — and with good reason.

Take a page from me, or rather your parents’ library, of prom photos — you don’t need neon prints to pay homage to ’80s fashion. Dump the purple lipstick and blue eyeshadow and opt for the looks below instead.
