Having lived through the 1980s as a high schooler, I’ve lived the fashion trends once, and am delighted that some of them (leg warmers, bright colors) are back. I’m glad some of the not-so-flattering styles have been neglected (horrendous shoulder pads and Hammer pants), though… what were we thinking? I didn’t keep my favorite pieces, sadly, so I’m stocking up on a few updates, and thought I’d share with you! Here are 7 ways to incorporate 1980s fashion into your wardrobe and your look.
1. Carry Your Love Bag
Price: $37.99 at modcloth.com
This adorable red heart-shaped bag by Let Them Eat Cake is all 80s sass, from its faux ostrich exterior to its matching gold-tone chain shoulder strap. Sling it over your shoulder with a boxy blazer and velvet leggings or wear it cross-body with a frilly floral dress.
