Eighties fashion is back on the runways and is about to be seen on the best-dressed women in town.
With vintage styles like power shoulder making a comeback, what are the 80s fashions that inspired designers so much?
Fashion was at its best during the 1980s as people took self-expression to new heights. It was socially accepted to dress like an individual following the rhythm of one’s own drum. Observing the unique styles of the population has created a combination of openly loud, electrifying and trendy clothing choices.
Thus, during this period the designers revolutionized fashion and the trends that the company decided to follow were limitless. The clothes worn in the 1980s depicted people trying to find themselves and doing so through creative designs. The common footprints identified did not necessarily match each other, but rather showed individuality. Today, clothing styles from this era are back in stores proving that vintage is trendy again!
The reintroduction of 80s fashion was well received. There are many subtle references to the 1980s that creep into today’s culture and whiz down the runways. It is no surprise that these fashions appear once again.
As the world economy struggles to get out of deficit, the ability for people to raid their closets and refurbish old bits is exactly what we need during frugal times. People respond well and reflect on old memories: the music, the clothes and the attitude. For older generations, they are given a chance to reconnect with themselves.
Today’s teens suddenly see their ’80s mom in a different light. When they adopt this “new” dressing style, they may notice that she is just a little cooler than before. The once awkward big hair, loud earrings, and sky-reaching shoulder pads are dazzling. Furthermore, every generation can see benefits from the reintroduction of such fashions.
It is easy to see in the shape, cut and style of 80s dresses what makes fashion unique. The drapes, the shoulder pads, the extra layer of flounces, the bright patterns (polka dots and strong flowers) all scream vintage. From dressing up in the office during the day to cocktails and prom dresses for the evening, the ’80s have it all.
It is important to remember that although these trends are back, incorporate them in smaller doses, as these vintage dresses are fashion statements themselves. Models of this era are big, bold and full-bodied and need limited accessories to make them shine. Some other distinguishing features of these dresses are large buttons and bows.
So now is the time to whip out your fluffy mini dresses, sweaters, and even empire waist doll dresses. They are all hot right now and ready to be paired with a modern twist for a whole new look.
Take some time to remember these trends with your children and remember how they became so popular. Browsing through old photo albums and then finding clothes that have been put away can be a truly exciting experience.
The best part about this revival is the fact that you can look elegant without breaking the bank. Instead of turning your nose up at thrift and thrift stores, dare to take a look at the low-cost article they offer, you may be in for a surprise!
