Let’s go back to the future with the electrifying era of 80s clothes.
80s fashion trends
80s clothes turned the volume up to 11. The golden era of metal bands and experimental synth-pop gave us some eccentric 80s styles.
With bright colors, bold prints, and even bigger sleeves. It was the decade of excess in every way.
Shoulder pads and power suits
Everything needed shoulder pads in the 80s. From the oversized blazers of power suits to casual dresses and shirts. Those foam pads were everywhere. But if you’re not feeling as bold with your shoulders these days, they’re easy to remove.
80s jeans were acid wash, high-waisted, tapered, and cuffed. Worn with band t-shirts and oversized leather bomber jackets.
Dresses had polkadots or busy prints, with puff sleeves, peplum skirts, and ruffled layers. Blouses were never just plain blouses. There had high-neck pussy bows, ruffles, lace, and embellishments on every collar.
Even casual sweaters received the 80s treatment, with knits jazzed up with sequins, patterns, and statement patterns.
The aerobics obsession in the 80s made its way into everyday clothes—with neon leggings, bodysuits, geometric print windbreakers, and tracksuits. Parachute pants gave your legs the volume to rival your shoulders. And if the print looked like something Pac-Man dreamed up? Even better.
