Add Some Eighties to Your Look

The Eighties are back this spring. It’s time to raid your mother’s closet or dig up your own collection of shoulder pads and bright skirts, or rent our eighties edit.

For those of us who need a reminder on what Eighties style is, either stream The Breakfast Club or keep reading. It was a decade filled with statement pieces, big hair, and bright colours. Designers such as Christian Lacroix and Jean-Paul Gaultier dominated styles with shapely skirts and confident forms. 

Style icons of the time ranged from a young Madonna with her pre-grunge aesthetics and overuse of accessories, to brat-pack actress Mollie Ringwald’s layers on layers of kitsch pieces, all the way to Princess Diana and her dramatic shoulders over elegant pieces.

The catwalks this season displayed an array of Eighties-esque looks, with Balenciaga’s return to the large shoulder, or Isabel Marant’s use of metallic fabrics, or YSL’s take on the sweetheart neckline.

However you choose to go about your return to the Eighties, we’ve got you covered.
