80s Fashion Is Back In 2019

August 4, 2019

Bell bottoms, bright colors and Billy Ocean come to mind when I envision the 80s. Even though I was born in the 90s, I can appreciate the aesthetic of the decade that proceeded my very existence. Apparently the rest of the world can too because the 80s have made a major comeback. Here are ways to help you channel the most popular 80s fashion trends in 2019.

1. Bell Bottom Jeans

Alice + Olivia $118

A list of 80s trends wouldn’t be complete without mentioning bell bottoms and this pair from Alice + Olivia is perfect.

2. Bright Colors

REVOLVE $98
REVOLVE $55

Both of these tops from REVOLVE call back to the 90s with their bold, bright colors. I especially love the neon green racer back bodysuit.

3. Mom Jeans

NORDSTROM $34.98

This 80s fashion trend has been prevalent in recent years, especially 2019. I don’t foresee mom jeans going out of style any time soon. Chrissy Teigen and Kendall Jenner are often seen wearing this type of jean.

4. Kitten Heels

kate spade new york $94.80

These chic white kitten heels incorporate two great 80s trends in one shoe – slide on style and short length.

5. Culottes

REVOLVE $165

Add a modern twist to the culotte trend of the 80s with this striped Sun Becomes Her Sayulita jumpsuit.

6. Oversized Accessories

BLOOMINGDALE’S $287

According to the 80s, bigger is better when it comes to style. Oversized accessories like these Givenchy aviators are worthy of a wardrobe no matter the decade.

7. Ringer Tees

REVOLVE $38

Forever cute and casual, ringer tees are one of the better fads to spring from the 80s. Ringer tees come in a variety of styles these days, including frayed and cropped.

8. Acid Wash Jean Jackets

ARDENE $44.90

Honestly can anyone explain why acid wash was so popular in the 80s? I truly don’t understand the appeal. Here’s a more subtle take on this inescapable 80s trend.
