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
A list of 80s trends wouldn’t be complete without mentioning bell bottoms and this pair from Alice + Olivia is perfect.
2. Bright Colors
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
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
These chic white kitten heels incorporate two great 80s trends in one shoe – slide on style and short length.
Add a modern twist to the culotte trend of the 80s with this striped Sun Becomes Her Sayulita jumpsuit.
6. Oversized Accessories
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
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
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.
