Major Fashion Trends from the 1980’s that are back

Did you notice the coming back of an era on the runways and the streets? The era of sequins, lots of neon, spandex; loved and hated by some at the same time.

Yes, definitely the 80’s were too loud and it will be difficult to sculpt into that “flashy” fashion again after all the minimal talk. But don’t worry, if you know what elements to pick and how to pull it off without looking too risky, then the game is on!


The biggest trend from the 80’s that is back is the Big Shoulder Pads and Sleeves. Shoulder pads were considered a fashion faux pas, but oh good lord, it’s the trendiest thing this season! However, it’s safe to not wear anything voluminous with those to keep the sleek look, especially not baggy pants.
