80’s Fashion

Do you remember when you were little and your parents insisted that their old clothes and hairstyles would be back in style one day? Did you do like many and laugh at the old people who must be getting senile? There was no way bell-bottom jeans were coming back in style!


Current fashion trend watchers warned back in January that the 80′s comeback was primed and ready to roll, and if this falls catwalk lineup is anything to judge by, they are probably right! There are many fashion and style looks that are going to be eerily familiar to some of us.


Leggings have never gone completely out of style thanks to pop diva’s like Lindsay Lohan and Lady GaGa, however look to see some bold prints and neon spandex to hit the shelves soon. They will go great with an oversized off the shoulder blouse, which is also said to be on the horizon.

Animal Print

Has anyone forgotten the large bold animal print fabrics that were all the rage in the mid 80′s? They are on their way back to but with a little modification. Instead of the bold in your face, style of the 80′s you will likely see a more abstract and toned down animal print in the near future.


Anyone up for chrome silver nail polish and bright metallic blue eye shadow? Those were the days, but current trends while borrowing from this bygone era will tend to be more muted and a bit less flashy. Watch for polish, make-up and even clothes that give you a soft glimmer in muted shades instead of the bright bold of the 80′s.


Clothes and make-up are not the only places having an 80′s comeback. Have you seen a blockbuster film lately? Transformers and Fame (set to open in Sept 09) is just a couple of the 80′s comeback movies we have seen lately and if the rumors are any indication there are many more where they came from.

In Process

  • Smurfs movie
  • Teen Wolf

The remakes do not stop there my friend; the 80′s comeback has and will continue to make its presence felt on the music shelves as well. However, those who actually remember the original releases may not recognize them in their new forms.


  • Against All Odds
  • Every Breath You Take
  • Hungry Like the Wolf
  • Missing You – (originally rock remade country)

For better or worse, it looks like an 80′s comeback is in full swing and gaining momentum. Fashion, television, movies, and makeup are all going to show signs of this in the coming months. Dig out your stonewashed jeans and make an appointment for a haircut; you are going to see some major fashion changes soon.
