26 Jul Eighties Inspired Fashion
from The Sale Network
In recent years, nostalgia has become somewhat of a fashion trend. With many Gen Z’ers looking towards the late 20th Century for their style pop culture references, it would seem that the eighties are back in a big way. It has never been easier to keep up with the latest fashion with The Sale Network, as we bring you the best sales from top designers all at a discount price. Whether you prefer high fashion or high street, you’ll never have to pay full price again.
80s Fashion Trends
The eighties were defined by pop culture with icons such as Grace Jones, Demi Moore, Michael Jackson and Adam Ant paving the way for new fashion trends to emerge, from the gender defying New Romantics to the teenage Brat Pack who starred in many coming-of-age movies directed by legendary John Hughes. Now, today’s fashionistas look to the 80s with TV shows such as IT, Stranger Things and GLOW becoming hugely successful and showcasing some of the era’s incredible clothing choices.
Bold Geometric Prints
We dare you to find a fashion line from the 1980s that didn’t incorporate bold colours! Loud, playful prints were in style and in 2018 you can get your hands on some great imitations. ASOS’s OOSC Aztec All Over Print Ski Jacket doesn’t have to be exclusively for the slopes, instead pair with some cuffed jeans and trainers for a classic look.
On 1st August 1981, Music Television aired for the first time, and quickly became the biggest music channel in the world. Combine the nostalgia of an MTV that actually played music and fun graphics with the ASOS x MTV Mono Graffiti Pattern Jumper.
Its all about the volume!
If you lived through the 80s, you’ll know the era was all about volume. Farrah Fawcett encapsulates hair, Debbie Harry is a great example of how makeup was worn, and across catwalks models were adorned in clothes with big sleeves and shoulder pads. This V by Very Dress is not only a tailored fit, but it’s main feature is the volume trumpet sleeves that were popular three decades ago. You’ll feel pretty in pink with the Volume Sleeve Embellished Dress from Very.
From the same range, Very have a velvet offering in a bodycon style. Instead of accentuating the sleeves, this dress has some killer shoulder pads and is perfect for your next night out. Channel your inner Madonna and pair the Velvet Animal Bodycon Dress with some killer heels, curly hair and fishnet tights.
Once you’ve picked your outfit out, make sure you make the most out of your hair and makeup. Tease your hair with a combo of backcombing and blow drying. If you’re feeling daring, why not try a hair crimper? When it comes to your makeup, colourful eye makeup and metallic shadows were all the rage, with some colours even extending onto the cheek bones. The Sale Network don’t just do fashion, you can find a great range of sales on cosmetics here for all your beauty needs.
