13 Jan 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.
Unique 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 2020 you can get your hands on some great imitations. Polo Ralph Lauren’s Overhead Anorak Jacket doesn’t have to be exclusively for the cold weather, instead pair with some cuffed jeans and trainers for a classic look.
Guns N’ Roses were one of the most influential bands of the 80’s and their bold style was represented with wardrobe full of unique outfits (Let’s not mention the hair…)! BoohooMAN’s Guns N’ Roses License Sweatshirt captures their dark style and will fit into any 80’s inspired outfit.
Just like today Adidas were one of the most influential brands of the 80’s with their range of eye-catching clothing. These Adidas Originals Adiplore Track Pants are a major throw back to their past and will look amazing with the Polo Ralph Lauren’s Overhead Anorak Jacket!
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 Tantra will make you feel pretty in silver with the Bright long sleeve dress.
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.
