Oh, those were the days of some great songs, great artists and you know? They are still holding steady today!
Are we considered fuddy duddy's because we love that music? Hell no!! The 80's are here to stay dude. We hear Rick Astley's infamous "Never Gonna Give You Up" for Go Daddy, + Bonnie Tyler's "I Need A Hero" for Kia in just two of the many Superbowl LI Spots.
Allure magazine just wrote that "The '80s Will Be The Biggest Trend of 2017"! How cool is that?
And, according to Pinterest's in-house analytic team, the '80s trend isn't about to die down. So, I think we're in good company.
Man, I still have my parachute jumpsuit, ankle boots, studded leather belts. What about you? Can I get an Amen? I know you still have something from the 80's in your closet AND you still wear it! We don't have to be frumpy and look like we never grew up. We are confident enough to wear our 80's fashion and combine it with rockin' awesome looks of today to create our own standout fashion!
Here are my Top 5 go to's that still work.
The Animal Print - The 80's were all about this style
Spandex - Oh yeah, the 80's were infamous for the brightly colored spandex on the dance floor. Even Charlie's Angels were hot in it! I still have my pair of purple ones.
Scrunchies - Oh my gawd! We pulled our hair high atop our head and wore these things everywhere! We even wore them as bracelets. Like, we were so totally cool.
Metallics - The disco era was over, but man those glitzy metallic dresses were all the rage! Didn't you wear this to your prom? So, you couldn't make your own Molly Ringwald dress from "Sixteen Candles", but you were going to really stand out at the dance.
Fuddy duddy, I don't think so. Let's rock the night and wear what we want to. We can leave our friends behind. Cause if they don't dance, well, they're no friends of mine. Just kidding. We can still be friends regardless of what they wear. We know, we'll be creating our own fashion forward trends that they will all be talking about and wanting to follow.
What do you have in your closet that you still wear? Post a picture in the comments. I would love to see.
