There’s something about ’80s fashion trends that we’re always drawn to. Everything from the boxy blazers and power suits to colourful flares and the tailored jumpsuits literally just look fucking sick. And the one thing you can always count on when it comes to fashion is that everything that’s old inevitably becomes new again.

After a few bland as fuck years in lockdown, it’s no wonder we’re craving dopamine inducing, maximalist ‘80s outfits that are nothing but bold silhouettes, bright colours, and punchy prints. We’re chasing that fun, full of energy fashion that is eternally optimistic and ready for anything the day can throw at us.

It also doesn’t hurt that each ’80s trend is also comfortable as hell and made for activities. Watch us strut to work on a Friday in a flared denim boiler suit or a hot pink power suit and command every room we walk into before hitting the bars post-5pm for a bevvie and a boogie. Seriously, these ’80s ‘fit demand to be seen.

If like us, you’re keen to dabble in the ’80s fashion resurgence this winter, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve curated the ultimate must-buy list, so you can partake in the trend.
