The 80s style has been here and back a ton of times in the last couple of years. It seems like every season there’s always a style that comes stemming from Madonna’s golden years.
How exactly do you do 80s style without looking like you came out of the Material Girl and Holiday’s videos?
Elements of the 80s Style
For this look I styled the hair with a slight twist, a cute short mod cut. Sure it might sounds more like the 60s but to make sure your 80s style is tamed, we can’t go all the way with every single element (unless it’s Halloween).
This animal print top is great, it is one print that always comes back in style. So if you invest in an animal print top, once the season is over, don’t get rid of it, it’ll surely come back.
The denim vest was a last minute addition that really brought the 80s style out.
If you want to add accessories, put on a bangle or earrings, but don’t over do it. There are already enough elements in this outfit.
I went with the obvious choice, skinny jeans in black. This compliments the black in the top and makes it a little ore rock and roll.
I went with flats for comfort and practicality. They are pretty stylish though with the gold chain on the front, and the body is quilted.
