Sequence, Glitter, Flairs, Metallics: The Eighties Are Back Ladies

Eighties fashion is proving to be more than a one-season wonder: it dominated the SS17 catwalks as prominently as it did AW16. There's no better time to experiment with this sequin-saturated trend than on New Year's Eve. Here are five eighties pieces?that might inspire you.

This stunning sequin dress from & Other Stories is an absolute showstopper. When else could you get away with?it? Perhaps?in Ibiza, but summer is much too far away. Snap it up now -?it's the perfect party outfit.

It doesn't get much more eighties than this shiny dress. Pair over leather trousers to anchor it a little bit more firmly in this decade.

This velvet blazer worn with little underneath is very Bianca Jagger at Studio 54. It's sexy but sophisticated too. The luxe texture of the velvet prevents the deep V from looking cheap.

Green velvet blazer, €149 at Massimo Dutti

I love this metallic blouse. The voluminous sleeves give it a really strong eighties hit without veering into costume. Styled with these boyish pants, it looks modern and fresh.

Metallic bow blouse, €125 at

This dress is such a good price, it's worth snapping up and playing around with. You can wear it ironically over a T-shirt and with boots?if it's a little too glam for your taste.

One-shoulder dress, €14.99 at H&M
