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

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.

Ruby sequin dress, €95 at & Other Stories

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.

Shiny flowy dress, €69.95 at Zara

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 uterque.com

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
