CHAMPAGNE FASHION WEEK + my love letter to the 80’s

Unless you’ve been living under a rock {which actually sounds kind of nice} or not on Instagram, well, it’s FASHION WEEK!

It’s been really fun to watch the shows via Instagram. I love seeing all the personalities & styles that each designer brings to the table.

SO- in honor of fashion week, I decided to host my own here on the blog. No crowds, no expensive flights, no late nights… right here on your time.

Basically, each day, I’ll feature a collection on what I’m digging for fall. BUT y’all know me, they will all be VERY 80’s influenced. Basically, trends from the 80’s that I plan on channeling this fall in a major way.

Fun right?!

In my opinion, the 80’s don’t get enough credit.

Blog after blog, there are love stories to decades past, from the elegant 40’s, to the dapper 50’s, to the mod 60’s, to the trendy 70’s.

You get to the 80’s & it tends to be the butt of jokes.

I mean, think of all the 80’s themed parties! I’ve seen all the stereotypes from “ugly prom” to the permed out hair, to the workout clothes, to the bright blue make-up. You name it – I know you can picture it!

I feel like it is the most misunderstood decade… and it happens to be my favourite.

This may be a bold statement, but hey, that’s what the 80’s were all about… but, I think the 80’s was the most influential on style today.

The 80’s were bold – VERY bold.

But it broke a lot of fashion molds & influenced fashion in a major way. I find it is the most expressive decade of all, especially for women.

Some may think 80’s and think leg warmers, shoulder pads, tapered pants, & frizzy hair… however, I see the 80’s and think power suits, leather, neon &/or pastel colours, Wayfarers {a must!}, polarized sunglasses as a whole, silks, velour & velvet, Memphis design, bold silhouettes {thanks to those shoulder pads}, bright make up, the birth of athleisure, graphic tee’s, unisex clothing… the list goes on.

The 80’s was also pivotal for the modelling industry as a whole. In fact, in 1981 was when Chanel signed their first exclusive booking with Debbie Parsons. Iman, Brooke Shields {& those eyebrows! again, 80s}, Janice Dickinson, Cindy Crawford, Elle MacPherson, Christie Brinkley were among others who started their modeling career in the 80’s and really paved the road for the iconic modeling industry of the 90’s

In fact, there’s a major nostalgia these days for 90’s fashion as a whole – I get it! I have the same nostalgia! However, it would of never evolved to what it was if the 80’s didn’t precede it.

The 80’s was an interesting time as it was the birth of the computer and the internet. It was the mash up between man & computer, which would change the world forever. Things went from radio & print to television & computers. Steve Jobs & Bill Gates changed our lives as we know it.

[dahz_framework_image_content title=”WEAR YOUR SUNGLASSES AT NIGHT” id=”7608″ btn=”I WANT!” btn_url=”http://shopstyle.it/l/hdPK”]Just make sure they are the Wayfarer’s – a must for any 80’s kid! These frames are a classic and will go with literally every single outfit![/dahz_framework_image_content]

SO-

It’s safe to say I love the 80’s. I think it’s righteously the most rad decade of all & the one that has effected life today the most.

Signed & sealed,  that’s my love letter to the 80’s!

Check back each day this week for 80’s trends that you can rock this fall!

Now, what say you? What is your favourite decade or trends?! Let’s hear it!
