The 1980s were iconic for fashion and culture, from the music to the TV shows. One thing that can be sure about the 80s is its uniqueness.
No matter how hard we try to forget, those trends and fashions still linger. Now and then, they see a resurgence as older generations watch younger generations pick up on these trends from the past. Here are the different 80s fashion trends that came back in 2022 to get you up to speed.
If you can recall any 80s movie, there is a good chance that it featured someone in an oversized blazer. This article wasn’t the only popular item, though.
There were whole-body suits dedicated to the blazer. In recent years, sportscoats and lighter fashion have been all the rave. But as of this year, blazers with extra-large shoulders and shoulder pads are in.
Who remembers waist-high jeans? High-waisted jeans with an acid wash and shredded, ripped patterns were in vogue in the 80s. Everyone had a pair, and the torn look came back full force this year.
So, get out your neon sunshades and denim. And if you’ve still got old fanny packs lying around, you’re in luck. This once-forgotten accessory has made a huge comeback too. It might surprise you, but fanny packs have become a fashion favorite to pair with high-waisted jeans.
Truthfully, these have been around much longer than the 80s, but that was a time when they became popular. With turtlenecks, you can let yourself shine and show off your creative side.
It’s not every day that you see someone in a turtleneck. With fall and winter just around the corner, these will become more and more visible. Imagine the comfort of a warm blanket around your neck.
These have been around for some time but have also gone in and out of style. Platforms were hot in the 60s, then in the 80s, and had another resurgence in the 90s.
It’s no surprise that they are hip now in 2022. If you want to show off and look your best, these shoes or boots are for you. These work especially well for shorter ladies. All in all, these are just great pieces of footwear to have in your wardrobe.
We have explored just some of the different 80s fashion trends that came back in 2022. There are plenty more to look at and try for yourself, so don’t be a stranger to fashion. Find what works for you.
