Big Earrings meant big style in the 80s. Known as door-knockers, the bigger and brighter your earrings, the better. Huge earrings paired with animal print were the most fashionable accessory around. (As pictured: these black and silver animal print earrings are a new take on the old look.)
80s fashion: Leggings
Leggings are back. The 80s made them popular with neon colors and more animal print. In 2016, whether you prefer solids or prints, leggings go with almost any outfit and are the most comfortable pants out there.
80s fashion: Jean Jackets
Jean jackets compliment an outfit in a stylish yet tomboy type fashion. Stonewash or acid wash was the trendiest for 80s jean jackets. Popular again for day or night, a jean jacket pairs with a maxi just as easily as with a flowy top and leggings.
80s fashion: Crop Tops
Crop tops made their way to the fashion scene in the 1940’s but became more popular in the 80s. From workout outfits to a glamourous night out, the crop top was the look to have. Popularity rose in the 90s and reemerged again in the 2016 as a bralette. If showing off skin is your thing, this is your look.
