If you’re anything like Ree Drummond, the ’80s was one of your favorite decades. It is a time remembered for incredible music (thank you, Madonna and Whitney Houston 🙏), fantastic dancing, and classic ’80s movies that we still love to watch today. Today, those movies inspire so many cute Halloween costumes and everyday outfits, which can capture both the avant-garde and sometimes questionable 😂 fashion choices of the era. Some of these ensembles age well—just look at how cute Paige looked in Ree’s ’80s prom dress! Bold color? Check. Puffy sleeves? Check. A bit of sequin action? Check. And while no one needs to go back to the days of perms, we’re glad to say that the best styles from the decade are back in fashion.
If it’s time to give your wardrobe an update, check out the trendiest fashion items for ’80s outfits. The best part of ’80s fashion is that there’s truly something for everyone: scrunchies, neon colors, and big earrings! You can go for the glam punky look with Chelsea boots and a leather jacket or the preppy Heathers route with a plaid skirt and varsity jacket. Need a new work outfit? Throw on an oversized bright blazer to keep warm and turn heads. And there’s always a good ol’ Americana look by pairing high-waisted jeans with an oversized denim jacket. Which of these trends were you wearing back in the day?
