Want to hear something totally rad? The 1980s and 1990s are back in a big way when it comes to fashion and beauty trends. If you were lucky enough to save a few gems, it’s time to bring them back out or style the updated versions on shelves now. Your kids may tell you to talk to the hand, but we know all of this is totally tubular.
The 80s took a pop of color to the extreme with highly pigmented shades of blue, pink and purple eyeshadow. Stila has found a way to bring back that pop with more sophisticated and longer lasting shades. Have fun experimenting with their sky blue and light mauve colors for the perfect modern take on a throwback look.
If you kept your Doc Martens from the 1990s, you’re in luck. It’s time to bring them out from the depths of your closet or opt for this modern interpretation that comes complete with animal prints and fun metal details. Pair them with a skirt, your favorite sweater dress or a pair of skinny ripped jeans to reinvent the grunge look we loved back in the day.
Neon colors scream 1980s and although we may not be dressing in a head-to-toe tracksuit anymore, we can get behind a pop of color, especially on cool kicks. These bright sneakers can add a bit of fun to any casual outfit and we promise the compliments will come rolling in.
It may be called a “belt bag” now, but it’ll always be a fanny pack to us. The name may be off-putting, but it is nice to be hands-free at a concert, sporting event or when chasing kids around. You can find them in every material from leather to canvas, with studding or wild prints, or even made specifically for workout purposes.
There was a reason we lived in our Birkenstocks all summer long–they were so comfortable. What they lacked in style, they made up in substance. Now, they’re back and they’ve upped the style quotient with new colors and accents. You can even get a pair with subtle glitter detailing or go truly old school with the classic brown.
