October 1st, 2019 by Jennifer Beile The Five 80’s Trends You’ll be Seeing this Fall & How to Style Them
Trends cycling back into fashion from the ’80s is not new. This year, we’ve seen the resurgence of kitten heels, bike shorts, neon colors, and chunky sneakers. But this fall, more trends that we (rightfully) bid adieu to more than two decades ago will be cycling back into style. The key to pulling off these bold ’80s trends without looking like you’re dressed in your Halloween costume is subtle. The art of being subtle while trying to style neon colors, bows, lace, exaggerated sleeve,s and shoulder details seems almost impossible. The solution is to focus on one aspect of a trend you’re interested in and build an outfit around it, not completely of it. Then, keep the rest of the outfit understated.
Acid Wash Denim
Ruffles, lace, and puffy sleeve details are all components that make up the sweet, nostalgic prairie dress that is pretty and flattering for all body types. They can be styled in a variety of ways, from rocker chic to free-spirited boho.
Shoulder pads are back! They may not be as big as they were in the ’80s, but the strong detail will give you the confidence that you deserve. Throw a strong-shouldered blazer atop your outfit for a smart casual look.
Traditional scarf motifs have been expanded from strictly scarves to blouses, skirts, dresses, and even accenting accessories and jackets. Pair these bold pieces with otherwise minimalist outfits to make a statement this season.
My Instagram feed is full of influencers and style gurus knotting their sweaters over their shoulders, layering a collared button-down under a simple knit sweater, and pairing trousers with loafers. All of these are a nod to the classic prep school chic of the ’80s.
There is no denying that the 90’s were a decade in fashion that will truly never be forgotten. This past summer, we saw quite a few nostalgic trends popping up (i.e. bucket hats & singlet tanks) and now that fall is in full swing, we can fully expect to see even more trends inspired by this eclectic decade! I, for one, am super excited to add some 90’s inspired pieces and trends to my cooler weather wardrobe! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite 90’s inspired trends that I have been seeing on Instagram lately and I have a feeling that these looks will inspire you to add some throwback flair to your fall fits!
From head to toe, this look is totally reminiscent of the 90’s! Longline leather jackets were a must-have layering piece back then and this chic and functional silhouette is definitely making a comeback for fall 2019.
A Cute Cardigan
Fall is my favorite season for fashion because it means we get to break out layers and outerwear! As I scroll through Instagram each day, I am seeing fall outerwear trends pop out at me, building excitement for the crisp weather to come. Instead of covering up your style with a coat simply for warmth, celebrate the new season with bold outer layers that showcase your style.
Rich Colors & Bold Prints
Oversized Puffer Coats
Puffer coats get a bad rap for being unflattering but they are practical and oftentimes necessary during the cold months depending on where you live. The comfortable trend has given way to the acceptance of the practical oversized puffer.
Shearling, Sherpa, and Fur
There is no denying that neutrals are an essential color palette for any wardrobe, no matter the season. When it comes to the cooler months, I personally tend to gravitate more towards these muted hues (specifically beige, black and white) because they are easy to wear, a breeze to mix and match, and effortlessly chic! These neutral hues may be synonymous with the fall and winter season, but there are definitely ways to wear them so that your fits look anything but ordinary! I’ve rounded up four of my favorite fashionistas whose perfectly-styled, neutral colored outfits (and entire IG feed for that matter) will inspire you to wear your go-to neutral pieces in some fresh ways!
Not only is she is style queen, but Linh is also an interior stylist who gravitates towards classic silhouettes in versatile, neutral hues. If you’re seeking ways to spruce up your neutral looks, Linh is your style go-to!
