These 80s dresses might just make it into your everyday wardrobe
Who knew that 80s dresses were going to make a comeback, especially after you burned them all in the 90s for being so hideous? We've got some ways to make them fit into your every day life.
Fall trends are up and at 'em! And while everyone is running around getting ready for Halloween and Oktoberfest, I’m wondering what new trend is going to enter my closet. With the combination of these two events, it’s obviously going to be obnoxious. And so we have puffy sleeved, ruffled 80s inspired dresses
Why? Because they’re cute and easy to style. Don’t believe me? Just hear me out and keep reading. It all started when Saint Laurent, Miu Miu and Alexandre Vauthier showed us the new and improved versions strutting down the runway. To make them wearable for everyday all you need are these 10 steps:
1. Throw on some tights
The trendsetter, Saint Laurent, proves that this is the perfect combination for a more formal event or holiday gathering.
2. Slip on a statement shoe
Finding a shoe that’s just as voluminous and over-the-top as your dress will balance out the look.
3 .. or a pair of sneakers
Make the trend casual by adding some white sneakers to the puffed dress.
4. Add a belt
Cinch in your waist and create a more defined shape by adding a belt and, voilà, you’ve got a form fitted dress.
5. Your booties are calling
A pair of black slouchy boots makes the girly dress appear very rock ‚n‘ roll.
6. Black with black
Go all black to stay clear of the 80s when it was all about bright colors. A LBD and killer black heels make the perfect option for a night out.
7. Color coordinate
Take a color from your dress and apply it to your shoes for the fashionistas out there.
8. Keep the accessories to the minimum
Big dresses call for small accessories. Balance the dress out by adding some find gold hoops, for example.
9. Try layering
For the daring who want to wear this style in the daytime, try adding some trousers under the dress.
10. Stick with classics
Chill out and grab your trusty black ankle boots and everything will be fine.
So when in doubt, keep everything as simple as possible. Try neutral colors and keep it on the low when it comes to accessories. This way you can't go wrong. Making the 80’s dynasty dresses wearable for everyday will make you feel empowered and super trendy.
