1980s fashion had heavy emphasis on expensive clothes and fashion accessories. Apparel tended to be very bright and vivid in appearance. Women expressed an image of wealth and success through shiny costume jewelry, such as large faux-gold earrings, pearl necklaces, and clothing covered with sequins and diamonds.
Hair in the 1980s was typically big, curly, bouffant and heavily styled. Women from the 1980s wore bright, heavy makeup. Everyday fashion in the '80s consisted of light-colored lips, dark and thick eyelashes, and pink or red rouge (otherwise known as blush). Some of the top fashion Trends of the 1980s were minimalism, power dressing, Aerobics craze, bright colors and romanticism.
Women's fashion in the mid-1980s became more colorful around 1984. Here are the new color palettes that are fresh this month.
Experimenting with bright colours can be a little daunting, making us stick to the usual grey-and-navy and camel-and-black combos. If you aim to wear more colour in 2017, there are a number of colour combinations that you might not have thought of that can look fresh and unexpected, and are bound to brighten your mood too.
Hot Pink and purple
Fuchsia and bright purple is a colour combination we would normally avoid (far too garish), but it can look seriously striking and is an excellent way to tap into the '80s trend. For those who love wearing colours, add a splash of aqua to the mix too.
Blue and Scarlet
At Céline, models wore two shades of blue with pops of bright red—even just a scarlet sock would do. So you can start small. This is a colour mash-up we want to copy straight away.
The fitness craze of the 1970s continued into the early 1980s. General women's street-wear worn in the early 1980s included ripped jeans, leotards, tights, sweatpants, and tracksuits.
And so has the time come to repeat the history again. This month is all about preppy, hip-hop, street wear and normcore.

For a casual-but-smart everyday look, give your pleated skirt an edge with a classic pair of Stan Smith trainers. We defy you not to fall in love with this outfit.
New Romantic was a new wave and fashion movement influenced by punk attire that occurred primarily in British and Irish nightclubs as a backlash to council estates during the early and mid 1980s.
