These 80s fall fashion examples look to the past for their visual inspiration and embrace exaggerated silhouettes and vibrant color combinations. Whether showcasing an array of patterned fabrics or playing with shoulder proportions, these menswear and womenswear features are the opposite of understated.

The picks include street style editorials that revive 80s business attire and catalogs that are color-drenched and nostalgic. The features highlight statement sweaters that are adorned with Rainbow-Brite inspired motifs along with more solid and sophisticated coats that are architectural in their silhouette.

Exaggerated proportions are in fashion once again and now is the perfect time to try one of these 80s fall fashions. If you're scared of experimenting with shapes, infuse your wardrobe with a much needed dose of color and go the print route instead.
