From Bowie Inspired Beauty Editorials to Retro Opulence Attire

 - Jun 19, 2013
80s fashion is known for being over the top and larger than life with its iconic shoulder pads, neon colors and perm-ridden hairstyles. In recent years, however, 80s fashion has begun to permeate the mainstream fashion industry. Its classic designs have received modern touches from designers all over the world, bringing retro styles back in a big way.

Everything from backpacks shaped like 80s ghetto blasters to David Bowie-inspired fashion has begun popping up on runways, in department stores and everywhere in between. Women can once again purchase neon-colored body suits from stores like American Apparel, channeling the 80s obsession with aerobics and other dance-heavy workout regimes. Men can also get their 80s on with a mullet hair accessory. This headband actually has a fake mullet attached to it, so when placed around the head it gives the illusion of a real mullet.

Regardless of your 80s obsessions, these 80s fashion stylings are sure to quench the craving for retro accessories, footwear and workout gear.
