80's trend


A/W15, AccessorisingEmma CarrComment

Next up on my AW15 Accessories Edit is the 80’s. Now this isn’t necessarily a decade everyone wants to wear head-to-toe, but with the right accessory you can easily pull it off 2015 style. From polka dots to fishnets, sheer tights are back and a great way to add an 80’s vibe to your outfit. Oversized 80’s-insprired belts and statement earrings are also everywhere this autumn/winter. Alternatively add a pair of metallic stilettos or clutch and you’re sure to bring some 80’s sparkle to whatever you’re wearing.

A/W15, Wardrobe staplesEmma CarrComment

With the Seventies, Eighties and Victorian gothic set to be big for A/W15 the blouse is making a comeback. So what should you be looking for? If you want to go all Seventies look for silk pussy-bow blouses as seen at Gucci, or if you want to add a bit of Eighties into your wardrobe look for rounded, tied or high-necked collars, think Krystal Carrington in Dynasty. Finally, if you fancy going all Victorian goth then look for high-necked ruffled collars, gathered cuffs and lace. So how to wear it? Layer underneath a dress or jumper, or simply worn on it’s own with a great pair of jeans, whichever way you choose it will instantly update your look.
