Eighties fashion may be OTT, outrageous, and sometimes crazy, but you'd be surprised that a lot of your current closet staples started in this decade! From classic penny loafers to Michael Jackson-inspired shoulder pads, find out the rad '80s trends you can still rock now without looking like a total blast from the past.

Shoulder pads

Shoulder pads may be a thing of the past, but if you want to create an illusion of broad shoulders, or create a structured look, throw in some shoulder pads into the style equation and you're good to go.

Sweaters around your neck

Inject some preppy sass into your look by tying a sweater around your neck!

Heirloom style earrings

Huge earrings were a huge craze in the '80s. Make this trend modern and classy by opting for a pair of heirloom style earrings instead.

Mini Skirt

Whether you choose a denim version or a skater skirt style, mini skirts are cute, versatile, and fashionable, too!

Ripped Jeans

In the '80s, girls go all out edgy with their ripped jeans. Take a different route and pair your rugged ripped jeans with a feminine top for a more sophisticated OOTD.

Loafers

While the '80s had a lot of crazy fashion trends going on, it also introduced a classic pair of footwear that is chic, timeless, and versatile, too! Wear your preppy loafers with another eighties trend, the ripped jeans for a cute outfit for the day.

Joggers

We call them joggers now, but in the '80s, these bottoms were known as the Z. Cavaricci. These days, joggers are also sleeker and more sophisticated. You can wear it to school, to your internship, or even to a hangout, you name it!

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
