The ’80s are back with a vengeance. How do you feel about grunge and acid brights?
To fully serve the ’80s trend, we’ll need to be committed or not bother at all.
Madonna did it in grunge, Cyndi Lauper blinded us in acid brights while Wham! kept it crisp and clean in Club Tropicana. We’ll leave Boy George out of the equation for now as his incredible style needs its own Wikipedia page.
If you’re keen to rejoin the ’80s fashion revolution, here are a few starter points to get you onto memory lane without looking like you’re off to a fancy-dress party:
