This week’s Through the Decades post features a look that was inspired by the 80’s. I didn’t want to do the cheezy, neon, stereotypical 80’s look. I chose to dig deep, and go with animal print and chunky jewelry to create my 80’s inspired look. What I love about the 80’s was the rampant need and desire to be a rebel. The fashion really expressed that intense need. At that time, wearing bold lip colors, animal print, chunky jewelry and more was taking risks. Do you remember the dangly cross earring that men used to wear on one ear?
Take Madonna for example, her style was so out there compared to any previous decade, she started a ton of trends. I love that we’ve continued to carry bits and pieces from each decade in our ever evolving idea of fashion while we create new and different pieces. Each decade really adds a different feel to what we wear now, and how we, as a society, conceptualize fashion as a whole.
