The Sexy, Hip, Funky, Feminine, Gorgeous 1980's!
Posted on June 10 2016
The 1980's might be the most polarizing decade ever when it comes to style. With a go big or go home attitude, it was all about big shoulder pads, even bigger hair, scrunchies (!!!), neon and fun! Here are some of our favorite 80's style icons, as well we some items from our online store so you can get an updated look inspired by this wild decade.
SEXY: JANE FONDA
Fame runs in Jane Fonda's family, but she's definitely a star in her own right. The first celebrity to have a workout video, Jane pretty much epitomized aerobic style (I know I rocked some leg warmers in the 80's) and made being fit fashionable. All those aerobics paid off because she still looks amazing!

HIP: THE BANGLES
While there were many, The Bangles are THE girl group of the 80's. They sang, they played their own instruments, and they wrote some of the most memorable songs of the decade. All while looking absolutely fabulous in perfectly trendy 1980's style.

It's almost impossible to think of the 1980's and NOT think of Madonna! Like a Virgin, Like a Prayer, Material Girl, Papa Don't Preach...the list of hits goes on and on! A tough girl with a heart, Madonna has always had a less is more approach to her clothing, and a more is more approach to her accessories. We love it!

FEMININE: MOLLY RINGWALD
Molly Ringwald was the most popular unpopular girl of the 1980's. The quintessential girl next door and Queen of the Brat Pack had some of the most iconic looks of the decade. Who could forget her homemade cold-shoulder prom dress from Pretty in Pink? Her look was feminine with just a little bit of tomboy thrown in. Perfect 80's style. No wonder Jake Ryan fell for her!

GORGEOUS: BROOKE SHIELDS
In the decade that coined the term "supermodel", Brooke Shields was among the best of the best. Perfect bone structure, amazing hair, flawless style and a body to die for. Don't you just hate her? (JK, that's why we LOVE her!) Anyone who has seen "The Blue Lagoon" knows exactly why Brooke is on our list.
