The biggest theme for 2017 has revolved around flashbacks from the ‘80s. The style forecast has called for year-round ruffles, flashy metallics, OTT earrings and more, and it’s not just fashion that’s stuck in this ‘80s mood either. With synth-heavy tunes taking us back to the future and ‘80s-themed shows like Stranger Things and Dynasty queued in our Netflix list, we just can’t escape it, so we may as well embrace it.

Now we don’t want to make the same style mistakes our mothers made, so here are our top 5 party looks that will look totally tubular, time after time.

Now we don’t want to make the same style mistakes our mothers made, so here are our top 5 party looks that will look totally tubular, time after time.

Rebecca Vallance Cortona Midi Dress

Taking a different approach to the big shoulder trend, the Rebecca Vallance Cortona Midi Dress will have you looking pretty in pink. We’re wearing ours with big-impact earrings and socks paired with pointed pumps.

Maison Scotch French T-Shirt and Romance Was Born Classic Bloom Lace Skirt

Go for bold colour with this printed tee and skirt combo. We’re wearing ours with pink ruffle heels by Nude Footwear and our favourite statement-making earrings.

Nicola Finetti Bridget Dress

Off-the-shoulder, statement sleeves, and a skirt split trimmed with ruffles – this Nicoletta Finetti dress ticks off all the 80’s trends. We’re going all out with flashy metallic mules – worn with socks of course.

Romance Was Born Tender Blossom Dress

Channel prom queen wearing the Romance Was Born Tender Blossom Dress. We’re clearly loving the socks and sandals look right now, and oversized earrings too.

MAX&Co. Parola Blouse and Cottage Skirt (sold out)

Rick Springfield wished he had Jessie’s girl as much as we wish we still had the MAX&Co. Cottage Skirt featured, but due to popularity it has sold out. Instead, we’ll be rocking this look with the Cammeo Skirt, which is like, just as 80’s…

If you’re still not feeling this ‘80s vibe, don’t motor, we’ve got party looks for all kinds of moods.
