Well, it’s safe to say trends from the 1980s are making their way back around again, so prepare yourself for power suits and double denim. But beyond clothes, accessories are returning too; from fingerless gloves and legwarmers to the most important — statement sunglasses.
What do 80s sunglasses look like?
In the 1980s, fashion trends were inspired heavily by pop culture. Everyone looked to their favourite celebrities from film and music to craft their own lookalike styles. The 80s style was bold, the antithesis of the current minimalistic trends, and an era where the saying “less is more” didn’t resonate. Picture oversized, chunky frames and outlandish colourways. However, the decade still heralded some classic silhouettes such as Wayfarers and Aviators too. Find our top picks below.
