Evening my lovely lovely friends!
To give you the low-down, I was having an absolute crisis in attempting to find something I owned that was remotely 70's. So I ditched the 70's with no regrets and got myself wrapped up in the 80's! Enjoy x
So, this outfit kind of brings in different aspects of the 80's. Lycra dancewear and leg warmers were unbelievably cool during the 80's, which was my inspiration for the Tshirt crop top in polka dot. This is from New Look and I must admit I do not actually own this, it belongs to my sister. Personally, I find cropped tops so uncomfortable and unsettling - and if I do decide to show off a little tummy, I 100% go for a baggy top - not sure why I just feel much more confident wearing that, and comfort is the most important thing! BUT in the 80's, the tighter and brighter the better! I paired this top with some jeans which are also from New Look. I purchased these rather recently and they are part of their A/W15 range. They are incredibly comfortable and also particularly stretchy so they are very figure hugging - totally appropriate for the 80's. I also decided to wear converse. Converse are the ultimate 80's shoe, alongside a large range of other trainer/ pump shoes and of course STILETTOS! These are also leather, which was popular at the time! Lastly, I picked up this khaki bomber jacket from The Kilo Sale whilst in Leeds last weekend. Again, it's vintage so is perfect for an 80's recreation and despite the fact it is huge and puffy making me feeling like the Michelin man, it is incredibly warm and I will definitely be popping this on when it's freezing outside because... Well because I can. In terms of bomber jackets, they are sold in most high street stores, but if you can grab hold of an old one, even better! Asos particularly have a fantastic range of bomber jackets I have noticed!
Anyway, I'll love ya and leave ya! X
