80s fashion makes another comeback

80s fashion trends make a comeback

THIS IS AN EMERGENCY: Can all Fashion Police units please report to Miss Selfridge, where the 1980s appear to have exploded all over the place…

Of course, those of who missed out on the 80s the first time around are now lining up to tell us that you love 80s fashion SOSOMUCH, because it is, like, SOCOOL, and God, you wish you could go back in time and live in 1985!

The rest of you meanwhile, are just cringing in horror and saying, “Seriously, AGAIN? Must we? With the acid wash and the crop tops and the Kylie-and-Jason and the really bad hair? Can we just drink bleach or something instead?”

To those people, we are the bearers of bad news: 80s fashion is making a comeback. Yes, another one. Because apparently the other 5 80s comebacks we’ve endured in the past ten years or so just weren’t enough for some people, GOD.

Although it feels a little bit like we actually DO still live in the 80s sometimes (you got your wish, kids! And now you’re about to find out the meaning of the phrase “Be careful what you wish for.”), the influx of 80s-influenced clothes is particularly cold over at Miss Selfridge, which is where you’ll find all of the items in the image above. (Well, with the exception of the mix tape: you’ll have to make that for yourselves…) What do you think about going through the 80s yet again, though? Are you SO! EXCITED! by the sight of acid wash denim and neon crop tops, or will you be needing the number for our eyeball bleach supplier? Because we have him on speed dial right now…

    I was a teen in the 80s and see no reason to relive those ‘glory’ days of side pony tails and baggy, long t-shirts knotted on the side.

    I do, however, covet the unitard in the picture above. Apparently some things cannot be fixed by time or will power. 🙂

    A bunch of yuppies are ruining everyone’s good time. Of course it’s the 80s.

    I wish the acid wash pants to remain on the 80’s… the neon top can stay on the present but still needs somebody who knows what they are doing when they were it.
    By the way the link to the 80’s guide sends me to the 90’s guide XD

    Why can’t we ever resurrect a nice decade? The 40s? The 50s? The 20s, even?

    The majority of 80s fashion can commence the kissing of mine arse, but you will pry my Queen concert t-shirt (that alas predates me by about a year, the show was in ’81) and my “Frankie says RELAX” t-shirt from my cold dead clutches.

    As far as I’m concerned I’m the only good thing made in the 80’s 🙂 (born early in 1990). All the clothes from that decade can be hidden far far far away at, I dunno, the bottom of the sea. Together with the hair from the 80’s thanks. And Meatloaf. And David Hasslehoff. I can go on.
