We're on a high for all things retro. In fact, we’re always in the mood for even more color, print and volume in our wardrobe. We're taking cues from the decadent '70s and fun '80s, where nights were longer, parties were wilder, and style was bolder.
In that spirit, we rounded up colorful pieces that are reminiscent of the yesteryears. Shop and wear these on your next fun night out!
1. Bright bodysuit
Bright colors are less intimidating when they come in a classic cut like this. A bodysuit can take you anywhere from a chill round of margaritas with the girls to a dressy hotel bar for cool cocktails. Just pair it with denim shorts for the former, or structured pair of trousers for the latter. It’s easy, versatile, and fun!
2. Ruffled dress
Flounce and flair were a thing back in the '80s and we're certainly not going to dismiss that just yet. Floral dresses are much more beloved now when they come with billowy sleeves and ruffles. The possibilities for this dress is endless! Pair it with a blazer to tone it down or you can wear itwith sneakers to make it look more laidback.
3. Leopard print
Leopard prints may have had a tacky rep looking back, but it seems like the joke's on us right now! This print is back and we honestly can't get enough of it! It's a cool add on to bring your plain pieces come to life.
4. Ruched Skirt
The '80s used to considered as bad decade for fashion, but we’re definitely warming up to it now. We're steadily infusing that decade's vivacious spirit into our own wardrobe. If you're like us, then consider getting this pink, ruched, polka-dot mini skirt that is just made to party. Wear it with a black mock-neck shirt, your favorite pair of sneakers, big earrings, and a good time is definitely guaranteed!
5. Flared Trouser
Step into the groovy decade with this colored flared trouser that's especially made for you to wear from desk to dawn. Pair with a flowy and flirty pussybow blouse and boogie the night away!
6. Leather Mini-Skirt
Of course we're not forgetting the grunge years back in the '90s. But we're giving this tough decade a colorful spin. Faux leather skirts in bright hues will give your 'fits the right amount of edge and fun, for sure!
7. Power Suit Set
Power suits were quite the statement back when it was controversial for women to be in pants. But thanks to designers like Yves Saint Laurent, women started donning suit sets that made both a political and a fashion statement. For our wardrobes today, a blazer-and-pant combo is always what we reach for whenever we need something that goes from the weekday to the weekend in a snap.
8. Blazer dress
If you're not a fan of pants, then may we suggest an alternative: blazer dresses! Get the same authoritative look of this structure piece with a more feminine twist. Your best bet is this powder pink piece that makes it fun enough to wear to your after work plans!
