SS17 trend: Eighties Fever

Hello! I've decided to do trend posts, featuring a wish list of my favourite high street pieces that have been inspired by the catwalk. And I'm starting with the Eighties because how beaut were the Eighties inspired pieces?! I am loving the metallics, minis and fringed leather jackets.

While this trend could be a massive leap out of your comfort zone after the minimalistic trends of the past few seasons (/years) I think it's about time we all went a little bit extra with our evening wear (and yes, I am drawing the line at evening wear, because as much as I love this trend, I'm probs not going to step out in a sequinned mini dress or gold trousers during the day).

As well as sequinned minidresses, high shine materials, one-shouldered or off the shoulder styles, puff-sleeved detailing and OTT fringing as seen above, there was an abundance of stilettos, larger-than-life earrings (which I personally am not finding appealing atm because I'm stuck in my 'tiny ring and stud from Urban Outfitters' ways, which you can kind of see here), ruffles and bold colours (see below for a hot pink blazer).

My main NEED piece from this trend is the leather jacket. The one below is from Topshop, but you can get similar versions from Etsy for around £30-£100. As much as I love my All Saints Balfern leather biker jacket, I think one of these styles would be a great investment to mix it up from time to time, as I am a leather jacket addict and wear them farrr too much.
