The return of the eighties, the fashion codes from the colors to the broad shoulders

It’s time again for high-waisted trousers, midi skirts, animalier and vinyl


The fashion of the eighties characterized by lace, bustier, spotted, shoulder and oversized jackets back in all its splendor to renew the wardrobe of Autumn / Winter 2018.

But as for the silhouettes, next season will be marked by high-waisted and wide pants (Etro, Roberto Cavalli, Salvatore Ferragamo), midi leather skirts (Alberta Ferretti).

In addition, everything will light up with neon colors, and sequins and vinyl will bring a new glamor.

The proposals of the fashion shows have announced a style with a strong character. We saw it from Versus-Versace, in Alberta Ferretti’s sequined jackets and trousers, in Paco Rabanne’s gold viscose jersey leggings, in the new Prada bags in nylon padded with fluorescent colors like fuchsia.

Many brands have drawn from the eighties to renew the offer: from Elisabetta Franchi to Tod’s up to N° 21.

After all, the eighties never go out of fashion for different reasons: that marked and showy effect, unleashes memories of discos and entertainment and combines aesthetics with functionality.

With the oversize volumes of the eighties you can hide everything you do not want to show, like those hated extra pounds, or add in the right places the shapes you’ve always missed.

Thus, if the trousers become wider trousers on the hips and legs, the skirts are strengthened in straight forms to the knee or widen the wheel effect.

So go free to the palazzo pants and oversized sizes of the male models.

And if the message were not clear, leggings will leave room for exaggerated volumes that will not leave out the shapes of coats and jackets. Finally, the color palette suggests bright, vitamin-like tones such as yellow, red, orange and blue.

The leather prefers the mat tones of powder pink, pomace and dark chocolate.

Another trend that has changed since the eighties is glossy vinyl, modern in coffee-beige, burgundy or black.

The animal print (Max Mara) in the macro or micro version is the other big trend of the eighties season.
