Spring LookBook 2017 - The 80s trend - London Local Designers

Hello! Shoshy from Shoshy Cadoodle® here, bringing you this 2017 Spring Lookbook trend guide for Spring 2017

This Spring, 2017, the eighties are back! Big name brands such as Marc Jacobs, Isabel Marant, Saint Laurent and Topshop have taken the 80s and brought them back to catwalks in Paris, New York and London.

Let's be real though. When we think of the 80s, most of us mere mortals think of it as a look best saved for our next fancy dress party. Interpreting catwalk shows and crazy trends doesn't need to be that dramatic or halloween-type-of-scary though. I'm here to walk you through how you can take the best bits from the eighties and update your style to be right on trend. Don't worry, I'm not going to let you go overboard and drown in a sea of glitter, shoulder pads and leg warmers. I've got your back.

TOP TIP: Keep it simple with the 80s, and categorise them into 3 key trends: metallics, pops of bright colour and geometric motifs

Metallics

Integrate the metallic, high shine fabric style elements of the 80s, seen all over the catwalks, with this understated glam clutch by Suede & Co. The rose gold brings this accessory right up to date.

Fluro Colour

Take some colour inspo from the 80s in the form of this necklace by Kodes Accessories. The bright hot fluro pink teamed with black hints at an 80s palette, while the white marble and muted grey makes certain that this design has been modernised for 2017.

Geometric Motifs

Afraid of colour? Channel this trend with these monochrome earrings by Esoteric London, instead, for a new take on some classic 80s motifs.
