80’s were defined by the unique blend of different styles, especially the over –the-top clothing in bold colors and patterns. Everything in the 80’s had to be big, bold and loud. So any outfit that includes bright color contrast, extravagant designs with shoulder pads or puff sleeves will nail the look.
The old school fashion fascinates me. It helps us reconnect with a past which was not nearly as complicated. I feel it’s amazing the way these designs can be showy and casual at the same time. The classic cut and design of many retro style dresses makes them very easy to wear as well.
I am a huge fan of belts. A belt is an easy, versatile way to really make your outfits look unique and interesting. A wide belt is one of the most flattering and eye-catching accessories when paired with the right outfit, especially worn with a poodle or swing skirt. Keep in mind that wide belts won’t work with every outfit, but if paired well they look awesome.
Here I went for Unique Vintage cocktail polka dotted dress with poodle skirt and fitted bodices. I had accessorized it with a wide buckle waist belt, which looks absolutely perfect for hopping across the dance floor.
