80s Glam

30 July 2015

As a vintage lover I embrace every decade, and one of them are the 80s. 80s fashion impresses me because it´s so over the top, full of glitz and glam - Big crimped hair, gold accessories and skaterdresses.  In the 80s people were not scared of velvet, satin and pretty much everything that looks a bit tacky. However, one difficulty about the 80s is obviously all the awkward shapes. Although I do like it, I always wonder why a whole generation thought that shoulder pads, huge balloon sleeves and these jeans that make your bum and tights look giant would do them any good. I was even a bit shocked when looking at these photos until I remembered that these pants don´t really flatter anybody’s body type too much. Although the 80s offer a lot of fun crazy girly fashion I tried to go for something a bit more glam and grown up. I found these trousers and they reminded of 80s Vogue and it was no question that they had to be worn with my iconic Moschino belt. Usually I would have worn this with my black velvet shoulder padded 80s jacket which I sadly left at home. However, I had fun on my little Fashion travel to the 80s. What do you think about the 80s? yay or nay?

Als ein Vintage Liebhaber verehre ich wirklich Dekaden, sogar die 80er. Die Mode der 80er beeindruckt mich einfach weil sie so übertrieben ist, voll Glitzer und Glamour – Voluminöse gekreppte Haare, Gold Accessoires und Skaterdresses. In den 80ern hatten die Leute keine Angst vor Samt, Satin und so ziemlich Allem was im schlimmsten Fall ein bisschen billig aussehen kann. Wie auch immer, ein Problem mit den 80ern sind natürlich die schwierigen Formen und Schnitte. Obwohl ich sie total mag, frag ich mich immer warum eine ganze Generation davon ausging das Schulterpolster, große Ballon Ärmel und diese Jeans in denen dein Po und deine Schenkel gigantisch aussehen irgendwas für sie tun würden. Ich war sogar ein kleines bisschen geschockt als ich mir die Photos angeschaut hab bis mir wieder eingefallen ist, dass die Hosen eigentlich an niemandem besonders schmeichelhaft aussehen. Obwohl die 80er natürlich richtig viel bieten an aufregender, verrückter Mädchen Mode, wollte ich etwas Glamouröseres und Erwachseneres ausprobieren. Als ich diese Hosen gefunden habe dachte ich direkt an 80s Vogue und es war keine Frage dass ich sie mit meinem ikonischen Moschino Gürtel tragen muss. Normal hätte ich sie lieber mit meiner 80er Samtjacke mit Goldknöpfen und Schulterpolstern getragen aber leider hab ich die nicht hier. Wie auch immer, ich hatte jede Menge Spaß an meiner kleinen Fashion Reise in die 80er. Wie findet ihr 80er Mode? Yay or nay?

  9. Love this! Especially your use of jewelry here. Yeah, I love all decades too and aspects of the 80s are great. But like you, I could do without the unflattering clothes. I'm somewhat surprised they came back too. XO

  10. You look so sassy in this outfit :D nice!

    I guess it's just that there has always been and will always be ugly people who can't really dress up and make the older fashion styles look bad. But glad there's always some people with great sense of style :) I really like the crazy 80s!

  11. Absolutely YAY! Someone here nailed it ;) 80iger Looks machen einfach Spaß, auch wenn manches schräg war, diesen Mut zum Auffallen muss man heute erstmal bringen. xo
