How to Make Normal Clothes Look Like '80s

Ripped Jeans

We have '80s glam metal bands to thank for the effortless, deconstructed look of ripped jeans.

Shoulder Pads

Extreme shoulder pads were worn by women on popular shows like Dynasty—which, by the way, is being rebooted. Sew shoulder pads into blazers and jackets.

Leg Warmers

Leg warmers actually don't feel that retro anymore.

Statement Jewelry

Pile on some bold bangles, oversized earrings in geometric shapes and chunky necklaces.

Bolo Ties

Speaking of accessories, don't be afraid to try out a bolo tie. They can actually look super cute on men or women. Just keep the rest of your outfit simple and classic to balance the look.

Off-the-Shoulder Sweatshirts

Cut the collar off of a sweatshirt and pull it off of one shoulder.


 These loud hues can definitely add an element of fun to a modern wardrobe. If it's your style, go for it!
