Go Big Go Glamour Go 80s

Beatrice Lessi

Thick jewellery, black dresses, golden accessories, studs on clothes and accessories, high heels and full make up in the pool, super feminine and groomed style: the  Versace-inspired 80s glamour is back. For a party but also for everyday, the combination of black and gold is a sure head-turner. Glam up with us and get inspired by some of the bloggers, celebrities and advertising campaigns’ best looks:

1. The Versace “Medusa”

Remember the Medusa symbol? It used to be everywhere and it is back now.

3. Pool Glamour

Let’s say that this trend is more suitable to a pool party than to real swimming time – however, don’t you find it inspiring?

5. Pimped Up Trousers

No minimalism is allowed here: decorations, see-through inserts, figure-hugging styles and, why not, the eternally attention-grabbing high heels.

6.The Moschino Way

Bold prints, ironic words or cartoons, Barbie looks and even plainly fake imitations of other brands are the staples of the Moschino style.

7.Accessories

The safety-pin Liz Hurley wore on the famous Versace dress that gave her fame launched a big trend. Safety pins, hearts, Swarowsky crystals, flags and peace signs also were part of any accessory. A fun trend we still love.
