Stranger Things, a reboot of Dynasty, and other pop-culture moments have contributed to fashion’s renewed interest in 1980s trends. While most fashionados know that the 80s were a rather disastrous decade when it came to style, we’re also quick to acknowledge that the Era of Excess did contain some diamond-in-the-rough fashion moments. Thankfully, items like cone bras, slap bracelets, and JNCOs remain relics of the past – but be warned that boxy silk blouses, glitter jumpsuits, metallic lamé dresses, pinstriped suiting, and sequined bomber jackets have conspired to bring back the 1980s with a vengeance.

Recent runway shows and celebrity red-carpet appearances have also indicated the return of puffy jackets, exaggerated crystal earrings, color-blocked spandex, and more. Browse some of the better fashion moments inspired by the 80s in Savoir Flair’s style gallery below, then compare the revamped versions coming out for 2017 in the shopping guide that follows.
