  • I styled 3 outfits inspired by the popular fashions of thirty years ago! From the hair metal rockers and groupies, to blazer-clad working ladies and teen pop idols decked out in acid wash jeans, I had a great time pretending it was 1987 and exploring fashion history through one of the most iconic decades - the 80s. Let me know what you think of my ~lookbook~ and if you want to see more of these!

    A huge thanks to Kayley Melissa for rocking out this 80s hair! You can check out her channel here: https://cnclips.net/user/LetsMakeitUp1

    I was born in 1969 and so the 80's were definitely my era (and we had the best music EVER) TBH I loved the 80's. In the early 80's in the UK it was defo the New Romantic era where everything was frills and black and white, mid 80's you got a bit more colour and the late 80's more colour BUT TBH throughout the 80's anything and everything was cool.
