Right now, it's all about the 80s; on the telly (hello, Stranger Things) and in your wardrobe. With no signs of slowing down, your next obsession is the monochrome polka-dot puffball skirt. Ready to revolutionise your weekend with retro flair – here’s three ways to style it.

Dinner date

So you’ve got a fancy PM occasion coming up? Let your style pin-up be Princess Diana with this dreamy spots-on-spots monochrome look. The polka overload works here because the top breaks up the print with contrasting giant Minnie Mouse-esque dots and a plunging neckline. Pointed slingbacks add a ladylike step and statement earrings and a bold grab-handle clutch nail that 80s glam.

Weekend chill

Ultimate proof that the 80s can make the slick transition to your everyday wardrobe. This street-style cool get-up brings major layering credentials to your weekend strolls. A lace-up top poking out from underneath a plain grey jersey sweat adds laid-back texture and an oversized aviator coat with a fluffy borg double collar means you’ll be breezing the colder weather, no probs. The puffball hem breaks up the silhouette with a girly twist and glittery socks plus metallic sneaks give a fun finish.

Going out-out

And it’s only right that you take the puffball back to its motherland: the dance floor, obviously. For a modern update on the 80s night-out look, pare down the retro with AW17's printed half zip knit. Add glittery heeled sandals to amp up the party vibes and a neon yellow faux-fur scarf thrown over one shoulder to give that stare-worthy flash of 80s bright.
