It’s happened. The 80s have come back (to the future), but this time with max cool and none of cringe. Think lush jewel-tones, spaceman metallics and festival-friendly clashing prints. Best part? Not a mullet in sight. See how these five #AsSeenOnMe babes are getting into the groove…
ASOM STYLE STEALS
Do the 80s without looking OTT

So the shell suit might have made a permanent exit (hallelujah), but it doesn’t mean that your chill-out gear can’t channel those bold retro vibes. Steal all the stares with a drawstring tracksuit sweat with matching tapered bottoms. Top tip: jewel tones are hotness.
The 80s revival means that your dressy day time getups just got a hell of a lot more extra. Take tips from ASOS Insider Debbie and balance out the retro by pairing a bold peplum top (bonus points for shoulder pads) with straight-leg denim and some fancy caged heels.
Fancy adding just a small suggestion of the all-time-glitziest-decade to your look? Look for megawatt ear bling with massive retro vibes. Make it granny-chic meets dancefloor diva like ASOS Insider Lotte has with these chintzy chandelier pearl earrings. Extra points if you pair with a relaxed salmon-pink top (so Lady Di on a day off).

Who said disco was dead? Metallics can be very right for your weekend wardrobe, but it’s all about limiting it to short bursts. Start with plain staples: think all-black everything kick-flare jeans with a tee and ankle boots and then bring the party with a sassy ruffle lamé cami. So good.
Bring Studio 54 to your weekend wardrobe with a metallic pleated skirt in jazzy-fresh fuchsia. Keep it street-friendly by toning down the glare with a grey jersey long-sleeve top, plus some plain sliders.
