Chapter 7


Karrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha
(Sex And The City)
The most characteristic looks of the 80's

The 80's is the decade of exaggeration. The shoulders are becoming wider, the waddings are dominate and the series "Dynasty" makes Alexa Colby a fashion icon. The gymnastics is in fashion and sporty look is becoming the new trend. The Jeans pants are the must-have piece of a wardrobe and the "logos" dominate everywhere. This decade is the best season for super-models and consumerism. Women are becoming independent and earn their own money by having career jobs.  Lacroix brings in fashion the Baroque, Alaia makes famous the sweaters which embrace the female body, Donna Karan uses the stretch in tights, while Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin dominate in footwear-world.

Lambada skirts, mini skirts, leggings, huge baggy T-shirts, faded jeans, ripped jeans, jeans jacket, huge baggy jackets, tops and dresses with the one shoulder out, wide pants, tracksuits and sports bodysuits. 

Gaiters, gloves with figures-cut, lace gloves, bows in the hair, colorfull sun-glasses, huge belts, plastic bracelets, long necklaces, colorful tights. Favorite sports' shoes are Reebok, Nike, L.A Gear and Keds. 

MAKE-UP. The eyebrows are natural and thick, the face looks freshly and healthy with a rouge and the powder which gives the impression of sunburned skin. The lips are in red color.

HAIR. The hair is bushy while the bangs hide the face. The use of hairspray is becoming the daily routine.

Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino, Katherine Hamnet, Christian Lacroix, Azzedine Alaia, Romeo Gigli, Rei Kawakubo, Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto, Donna Karan, Gianni Versace, Norma Kamali, Giorgio Armani, Gianfranco Ferré, Calvin Klein, Βασίλειος Κωστέτσος, Νικόλας Μαυρόπουλος, Τίμης Παρίσης.

I adore the 80's. For Madonna look and mostly for the music. I mean, Duran Duran were singing Girls on Films at that time...
Best regards

Not really of my style, but 80's are a constant inspiration.
It was such a unique decade with great music and fashion icons.

Have an awesome day.

Totally agree with Monica, the fashion from the 80s was not the best but the models were epic. It was the vixen era when models still had boobs, healthy bodies, and sex appeal.
