Shoulder bags, Cosby sweaters, neon galore…we’ve officially returned to the 1980s. And though I’ll seriously move to an underground bomb shelter if ye olde stirrup pants and parachute pants of yore make a comeback, these retro looks aren’t all bad. Check out these fab picks.
Marc Jacobs O.O.C. Glitter Studs Mini: Tell me this doesn’t have “Jem!” written all over it. I love the feisty fuchsia hue, and the metallic is pure party. Available for $995 at Eluxury.com.
Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse Shawl: Is there anything more ’80s than a Sprouse reference? Of course, a Sprouse-inspired handbag is divine, but I’ve also taken a cotton (er, make that cashmere) to this leopard-print shawl. Available for $725 at Eluxury.com.
Jimmy Choo Zulu Soft Clutch: Net-a-Porter has singled this studded clutch as a sign of the New ’80s, and I couldn’t agree more. Very “White Wedding.” Available for $625 at Net-a-Porter.com.
Alexander Wang Denim Leather Hobo Bag: A little Dexy’s Midnight Runners, a little Erin Wasson, a lot downtown girl cool. The “it” designer has created a funky little purse for aspiring blue jean baby queens, all with cleverly distressed leather. Available for $825 at Shopbop.com.
Rebecca Minkoff Neon Rendezvous Clutch: This Day-Glo clutch was made for hitting the clubs…or a Wham! concert. Available for $275 at Shopbop.com.posted: March 4th, 2009
