It's become the norm for decades and their distinctive trends to come back in style for a few seasons before style setters move on to the next. For S/S 17, it's clear that the reign of the '80s revival has begun. Major fashion houses like Gucci, Chanel, Balenciaga, and Saint Laurent featured shoulder pads, neon colors, puffy sleeves, logos, and miniskirts in their collections, recalling the glamour of Dynasty and Heathers.
Whether you're ready for the polarizing trends of the decade to return or not, it's already becoming clear that you'll have trouble escaping the '80s this year. One fast-fashion retailer we noticed already fully embracing the trend is Topshop. Neon colors, acid-wash jeans, funnel-neck collars, and even scrunchies are among the seller's new arrivals. Given the fact that the brand fully embraced the '70s and '90s trends that cropped up over the past several years, we fully expect that it'll continue to offer up wallet-friendly '80s-inspired options until the trend has run its course.
