This trend has to be treated with respect - for some of us, we remember the 80's well and sometimes we need to leave this trend back in the 80s. If your thinking you can just pull out those old fluro prints and baggy jeans and rock them...beaware that you can easliy not look trendy but look as if your style has not changed since you were a teenager!
Denim is so big right now. Ribcage-high mum jeans, distressed & bleached styles are all here. But be careful if you have a fuller hip, bottom area that you are going to make your derriere look as if it goes all the up to your shoulder blades by wearing a high cut, pleated baggy jean.
You are better off wearing a lower cut jean that will half your butt and tummy and then wear a funky 80s inspired top and an oversized , shoulder padded blazer!
When you get to a particular age you need to go for less is more with the 80s. It was all very loud and in your face and can easily look trashy. Be careful of the ripped jeans as these can look as if your a bag lady rather than a cool sassy with it chick. If you must wear these then wear them with a few, very slight rips on the lower part of your leg with a casual sneaker.
