I’m taking a break from my Southern Charm marathon, on this blistering hot Sunday evening, to bring you a little 80’s Summer Style.
Like it or not, designers have been taking serious inspiration from the 80’s left and right this season. & I’ve taken a Carrie Bradshaw approach to it all, and have been open to new things.
Either I’m walking down the ruffle filled aisle of J.Crew, scrunchie shopping at Urban Outfitters or trying on shoulder padded dresses from Anthro; I think the 80’s are making a slight comeback this summer. Has anyone else noticed this yet?
At first, when I tried on this dress, I was like nah, meh, shoulder pads/ruffles?; but I was shocked how much Matt loved it! He thought it was a perfect day to night item; which it actually is.
You guys, it gets wayyyy to hot here in Dallas; so I’ve basically hidden all my shorts and pants and converted my wardrobe to dresses and skirts, for good.The less clingy the clothes the better! & it can be hard to find a dress that is dressier than a day dress but not too dressy that I feel like I’m going to an interview.
It seems simple, right, but the perfect storm can be hard, we can’t put too much pressure on a dress guys, so when I found this number, I whipped out my Anthropologie gift card.
I promise to keep this post short and sweet while sharing more business casual looks, like you all requested!
So basically, what are your thoughts on 80’s comeback style? I think I’m down for the ruffles and maybe a shoulder padded dress here or there, but not totally feeling the scrunchies (blah).
