‘Play It Cool in ’80s-Inspired Styles’

Not sure I ever wanted to see a return of ’80s fashion, but WSJ. Magazine makes a good argument for some styles in this story from the February issue. On newsstands January 27.

  • I agree about the 80s as a fashion decade. Absolutely love 80s music though.

    I do like the pleated pants in a soft, unstructured fabric. I don’t have the height to carry them off, but I really like the look on those who can.

  • April is right – the best thing about the 80’s was the music. That being said both my daughters just bought Members Only jackets from Nordstrom – and all their friends love them. Stranger Things has resurrected so much 80’s nostalgia -it’s hysterical!

  • Agree about the 80’s with two exceptions: Harriet Selwyn Peck (later Selwyn Peck) created lovely separates for late day and evening in the 80’s, which to this day I occasionally pull out. I also loved Linda Evangelista’s hair!

  • I do like this dress-a tad 60’s cross over- but I like the mood the photo captures

  • Oversized blazers and high waisted, pleated pants have eternal appeal. Long live the 80s.
