The Surprising Retro Trend That’s Making A Comeback

Share

The ’80s were brimming with over-the-top trends, many of which left us scratching our heads in confusion. (Case in point: metallic parachute pants and candy-colored scrunchies.) So you can imagine our surprise when we noticed one of the decade’s most prominent pieces—the voluminous-sleeve top—making its way back into fashion’s favor. While Working Girl versions pumped up volume in the shoulders, modern iterations shift it toward the bottom of the sleeve. Rendered in a sleeker profile and luxe fabrics, the once dated silhouette is transformed into something elevated and newly chic. We suggest styling with distressed denim and pointed-toe pumps for a polished-cool vibe. Shop our favorite picks under $150 ahead and join the revival.
