'80s Redux

A quick rewind to the eighties in this ruffled striped shirt and high-waisted mom jean look.
If there's one thing I love about fashion, it's the constant cycle of trends. I mean, who could forget that gorgeous Louis Vuitton Spring 2013 1960's revival featuring bright yellow check pencil skirts and mod shift dresses? Or the seventies style boho maxis and patchwork ponchos from the Chloé Fall 2015 runway?

Although brands showcase innovative designs each season, their collections almost always include pieces inspired by decades past. Another iconic era that has been recently making waves on the catwalk are the Big '80s with shoulder pads, stirrup pants and all.

Whilst I don't think I can pull off an '80s prom dress-inspired frock à la Elle Fanning in Rodarte, one trend that I can work into my wardrobe are fancy frills. What could be more reminiscent of the Decade of Decadence than a crazy ruffled blouse paired with mom jeans? 

What is your favourite fashion blast from the past?
