I think the 80's style comingback is great! Especially the legging trend, I own so many pairs of black leggings and I wear them with everything! The hat mentioned here is a great deal, too. I've been searching everywhere for a hat like this at a reasonable price!

Unfortunately even back in the 80's I couldn't pull off the leggings, but I'm so happy to see that the black blazer and the scarf are back!

I'm definitely into the leggings and bright nails. I think all of these are great! If you don't want to go all out I suggest easing into it with nails. I love the 80's!

Adding a long necklace can spruce up any outfit, it's the perfect 80's accessory! The Fedora hat is very cute and will definitely be an eye catcher! I will go shopping to find these items!

I've been through the eighties fashion once and I do not want to repeat the fashion trends. I want to create my own look with inspiration from that decade and attention to accessories.

I heard something on tv about liquid leggings or something, it combines the leggings trend with the neon trend! But jeez leggings highlight my thunder thighs.

Lightweight scarf has been in for a couple of years now. They're everywhere and are more affordable with great colours. Black leggings are comfortable indeed. They've been worn with high boots and a long shirt or sweater and a cool bag. Adding to the long shirt and leggings, adding a long blazer is cool as well. I like the look of leggings with high boots or in the summer with sandals and a long, cotton or linen shirt.

Even though I was born in the 80's I do not like very many 80's type of styles. All the things in the pictures are cute but if girls start wearing those AWFUL hair cuts, I will refuse to be trendy. nuff said!

I think no one can go wrong by keeping the outfit simple, and then adding a pop of color with bright shoes, belt, or nail color.

Natural makeup keeps this look current and fresh. Also for those of you who feel like you're slipping and about to reach for the old grandma blush...step away from the bright blush and Aqua-Net! lol

I love a white layering tank top. I'm always looking for tanks that have lace around the neck and also lace at the bottom -- ssssoooo pretty peeking out from under your shirt or blazer. I have a question about the bright neon nails -- I actually love bright neon pink nail polish. Is it only for women under 30, though?

My favorite thing is layering on a bright colored belt, or wearing bright colored jewelry, like long necklaces or chunky bracelets. It spices up any outfit :)

Although I think of the 80s of having some of the worst fashion trends, I love wearing light scarves and am so glad that it's back. It's an easy way to make a simple outfit of jeans and a t-shirt more fun and pretty.

I'm a plus sized, 27 yr. old, gal and sometimes with trends I find it hard to not look, well, awful. I wish that I knew ways to be trendy but not look weird.

I loved the 80's! All of these items remind me of my teen years! The straw fedora hat is one of my favorites. I have been looking for the perfect one for quite a while and think I have found a cute one at Banana Republic. I like how you could wear the hat for almost any occasion and still look funky while protecting your face from the sun!

great post. you never need to buy expensive clothes. target, walmart, and kmart are great places to shop for basics that you can mix and match to layer out into a highfashion look without paying ridiculous prices
