A major fashion throw back is occurring this Autumn/Winter with bulky retro belts, power shoulders and leather skirts. Yes, the era that was once a fashion punch line has returned bigger and better than ever with its latest party girl looks.
Metallic, glitter and oversized blazers; is this making your cringe yet? Well prepare for an attitude adjustment as designers, such as Balmain, have taken the eighties to a new level by creating the power woman with sex appeal and structured shoulders.
Let’s not forget Henry Holland’s focus on stripes and bold prints this season, making his collection pop with flashes of cherry reds and crisp purples.
Oversized blazers are always great to sport in winter, with bulging statement shoulder pieces, it’s an item which can bring flavour to any outfit this season.
