The movies Fame and Flashdance have had a large influence over our activewear since they came out in the 1980s. No matter what brand, there are always pops of neon and fun pieces of activewear available on the high street.
For instance, the hot pink leggings shown in the mood-board below give us a fun, 80s Flashdance look. The powerful pop of colour can brighten any sports look and keep your outfit fun. Pair these with a grey sweatshirt, like the one shown in the mood-board, and you’ve nailed the iconic Flashdance look. Or, if you’re feeling brave enough, you can wear a bodysuit like the silver one shown below: you can’t get anymore 80s than this!
The crop tops are also essential for creating a Fame or Flashdance sports look. The Ivy Park collection from Topshop have good options for crop tops. Pair these crop tops with some leggings and you’re good to go. If you want to add a little 80s touch to any sports look, leg-warmers are the obvious go-to. The light pink leg-warmers from H&M are perfect to add to your looks. There are a variety of ways to work these looks, so there is something for everyone.
