The time to layer up is upon us, and Cotton On’s latest drop of slouchy, cosy knits, on-trend outerwear and fresh denim styles are leading the way for wintery feel-good vibes. The latest collection of casual cool heads back to the 80’s, when punk was hot, and communism was not. This period saw the rise of icons Cher, Madonna and Tina Turner pave the way for 80’s fashion trends. Big shoulders, bright colours, oversized jumpers, faux fur and distressed denim, were all key to rocking looks in this fashion-forward era.
Madonna made crop tops what they are today. The tummy teasing top in bold statement colours became a staple of the 80’s becoming a regular on many famous tv shows and movies. Cotton On’s Chloe Cropped Luxe Pullover sees the cropped bight colour trend come to life with a range of jumpers in flashing pops of bright colours from yellow to pink.
Faux fur is more popular than ever. More and more companies are beginning to embrace the cruelty-free fashion option with many luxury fashion houses opting to ban the use of the real thing altogether. The delectable combination of Faux fur and big shoulders was prominent in the 80’s with singers such as Cher and Tina Turner rocking the style. Reminiscent of Cher’s leopard fur coat, Cotton On has revived the look with their new Teddy Peacoat, a faux fur coat with a fashionable leopard print.
Distressed denim was one of the items of choice for punks in the 80’s. Double denim wasn’t only a dress-up party theme; it was a popular look for the fashion forward. Cotton On’s Girlfriend style Sherpa Denim Jacket and Mid Rise Straight Crop Jeans help to bring this anti-establishment movement back to life.
80’s revival heritage is the new millennial pink, complete the look with faux fur and bright coloured jumpers – oversized knits and distressed denim.
