On trend this season more than ever is 80’s fashion, or more Flashdance fashion. Flashdance was a popular movie in the 80’s that brought trends like leggings, leg warmers, loose fitting sweaters, and off the shoulder tees. If your looking for a laid back but stylish look this is def the look for you…
The above outfit was styled with a relaxed afternoon in mind. You can be comfy and stylish all at once with this outfit, and seperate the pieces by incorporating them into other outfits. I chose the RonJon off the shoulder sweatshirt because of it’s comfiness but also versatility. This sweatshirt can be worn in this outfit or thrown over a tanktop and jeans when in a hurry. The added color from the logo adds just enough color to this otherwise basic outfit. Leggings are always a basic need in a closet and I buy mine at Walmart or Old Navy. The reason why I do this is because you get a good enough quality for the small price you pay. The black leg warmers could be bought anywhere but I like these because they are cheap and black goes with everything 🙂
Above we have a coral off the shoulder crop top inspired by actual Flashdance fashion. If your uncomfortable showing too much skin you can always through a black tank top under the shirt but still have that subtle Flashdance feel. For the pant I went with a coral belted yoga capri which is not necessarily keeping on track with the Flashdance theme, but it will still compliment your top while still being comfortable. If your feeling really 80’s you can always go with a capri legging and some basic leg warmers. When you wear the leg warmers be sure to scrunch the warmer small enough to cover only your ankle and then stretch/style to your liking. Don’t forget to add your favorite tennis shoes and scrunchie your hair up 😉
Don’t have enough money to shell out for these outfits?
