Uptown vs. downtown

Uptown 80s: Dress for success in 80s-inspired power suits

For a more grown-up take on 80s style, the flipside og the bodycorn trend, this look is all about structure pieces - see Stella McCartney's mannish jacke - and strong shapes (yes, big shoulders are back) for a modern twist on power dressing.

Downtown 80s: Material girls mix acid-wash denim with retro brights

It's been called 'the decade that style forgot', but that didn't stop designers from drawing heavily from the 80s for inspiration this season. Bleached and ripped denim, black Lycra, off-the-shoulders tops and block brights will all ensure your wardrobe is on-trend for spring/summer.
