Top 6 @ 6: The 80s Are Back

Though the 60s and 70s have reigned supreme for the last few seasons, the flash and circumstance of fashion's most debated decade, the 1980s, have found a brand new light. Exaggerated silhouettes with bold color combos ruled the Fall/Winter '15 shows of Loewe, KTZ, and Au Jour Le Jour. Nicolas Ghesquière's SS16 collection for Louis Vuitton featured androgynous buzz-cut models wearing powerful leather jackets in all colors of the rainbow. Vetements showed similar menswear Annie Lennox-style suits. And let's get real, this sleeper trend of 2015 is proving to explode in 2016. Perfect for a night out on the town or the daily grind, these pieces are most definitely not your mother's 80s looks.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
