For all those girls out there dreaming of getting their hands on their mum’s vintage wardrobe from her younger days, Topshop Unique has designed just the collection for you.

Their AW16 show this Sunday told the perfect 80s story of the studious library dweller with a rebellious edge. Oversized military green sweaters rebelled against uniformity with a leopard print texture, pairing off with sheer lace trousers. Calf length skirts oozed sex appeal matched with powerful fur jackets and a whole host of cropped numbers. Houndstooth is making a comeback, and as part of the power suit no less... go big or go home, right? A bright fuchsia lip and generous dose of eyeliner, coupled with messy side swept ‘bedhead chic’ hair told onlookers that this girl is ready to leave the classroom, but sure won’t be leaving the party any time soon (head to two in sequins, of course). Whether it’s the statement jacket, flash of fuchsia, or the power of the mid length boot, Topshop Unique showed fashion week that the 80s is back and it’s ready to party.

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.
