Ah, the ’80s. There’s perhaps no era in fashion as equally well-loved and reviled as the period from 1980 to 1989; it was a time filled with shiny leggings, high-cut spandex, and (of course) lots and lots of neon. But, whether you’re a fan of the decade’s styles or not, one thing is for certain: the ’80s are back in a big way. It’s no secret that neon is super-trendy right now, and there are other trends making a big comeback: leggings, slouchy sweaters, loud prints, and more.
