INSPIRATION: POWER DRESSING in RED
While the seventies was a decade to let everything loose, in free-flowing crochet dresses and flares, the 1980s saw clothes get tighter, skirts shorter, jackets wider and pants get lycra-fied!
It was a period of excess and it certainly showed in the fashion of the times. More and more women were entering the workforce and dressing the part. Female silhouettes were heavily exaggerated by designers like Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren and Armani, with strong, broad shoulders featured on blazers and paired with impossibly slim fitting trousers and skirts to show their power and equality with men.
This week we have an amazing 80s dress that has just the right degree of crazy to its proportions: fitted skirt and wide pleated batwing sleeves , we can totally see Florence Welch belting out a ballad in this and some sky-high stilettos! What’s says POWER more than fiery red, right Kanye?
