While everyone has spent the past year paying fashion homage to the Nineties with their “vintage” Nirvana tees, Teva sandals, slip dresses and tiny sunglasses, we’ve noticed the beginning of an Eighties renaissance take hold: bold neons, Reebok Freestyle Hi sneakers and acid wash denim are taking over the streets of New York.
Who are we to argue? We still play The Bangles, Heart and The Police on repeat (yes, we’ve turned into those people who are stuck in the music of their youth). We weren’t quite ready for the reboot until we saw some of the chicest women in stone and acid-washed denim but in updated, modern silhouettes. The Eighties nostalgia took hold immediately and we became evangelists to the trend. Can we convince you? Let’s at least give it a try. Here are three ways to work the Eighties Acid Wash Denim into your current aesthetic!
