That 80's Cocktail Party Trend
Amidst the anything but subtle wink of your bright blue shadowed eye to your best bartender friend, it's time to kick up your shiny heels and take Harvey Wallbanger for a night out on the town.
This Spring's trends come together to scream 80's Cocktail Soiree in the best of ways.
Months of quarantining has made us all a little extra at this point. Ready to go all out, from sparkle, to metallics; from statement belts to statement bows, we all "just wanna dance with somebody, wanna feel the heat with somebody..."
From runways to small boutique lines, the trickle down affect of these trends took the express lane, in that shiny red Camaro.
Perfect for a spring dinner and party. With defined waists and exaggerated sleeves and details there is balance and ease even in pop pieces.
We've missed out a few parties, celebrations and debauchery. When we say we're all in, we mean Long Island Iced Tea style, everyone's (and every liquor's) accounted for. With all the pent up single birds to all the newly single men and women (thanks to the quarantine) the social scenes will give Animal Planet subjects, a run for their money.
'The female approaches her prey from afar, donned in a shiny top to catch attention, keeping her distance she laughs and dances with friends in close enough range to catch his eye but far enough away to make it a game all night.'
Shopbop always has a wide variety of on trend brands and selections and they did not disappoint in this our hour of need.

With graduated skirt lengths and higher necklines, conservatism opens up the field for the dramatics from texture, embellishments and enhanced elements.

Inspired from metallics to ruffles, texture on texture. The 80's spared no frivolity and we're here for it.
Cheers, to the bright, the bold and those "ready to party."
