'80s Celebrity Style: Today's Fashion Inspo?

Vintage looks you could totally pull off today.

Styles of the ’80s are back, and they fit in so seamlessly with today’s looks, you may have barely noticed. As the fashion adage goes, styles come in cycles— while some things have been left behind (R.I.P. shoulder pads) many of today’s trendiest looks are just blasts from the pasts. Here are some killer outfits totally worth copying — before they hit today’s lookbooks.

Jerry Hall, 1987 Georges De Keerle/Getty Images Jerry Hall, 1987 It's a classy dress that could work for any occasion. Just how versatile is it?
