Here is a gorgeous suit from my collection – very 80s with large shoulder pads, abstract button holes and 3 buttons that are not quite round. This one was by Tabasco. A great suit for the races, a wedding or even a power lunch. I love the idea of bright pink for the office, a nice change to basic black.
These are some other lovely hot pink and black 80s numbers I have found in my cyber travels this week. Two little cocktail numbers -
A tasteful sweater available at Clothes Encounters
For me the 80s was all about studded belts, big shirts, leg warmers and fingerless gloves. And fluoro, or day glo, rather than bright pink (and in green and yellow).
Fortunately fluoro is out, but hot pink and black will remain a classic. Just like Madonna, who didn't really do hot pink in the 80s, although the costume shops seem to think she did. She did day glo though, when she wasn't doing just black or white, and all colours at once.
She wears pink well now though.
Here is a cute and wearable little modern version of 80s Madonna hot pink.
Have a great vintage day
