It’s not just a phase. That’s right. The ’80s were a time for over-the-top hair and makeup, wild fashion, a whole lot of confidence and, of course, rock ’n’ roll. We are #living for this decade and are so excited that its style trends are making a dramatic comeback.

Here are a few of my favorite trends from this fashion-forward decade.

Chunky Sneakers

You may know them as dad shoes, too. When they’re paired with simple leggings or boyfriend jeans, chunky sneakers will never fail you. You can even pair it with a T-shirt dress or a slip skirt for a sporty-chic…


The Moulin Rouge. You have probably heard of this famous Parisian landmark many times. After all, it has its own Broadway musical named after it. Moulin Rouge! The Musical is the first-ever two-in-one Broadway musical and fashion show, which is monumental news to both the theatrical and fashion industry. Celebrities such as Billy Porter, Paris Hilton and members of The Blonds made an appearance that will not be forgotten. Even better, they set up their runway show in a sold-out theater with one of the most popular current musicals. Yes, “The Blonds x Moulin Rouge” did that.

New York Fashion…


Chromat showed up and showed out for its 10th year as a fashion label at New York Fashion Week, and its show left us in tears. That’s right — tears. This brand is all about inclusivity and highlighting fashion for a variety of races, shapes, sizes, backgrounds, cultures, ages and everything else imaginable. In the end, Chromat broke down the barriers in fashion and worked toward the fact that everybody is worthy of empowering swimwear. For years, people had told Becca McCharen-Tran, the founder of Chromat, that she would never make it and her swimwear collection was a joke. She…


Decorating your dorm room is number one on your list of priorities at the beginning of a new college semester. You organize everything in a way to match that very special picture you found on Pinterest, but you feel like your space still doesn’t showcase the true you. No need to worry. Bobby Berk, the Queer Eye home designer we all know and love, can cure this case of design fatigue! In every episode, Bobby has proved his ability to massively transform lackluster spaces into beautiful homes with a style that is still able to reflect the person living there…


Jonathan Van Ness, the “Queer Eye” beauty guru we all know and love partnered with Pop-Tarts to add a little bit of sparkle to pretzels during the Super Bowl. The brand campaign was to ultimately “fix” the classic pretzel by replacing it with the newest sweet and salty snack, the Pop-Tarts Pretzel.

I believe Pop-Tarts selected Van Ness as a partner for this campaign due to his nature of bringing out the best in people, even Pop-Tarts. He has already won over the hearts of millions of people across the world and is a true breath of fresh air in…


Good Housekeeping is an American women’s magazine owned by Hearst Corporation, featuring articles about product testing, health topics and other women’s interests.

An example of created content was their graphic advertising the idea of supporting small businesses. This graphic was created by the magazine team and followed the color guide to match the brand’s personal style aesthetic. There are other inspirational graphics throughout their Instagram page using the same fonts, logos and colors to give the brand a recognizable graphic as well as add a sense of consistency amongst their social platforms. This specific example highlights small businesses and gives…

This article surrounds the topic of promoting positivity on social media platforms such as Instagram, which is still facing challenges in the long fight against cyberbullying such as hateful comments and abusive accounts. Instagram is supposed to be used as a space for sharing photos, creating memories and capturing life’s most exciting events in a page that is uniquely one’s own.
