Take a trip down memory lane.
Ahhh, the '80s. A magical time when the size of one's blazer could be bested only by the volume of one's hair. (See: Brooke Shields.) Celebrity fashion during this decade was inarguably glorious and even inspired a revival of '80s trends in recent fashion seasons. A few of our favorites: prairie dresses, scrunchies, and boxy blazers. If you weren't born in the '80s or have no recollection of the looks then, we found some stylish celebrity looks circa the '80s to remind you. Take a trip down memory lane and get inspired, ahead.
The singer stunned in a glittery plunging-neckline blue gown while on stage at a concert. It was a timeless look that still feels relevant today.
Forget the red carpet dress, Thompson chose an oversize purple satin (silk?) tuxedo set for the premiere of "That's Life" in West Hollywood. We wonder if she saved this look for her daughters Zoey and Madelyn Deutch?
The star looked demure in a floral headscarf and matching dress at the MTV Video Music Awards in California. We dig the outfit.
Milano, who was 15 years old in this photo, attended an all-star baseball game dressed in sporty striped biker shorts and a red bodysuit. She was ahead of the trends, biker shorts are everywhere now.
Stars were into the loose and oversized ensembles of the '80s. Here's Beals in a long white shirt, jacket, and jeans. She could have done without the belt, though.
Two years before starring in Thelma & Louise, Davis got on stage at the 61st Annual Academy Awards to accept an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in "The Accidental Tourist." She wore a silver dress with a tulle train.
Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins attended a pro-choice rally in Washington D.C. Sarandon leaned into the oversize blazer look with this red leather version.
Heburn, a member of Hollywood royalty, proved why she will always be a style icon when she wore this red gown and feather boa to an event. Being 60 never looked so good.
The actress looked cool and edgy in a leather jacket at the Los Angeles premiere of Great Balls of Fire! Dennis Quaid should have matched her.
The actress wore an embellished dress while out at Studio 54 with her daughter Gwyneth Paltrow, who was then 13 years old (rocking a prairie dress, we might add). You can definitely find similar looks today in a vintage shop.
That feeling when your shirt, massively oversized blazer, hair, and pocket square (?!?!?) all coordinate. Roberts kills it in suits.
Totally normal-sized hat paired with equally normal-sized sunglasses, nothing to see here. Also, she and daughter Zoë Kravitz are literal twins.
To be honest, this look is pretty current. Sitting on a chair backwards, however, is the most dated thing ever. We love you Drew.
A lot has changed since 1983 (especially Kidman's hair), but this look? It exists beyond the confines of time.
Apparently gladiator sandals also had a moment in the '80s. We're feeling it though.
Ways to Style a White Turtleneck, Volume VIII. Also, teach us your voluminous hair tricks Brooke.
Here, SJP is pictured at a "Mobilize for Women's Lives" pro-choice rally in LA. Her '80s look is the wonderfully classic pearl necklace and oversized white button-up, but it's the side-pony that makes it.
The hair, the sequins, the big clasp details! This would be a good Halloween outfit to recreate.
Madonna did bike shorts first and rocked it. This stage outfit was more understated than some of her previous performance looks.
Honestly, if you stare at it long enough, it actually becomes sort of fabulous? We'd turn that skirt into a shorter one, though.
The royal looked like a beautiful strawberry (we mean this in the best way) in a sparkly spaghetti strap dress with a sweetheart neckline.
This coat is basically the more fabulous version of Ron Weasley's dress robes for the Yule Ball (sorry, Ron). The princess even did a little matchy-matchy portion with her hat and heels.
The square neckline. The red lips. The sparkly, thick straps. The big hair. This is Molly Ringwald's look for the 59th Academy Awards.
You know how it's mysteriously cool-girl to wear fishnet tights under pants, with the tights peeping out the top? '80s Madonna gets it.
Take me on vacation, Cyndi. Paint my eyelids green. Make me a shell bracelet. Girls just wanna have fun.
Her face = judging all the other outfits on this list. She made a simple blazer, t-shirt, and panama hat look so, so cool.
You can never have enough layers. And, these somehow all work together?
A suit set that not only looks feminine and sophisticated, but also wearable. Ten out of 10 for execution.
Chunky jewelry, chunky sleeves, open neckline, sleek hair. This look truly has it all.
Squad goals, always and forever. Another Halloween costume idea for you.
Joan Collins struts through Beverly Hills in full black-and-white. With a red lip, of course.
We fully support bringing back these billowy overalls for 2019. Style with a crop top.
No star escaped the oversize look of the '80s, including Molly Ringwald. The blazer could have easily worked as a dress, too, with tights.
This look was for a James Bond film, so obviously it's amazing.
Taking the '80s by storm—with seashells on her boobs, and Mick Jagger on her arm.
This looks like something I wore last week, but far better. The all-black punctuated by a thick gold belt is still a classic in 2019.
Just say no to sheer white tights. UNLESS, it is paired with a white dress and you're Winona Ryder.
BRB, recreating this beauty look immediately.
This musical trio did the high-waisted-jeans-plus-crop-top look first. And now, in 2019, we are all just existing in their shadows.
Take me to the '80s, and then completely bedazzle me. Collar and all.
