Take a trip down memory lane.
Ah, 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, Julia Roberts, et al.) Celebrity fashion during this decade was frankly glorious—the scrunchies! The boxy blazers!—even serving as inspiration for an '80s trends revival in recent fashion seasons. If you're looking for a refresher on the most magical aspects of '80s fashion, we dug up some of the most on-trend celebrity looks of the decade. Take a trip down memory lane with us, ahead.
Was it really the '80s if couples didn't wear power suits to every Hollywood event? Jack Nicholson and Anjelica Huston wore their version at the premiere of Terms of Endearment in New York City.
Photographed at her home, the queen of disco wore an array of outfits, but this light blue matching set with a beaded belt paired with white espadrilles takes the cake.
At the Footloose premiere in Beverly Hills, Jamie Lee Curtis' studded belt was the star of her two-piece suit. We'd be lying if we didn't say her silver bracelets caught our eyes first, though.
At the 1988 Academy Awards ceremony, the pair channeled old Hollywood glamour but made sure to give some timely touches to their outfits, like Costner's round glasses and Hannah's glitzy cocktail dress.
Front row at a show during New York Fashion Week, the award-winning actress wore a polka-dotted dress with some serious shoulder pads and red circular sunnies.
At the Los Angeles Batman movie premiere, Basinger wore a mesh long sleeve dress over some lingerie, which in retrospect is something any member of the Kardashian family would totally wear today.
The house key as an earring! The acid wash jeans! The strategically collared shirt over the colorblock sweater! I swear I've seen this exact outfit on one of my Pinterest fashion inspiration boards.
Here, Nicks is pictured at the 1987 MTV Video Music Awards, where she was a presenter. Just another friendly reminder that the singer never ages.
The frontwoman of the Runaways and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts knew the power of black eyeliner. She also knew how to mix textures too. I mean, an animal print scarf with a pink geometrical shirt? Genius.
Mentally, I want to be at the New York City premiere of Steel Magnolias so I can witness Parton in this sparkly dress that comes with a matching jacket. I'm swooning!
Years before she tied the knot with rock legend David Bowie in 1992, the supermodel was a muse for designers like Gianni Versace and Yves Saint Laurent. Here, she wears an all-denim look paired with silver accessories.
Don't Dakota Johnson's parents look so chic here?! I can't tell what I would want more in my closet: Griffith's lace dress or her coat with red lining.
The lead singer of Blondie, photographed here at a recording studio in New York City, is wearing cute straight-leg jeans, a textured sweater, and pointed boots.
The iconic model's off-duty look is something you see the models of today spotted in, proving that a graphic tee, high-waisted jeans, and a cardigan never goes out of style.
At a special luncheon for Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, Ally Sheedy and Rebecca De Mornay demonstrated the power of a good shoulder pad.
The singer looked like the ultimate badass in a studded leather set with a red lace bra while performing on stage.
The actress arrived at the 55th annual Academy Awards in an embellished green dress. She looked radiant in front of the cameras.
The actress, then 32, took a subway ride in NYC while wearing a floral print off-the-shoulder dress.
The singer went all out in a denim-on-denim look while in Montreal. Here's a style tip to think about: lace socks with loafers or flats.
Kim Cattrall attended a benefit event hosted by Princess Yasmin Khan in a black dress with floral ruffles. This was 10 years before Cattrall would become the iconic Samantha on Sex and the City.
Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn dressed up for a gala event hosted by the American Ballet Theater in California. Hawn's feathered frock was classic, beautiful, and appropriately glamorous for the occasion.
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.
The actress wore a long-sleeve red dress with satin-like fabric hanging from the sides of her gown. She was attending the 40th primetime Emmy Awards in Pasadena, California.
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 bralette under a blazer is trending for 2020, but back in 1983 Brooke Shields was already rocking, and mastering, this look. Here, she attended the premiere of Stayin Alive on July 11 at Mann Chinese Theater in Hollywood, California.
Can we talk about Jane Fonda's lace-up red boots? Ten out of 10 we would still wear these today.
Then the newly-crowned Miss America, Vanessa Williams was all smiles at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. She bundled up in a furry coat that looked luxuriously soft.
The singer performed onstage in a glittering red sequin dress. This look would still be relevant on the red carpet today. Gal Gadot wore a similar version of this red gown to the Oscar's after-party in 2018.
The actress wore a semi-sheer lace dress to an event in Santa Monica, California. We could totally see this look being reworked for today, if you take away all of the excess ruffles.
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.
