80's inspired style fashion boyfriend blazer jeans loafers mad men molly ringwald michael jackson tall fashion

Ready or not, the 80’s fashion revival is in full swing. I, for one, am not totally sure I am ready to relive the era of my gangly, awkward youth. However, HøFSisters exists to bring trends, brands and style inspiration to our tall readers, come what may.

The Double-Breasted Blazer

So, here I am, in an Acne Studios double-breasted blazer, sleeves rolled up like a Miami Vice wannabe. The style is masculine so we softened the look with another 80’s icon, the high-neck body. (HøFTip -this item works best on an empty stomach or a salad lunch.) The overall effect is relaxed but sharp; a don’t-mess-with-me attitude on a dress down day.

The Body

As with other masculine trends already embraced by HøFSisters, the 80’s blazer works really well on a long torso, especially this oversized  number. We get to wear the blazer, rather than the blazer wearing us. And there’s definitely no danger of exposing a chilly gap when bending down to put on your loafers.

Glitter Loafers

Speaking of loafers, the Tod’s pair I am sporting here, which you may recognise from Han’s wardrobe, are fabulous. Don Johnson, eat your heart out. These are more worthy of Michael Jackson in his heyday; glitter-tastic and ready for a moonwalk.

The 80’s Conclusion

So, are we feeling revved up for this yet?

While writing this blog, I have decided to dig out those 80’s classics Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club (oh, the nostalgia!) – definitely ripe for another viewing. I googled Molly Ringwald, and there it was, the inspiration I needed – she spent a great deal of the 80’s rocking a mannish oversized blazer.

So, it’s a Miami Vice/Michael Jackson/Molly Ringwald mash-up. What’s not to love?
