This spring/summer we're throwing it back! The hottest trends this year are all inspired from the weird and wonderful 80s and 90s and are sure to inject some fun back into your wardrobe. Think sequins, shoulder pads, slips and bum bags - we can't wait! Check out our 5 favourite pieces below...
More is more this spring/summer. Bring out your inner Madonna with Topshop’s exciting collection of 80s-inspired pieces. They have everything from metallics to leather, sequins and more – it’s a pop lover’s dream! We love their Velvet Grace Wide Ankle Strap Heel Court Shoes. Featuring a 5″ heel and cute buckle, these shoes will make you feel fabulous!
Florals never go out of fashion. As well as looking chic, they brighten up any day! We can’t get enough of the Mustard Floral Tiered Midi Dress found in New Look on Paradise Street. As well as being ridiculously cute, it’s also incredibly verstaile. Layer it up with a white tee on cooler days for a more casual look, or just wear it on its own with a floppy hat and sandals on a hot day for an effortlessly sophistciated look!
Off the shoulder
Give a nod to Bardot with an off-the-shoulder top. Go to Zara on South John Street to find one of our favourites – the Off-The-Shoulder Ruffled Top. This romantic flowing top is perfect for summer days. Wear it with an ankle length skirt and some statement earrings for a bohemian vibe that will make you look the epitome of cool.

Culottes. You’ll have probably seen these everywhere and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly comfy but they also add some edge to any outfit. Dressed up or down, they’re a must-buy this S/S 18. Zara on South John Street have a great collection of culottes. Our favourite pair is their Flowing Cropped Trousers in Red/Black. Featuring an elasticated waistband, handy side pockets and cute button detailing at the front, these attention-grabbing trousers will make you look super stylish.
Compact and cool, we love a bumbag. They add some fun to any outfit and are a must if you’re off on your holidays. Topshop have a huge collection in their store on Keys Court. From leather to fur, plain to colourful, we guarantee you’ll find your perfect one here. Our top pick is the Madison Black Leather Bumbag. Worn around the waist or slung over the shoulder, this bumbag looks amazing with denim!
