For those who aren’t yet aware, the top fashions and trends of the
1980’s have already emerged or are reemerging on the fashion runways
once again. The floral fads, the neon colors, the mini skirts, and the
masculine take on women’s fashions all can be seen in any fashion
magazine you care to flip through and, if you aren’t already wearing
them, you’ll definitely be sporting these fashions come summer, no
matter how much you profess otherwise right now. However, there is one
80’s fashion fad that has thus far been over looked, that being the New Romantics.

The New Romantics, named so after the Romantic era of the late 18th century, materialized during the early 1980’s in Britain night clubs and was a revolt against Punk, the anti-fashion.
The New Romantics wore flamboyant and ultra-glamorous garments made of
bright colors, luxurious fabrics and decorated with accents of braided
rope and bold hardware, giving them an almost costume-like appearance.
Wearers of New Romantics style longed to recreate the golden age of
Hollywood fashion and glamour.
