Omiru Poll Results: 80s Fashion is On the Way Out

Omiru Poll Result: 80s Fashion is On the Way Out


Grey Ant Slash TopWe asked: Is 80s Fashion In or Out?

You said:  The 80s called, and they want their clothes back.  Nearly as many people voted 80s Fashion Out (30%) as In (34%).

Omiru’s take: True–the 80s did give us more than their share of fashion mishaps.  Think giant shoulderpads and the parachute pant (eek).  But that doesn’t mean that we should throw out the baby with the bathwater. 
Gold lamé, in moderation, can provide sparkle to an otherwise ordinary evening outfit.  And off-the-shoulder tops can beautifully counterbalance narrow pants.

Next Question: Colorful accessories lit up the runways at Marc Jacobs and Duckie Brown.  But what do You think?   Tell us, are Colorful Accessories In, or are they Out?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

Junk Necklace

Junk Necklace by Erica Anenberg While at the hardware store, designer Erica Anenberg was inspired to recreate everyday objects–such as the tab from a soda can–in jewelry form.  Pairing the soda can tab with a nail, drill bit, and a nut, she created a "junk" necklace that looks anything but. 

Fun fact about Erica? Although she’s creative and fashion forward, she has a super geeky side. She’s been known to take apart radios and other electronic devices, just so she can put them back together. 

$156 at Erica Anenberg.
