The decade that exuded vibrant colours, synth melodies, and power suits continues to exude an irresistible charm that modern culture finds irresistible. Fashion, music, and TV shows from this decade have seen an enormous resurgence, positioning this timeless era as an endless source of creativity and innovation. But why does its spirit keep coming back into our lives?

Fashion in the 80s: Bold, Bright and Beautiful

The 80s was an explosion of color and extravagance, made even more memorable by eye-catching fashion statements that turned heads and set trends. From power suits with their oversized shoulder pads proclaiming corporate success to acid-washed jeans that signaled casual cool, every piece made a statement about its owner's character and individuality. Neon colors, leg warmers and spandex weren't simply fashion choices, they represented individuals showing boldness. Modern fashion houses have revived iconic 80s styles, proving that flamboyance never really goes out of style. A touch of 80s flair now injects our wardrobes with vibrancy while keeping alive its spirit of nonconformity. And don't forget about its legendary hairstyles, teased hair, mullets and feathered bangs, that defined an era and continue to influence modern hair trends.

Music from the 80s: Synthwave and Sensation

Would you want to capture the 80s in one sound? One that perfectly encapsulated its culture? No doubt the electronic hum of synthesizers. Led by pioneers like Depeche Mode and New Order, synthpop and new wave reigned supreme on charts everywhere and found their way into our hearts through danceable melodies. This decade was defined by both electric exuberance of pop and rebellious rock music. Today, synthwave is making a notable comeback, not just out of nostalgia but out of genuine appreciation for its unique textures that defined an era. Modern artists are creating modernized renditions of these vintage sounds, recreating classics while pushing boundaries. Synthwave is an unforgettable form of music which cannot be ignored, so grab your neon shades and dance like it's 1985 all over again.
