With every designer from Isabel Marant and Balenciaga to Saint Laurent and Halpern championing OTT ’80s mini dresses for FW18, the message from the runway was clear: this season, more really is more. Indulge your nostalgia and start gearing up for party season by opting for power shoulders, puffed sleeves and copious amounts of sequins. To stop the look from teetering into costume territory, switch tack when it comes to accessories: sleek heels, slicked-back hair and minimal jewelry will give your outfit a modern edge, and ensure that these show-stopping pieces get the attention they deserve.
