1. Pins, Patches & Stickers (+800%)

Replacing the off-shoulder trend, statement sleeves have seized the fashion scene since fall, with bell sleeves leading the pack. Choose lengths from subtle to dramatic as you wear your fashion instinct on your sleeves!

Layering hype is not confined to just clothing. Stack your earrings or feel free to mix and match, and glamorize your ears with multiple piercings.
5. Backless Shoes (+240%)
Forget about socks and shoelaces — backless shoes are here to stay. This carefree style gets you ready in no time and allows your foot to breathe. And there’s more to it than the typical mules. Think backless sneakers, slides and even stilettos!

Say yes to vintage tees, high-rise and peg-leg jeans, denim skirts, high tops, white trainers and backpacks. Because the 80s are coming back in style.
