Ah, the 1980s. Lace, acid wash, Madonna, Frankie Say Relax, bolo ties, preppy, endless uses of the salmon and mint green color combo. Good times. I like this vintage sweater because it captures the essence of a decade without being too over-the-top. I'm not looking to leave the house in full-on neon while rocking a Flock of Seagulls hairdo. But a touch of nostalgia is good for the soul every once in awhile.
I completed my look with more nods to the 80's: bright pumps, plastic hoop earrings and aviator sunglasses. And no, the pants don't have zippers at the ankles.
Want the look? The sweater is available in my Poshmark closet. Just click here.
