The trend for boyfriend cuts in womens fashion of late has brought a wealth of eighties influence, especially in outerwear pieces. This Red Hot Boyfriend Blazer from Fred Flare is an ideal choice for 80s lovers, providing that retro oversized look.
With fashion's eternal love of recycling ideas and adding new twists, it should be no surprise that retrospective design is no new thing. The 1980s had a particular fondness for fifties styles, reinterpreting pieces with a unique eighties slant.
This Polka Dot Jacket from Warehouse is really reminiscent of an eighties reimagining of fifties style elements. The 50s polka dot print is used in a simple but structured blazer, with the rolled 3/4 sleeves and hip pockets helping to create that relaxed androgyny of eighties mainstream fashion.
It's available from Warehouse now for £65.
While the kids were getting all the wear possible out of neon brights and legwarmers, the eighties is a decade perhaps best known for its executive fashion. Power dressing for women truly defined the workplace's look, with suiting taking on new and striking shapes.
This Power Shoulder Blazer from ASOS really captures the essence of the look well, without veering into exaggeration. The padded shoulders create the perfect silhouette, balanced by a neatly tailored bodice with double buttoned waist. Available in two colours, it's the rich navy that really rounds of this retro look.

While the weather goes through that somewhat erratic phase between the British Summer and Autumnal chills, outerwear is often difficult to get right. You can't go wrong with a sturdy wool blazer though, like this heritage-look version from Zara.
The use of a checked wool fabric gives an immediate gentrified feeling to the blazer, with the addition of leather elbow patches adding a geek chic sixties and seventies feel. The subtle addition of a pocket handkerchief, complete with psychedelic floral print, is a cute touch that rounds off the vintage inspiration.
It's available now from Zara for £69.99.
With cord trousers still forming a staple in many seventies inspired wardrobes, the fabric is less often used in others pieces lately. This Cord Jacket from Selected Femme retains some of the seventies appeal of the fabric in a simple and wearable way.
The blazer style is simplistic, while retaining some of the decade's appeal thanks to the longline cut and tailored waist. The addition of leather elbow patches to the jacket adds some less-seen vintage style, while the colours of navy and black keep the piece easy to wear on any occasion.
It's available now from ASOS for £75.
