Our Totally Awesome 80s party is just a couple of weeks away, and while we're sure to see some amazing old school looks, there are some trends that I wish would stay in style forever.

    Side Ponytail

    The side pony is great for us ladies who aren't as skilled in the hair department. Can't get your mane straight? Side pony to the rescue!

    Necklaces on Necklaces!

    Sometimes it's tough for a girl to decide just which accessory to wear...with this fun 80s trend, there's no need to decide! Bigger is better, and more is more, so wear them all!

    Shoulder pads

    This one is great for those especially clumsy types...the more padding on your body, the less bruising! Plus, you never know when you'll need a travel pillow! Pull out one of those shoulder pads, and get ready for nap city!

    Maybe it's because I was born in the 80s, but neon just does something for me. I know it's not the most flattering, but something about wearing a bright pop of color always puts me in a good mood. I will forever love day-glo pumps...truly outrageous. Just like Jem.

    Let's be honest. This is every woman's way of getting out of wearing real pants. Lazy? Leggings. Skirt a smidge too short? Leggings. Bloated? Leggings. Want to wear sweatpants to work without getting fired? Leggings. Again, maybe not flattering on everyone, but screw that...you feel good, you look good. Boom.
