[tweetmeme]I am a little ashamed to admit that I kind of like the comeback of the 80s. It’s a more refined reinterpretation: the strong shoulders are less clunky, the neon brights less obnoxious, and the miniskirts less trashy this time around. Designers have been using a more careful hand in creating volume and strength with slightly rounder and more feminine silhouettes, exercising restraint with pops of color and modesty with opaque tights.

The Zac Posen designer collaboration for Target is a good example of the 80s runway trend made wearable and affordable for the average American woman. Unfussy and fun. Click here for images and prices from the lookbook.

Not everything is a winner, but I especially like the tuxedo bodysuit and skirt paired with the red leather jacket, high heeled t-strap maryjanes, and scrunched down knee socks. The brocade tie dress is sweet (though for $75, I’ll save my pennies so I can buy real Zac Posen at a sample sale). I would pair the dress with a pair of brown high heeled lace up boots or oxford flats and a short denim jacket for a prairie feel. I also think the maxidress would be perfect for a sexy summer date, and the tuxedo jacket would look adorable over a wifebeater and skinny jeans.
