Remember the ‘80s? How could you forget the wild hair, leopard print clothes, neon colours and bold necklaces? Well we love all of these things and they're all making a comeback. Subtle leopard print is transitioning from festival wear to day-to-day styles, wild hair in all its glory can be seen everywhere (though maybe not the perms) and 80's inspired necklaces are making a comeback.
The necklaces of the 80s were vibrant, big and beaded. While we’re not suggesting you start wearing neon to the office but we do think you can effortlessly add a touch of 80s glamour to your everyday look. Between big pendants, bright colours and sophisticated pearls there's an 80's chic necklace for everyone.

Glistening golds and brightly coloured gemstones were another hot 80s trend. Magentas, emeralds, amethysts, turquoise, no colour was left untouched!
