Embracing the ’80s style in hot pink

Another super hot Oxfam Superstore find

If you’re anything like me, you can’t resist the allure of retro styles. Well, guess what? I recently stumbled upon a hidden gem at Oxfam Superstore—a stunning hot pink dress straight out of the 80s! And let me tell you, it was an absolute steal at just £12.99. So, come along as I share my excitement about this incredible find and why it’s a must-have addition to your wardrobe.

Unleashing the Power of Hot Pink

Oh, the 80s! A time when fashion was all about making a statement. And what better way to do that than with a hot pink dress? This vibrant color screams confidence, fun, and a dash of unapologetic femininity. Trust me, wearing this dress does transport you back to the days of big hair and neon lights.

Authentic 80s Style

Now, let’s talk about the dress itself. It perfectly captures the essence of 80s fashion, with its puffed shoulders, cinched waist, and flared skirt. The moment I laid eyes on it, I was instantly transported back in time. The hot pink hue combined with the playful design makes for a head-turning ensemble. What’s more, it delivers perfectly on nostalgia being exactly the same shade as my mum’s favourite jumpsuit at the time I remember her wearing often in the ’80s.

Quality and affordability

One of the best things about this find is that it ticks all the boxes when it comes to quality and affordability. Despite its low price tag, it is in excellent condition, and I am glad I was the lucky secondhand shopper who laid eyes on it first! And let’s not forget the impact of shopping second-hand. By choosing this dress from Oxfam Superstore, not only are you making a sustainable fashion choice, but you’re also supporting a worthy cause.

The key accessories

Let’s not forget the rest of the look though! And all second-hand finds too. Thinking hot pink and deep mustard would work well together, I paired this dress with a pair of shoes I got a couple of years ago from Barnardo’s – originally M&S – and a handbag from Woodgreen. The result? Top to toe second-hand chic.

So, fashion enthusiasts, if you’re ready to embrace the vibrant energy of the 80s, it’s time to go thrift shopping as that’s where you’ll get the real deals. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed. An affordable way to to channel your inner ’80s diva while making a positive impact. Let’s add a touch of nostalgia, style, and individuality to our wardrobes and support a great cause along the way.
