Q: Is
it just me or are the '80s coming back in a big way? I've already lived
through it once and am not loving the flashbacks! Do we have to go
through this again?

whether you like it or not, the '80s are back in a big way. Neon was
splashed all over the runways from Dries van Noten and Marc by Marc
Jacobs to Moschino and 3.1 Phillip Lim! It's a huge trend for Spring
that you can't miss -- partly because it's so damn eye catching. If
you're shy about looking like an Electric Youth throwback, keep your
neon limited to accents and accessories. Add a pop of color with a bold
stripe on a sweater, a pair of dayglo hightops or even a shot of color on a skinny tie. If
you're feeling particularly brave and like to make a statment, pump up
the volume and reach for a solid shirt or pants in a fluorescent hue.
If you're not a fan of fluorescent, stick to the classic 80s looks from
gray jeans and jackets -- especially gray leather jackets from Diesel.
This time around, the looks are more tailored than their predecessors
-- so you won't feel like you're swimming in M.C. Hammer pants.
