The runway at Marc by Marc Jacobs definitely had an ’80s vibe running through it, from the big hair and googles (as I used to call my mom’s sunglasses) to the boxier suits, bigger shoulders.

I’m not sure if anyone had ever been able to make the cross between pants-shorts-capris cool again, but if there ever is to be a designer to do it, it’ll be Marc Jacobs.

I swear those were the oversized shades my mom wore in the ’80s that I lovingly referred to as “googles”

And don’t forget about the oversized menswear-inspired jackets

Taking a cue from the ’80s preppy catalogue… this is what my mom wore to work back in the day…
