'80s Prep Is Making A Comeback For Fall: Here’s How To Get The Look, Head-To-Toe

Whether you’re on the hunt for bold blazers, classic denim, or the best new makeup line for you, you can find it at Macy’s.

This season marks one of the best iterations of ’80s-inspired fashion yet. The crisp preppy look has returned, and it’s one of the easiest ways to add runway-worthy moments to your everyday routine. Say you need to step out for a grocery run: Take a cue from celebrities of the era by going incognito-chic in jeans and a cap, then top it off with a chunky gold earring. Meanwhile, a professional work-from-home look gets a retro throwback with slingbacks and a bold brow. Want to channel your favorite croquet-loving ’80s friend group? Study up in style in their leader’s favorite plaid print.

No matter what’s on the schedule, a few key pieces from Macy’s fall collection will have you covered when channeling head-to-toe ’80s charm. Whether you’re on the hunt for bold blazers, classic denim, or the best new makeup line for you, you can find it at Macy’s.

The Off-Duty Royal

The Sharp-Shouldered Blazer

No need to take off your favorite pullover before heading out for a quick errand: This oversized cotton blazer adds a polished touch to any work-from-home look.

The Ultra-Relaxed Jean

Be paparazzi-ready when walking your dog around the neighborhood with light-wash Levi’s tucked into tall leather boots (Hint: Make it a cowboy boot for a cool Western spin on ’80s celeb-chic).

The Ducking-Out Baseball Cap

The ballpark might not be open to fans just yet, but you can still show your team pride when out and about. (And yes, Macy’s offers scores of additional sports teams to choose from.)

The Peachy Cheek

A buildable formula gives your look a petal-soft finish, while customized pigment control means going from low-key to high drama in no time.

The Drop Earring

Let a touch of gold peek out with these timeless Ralph Lauren earrings. (A lightweight design and secure post backing means no sore ears, either.)

A Blazer-Cape Hybrid

Prep just leveled up with this cape’s striking slit sleeves — it’s the best combination of style and function.

Super-Wearable Slingbacks

Run out for a lunch break in flashy pink pumps with a comfortable heel and rounded cap toe.

If it’s been a while since you tried a floppy hat, now’s the time to throw your hat back in the ring. In a luxe textured wool and versatile gray hue, this sharp accessory is a fun alternative to the traditional fall beanie.

The Movie Star Brow

Define your bold brow using Anastasia’s flexible-tip pen for precise, natural microstrokes.
