Style Scoop: The '80s

Summer and winter are easy seasons.

When it's hot, all you need are shorts and Ts; when the deep freeze sets in investment wools and cashmere sweaters are standbys.

But when the first hint of spring is in the air, you realize that neither wardrobe extreme will do: it's time to shop again.

This spring fashion has enough trends bubbling up to keep everyone both the aesthetically pure at heart to the girlie well-clothed.

From Miguel Adrover's mismatched preppy look to Callaghan's draped Grecian goddess, designers revived styles from just about every era this season.

The hard-edged glamour of the '80s was an overriding theme for spring. From slicked-back hair to strong shoulders and white jeans, this look was inspired more than one designer.

Here are a few of the looks (click on photo for full-size image):
