The 1980s are also a novelty — and a not too distant one — to the twentysomethings that the fashion business so desperately chases. So the time period is ripe for ripping off. Since most trendy ’80s styles are not overly embellished, they are more cost-effective for designers to produce, which makes sense in a time when even luxury companies have to cut back. The flip side is that you don’t need to pay top dollar for leggings and oversized sweaters, which are easy for Zara, H&M and others to copy. Pictured: Gucci
