Pretty In Pink has some of the best style of any ’80s movie. I mean, it has a little of everything, from ultra prep to ultra indie to ultra grandma. I’m serious about the grandma bit, look at Andie!
But it’s Duckie’s style that really steals my heart. Big blazers, quirky shirts, those wire rim sunglasses…I would wear all of that in a hot second. It’s the perfect blend of quirky and tailored.
Whether you love Pretty In Pink or you just want to pretend that you’re an ’80s high school outcast (or a prepster who is in love with an outcast), check out these 10 clothes and accessories that’ll help you emulate that look.
BlazerFor a more relaxed fit, buy a blazer that is a size larger than you'd normally wear.Buy it at Forever 21 for $29.80
Floral VestYou want to make sure you resemble your grandma's couch as much as humanly possible.Buy it on Etsy for $22
Porkpie HatAnother Duckie classic. Some hats can be hard to pull off, but it's hard to look bad with a porkpie hat. Don't as me why, I think it's just science.Buy it at ASOS for $25.41
Button Down Oxford BlouseFor the ultimate '80s prep look, wear these with a pair of Chinos with the top two or three buttons undone. Make sure you look super holier than thou, too.Buy it at American Apparel for $49.30
Cut Out BootsFair these with some fun socks and a mini skirt. Or, wear them with pants that are cuffed at the hem.Buy it at Urban Outfitters for $49
PinsYou need pins to decorate your blazer with! You could go all the way with this style idea and get a Duckie pin but, hey, that's optional. Etsy has pins of just about everything you can imagine, but don't forget to hit up your local thrift store for some really fun novelty badges.Buy it on Etsy for $1.50
Funky EarringsAndie loved wearing dangling earrings, so why not do the same? Quirk it up with something like these parrots or anything else with a lot of color and pop.Buy it on Etsy for $8
A Pink Dress (Of Course)Okay, this is a little more on the peachy side but how can I possibly do a Pretty In Pink style post without a dress?Buy it at ModCloth for $52.99
Straight Leg PantsI'm sure Blane would rock these. These pants look great with a shirt tucked in or a comfy crop top.Buy it at ASOS for $39.93
Wire Rim SunglassesThese scream Duckie, right? They look great on just about everyone, so you'll probably look dope in them as well.Buy it at Urban Outfitters for $14
