The Breakfast Club is 30 and Fabulous: 8 Looks from the 80s

The 80s gave birth to some of the greatest teen dramas of all time including Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Sixteen Candles, but one stands out as capturing the essence of teenage angst best: The Breakfast Club.

On February 15, 1985 John Hughes brought the realm of high school to an unparalleled reality when he pitted five students in a library to do weekend detention. Now, thirty years since it’s release, the film still comprehends the struggles and triumphs of what high school life is like. From the sharp dialogue to the character dynamics and, of course, the unforgettable fashion.

80s fashion is distinct and The Breakfast Club does an incredible job at showcasing the decade’s style. Watching the film can feel like entering a museum with an exhibit on period fashion on display; it makes some nostalgic, others inspired, and can even educate.

From chunky knits to crop tops, enjoy a blast from the past with The Breakfast Club in the slideshow above.
