Cult classics.

Words by

Even if you have never watched a John Hughes flick (I find that hard to believe), it’s not hard to recognise his references in basically every modern day teen flick. Think Easy A with Emma Stone, or Degrassi and wheelchair Jimmy (aka Drake).

Responsible for classic cult films including Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Breakfast Club, National Lampoons, Home Alone and waaaaaay more, John Hughes has brought a whole lot of brilliant ’80s fashion to the screen.

Exploring teen angst, along with the likes of Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Charlie Sheen and more, Hughes has defined a generation of fashion.

There’s plenty of boyfriend jeans, puffy prom dresses and fantastic hairstyles.
