Inspiration: Madonna in 1980’s Lower East Side

(Photo Credit: here)

Like most girls who grew up in the 1980’s I spent a good amount of time trying to dress, look like, and basically “be” Madonna of the 1980’s. I saw this photo posted recently in one of my favorite Facebook groups Manhattan before 1990 and noticed right away how even from way back when Madonna still looks fresh and modern, and could easily wear this same outfit any time and any place in Manhattan today.

Here is my twist on how I would style this outfit today. A little more simple, a little more sleek, but with all the same details intact.
