Pleated poofy pants, boxy jackets, and secretary dresses…yes, some garments personify the best and worst of '80s fashion. But really, it's not so much which '80s gem you're wearing but how you're wearing it. That's why we love Liz Claiborne (Sport, especially). This icon of American sportswear made brilliant tailored vests, Marc Jabobs-worthy cropped baggy trousers, and divine little dresses with gorgeous prints you wouldn't see anywhere else. Here are a few finds that translate well to modern times.
