And you don't have to have lived through it to have learned it. This trend is forever.
There's just one difference for A/W 14 - the look has had an edgy update and you can do it in full throwback style or mix the odd piece into your winter wardrobe.
When it comes to warmth, a really off the wall, oversized coat is the best investment.
The next thing to note is layering - Louis Vuitton paired polo necks with pinafores - and then print.
At Valentino, polka dots and chevron stripes were worn top-to-toe (maxi dresses and long button down outerwear) or as jazzy separates.
As for accessories, Gucci showcased the cosiest-looking shearling furs, snakeskin knee-high boots and aviator shades. The sugary pastel palette and the sharp tailoring made this collection one for women who like to turn heads.
And for those who aren't up for embracing this trend fully, give a subtle nod to the era with a leather pencil skirt or a pair of patent ankle boots.
