Recreate Your Favorite Glitzy Looks From GLOW

Guts, glitter and glory.

While '90s fashion may be back in a big way this summer, the '80s are definitely making a strong case for a comeback on the hit Netflix's series, GLOW. An acronym for Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, this wild comedy gets its name and premise from the highly popular television show which originally ran between 1986 and 1990. In its current iteration, GLOW continues the tradition by having a cast packed with kick-ass women wearing kick-ass clothing. Big hair, leotards, glitter and vintage finds are on screen aplenty, daring us to keep all our dreams of glitz and victory alive. 

Producing the show was no easy task. Creator Liz Flahive, also known for the other female-led powerhouse series, Orange Is The New Blacksaid that "doing a period wrestling comedy with 15 people that's a half hour was, just from a production standpoint, insane [...] we wanted the period to be very, very, very specific – not cartoon '80s, but this dusty '70s into '80s that felt grittier and a little bit more real." 

Costume designer Beth Morgan, who worked on The Last Man on Earth and Key and Peeletalked to Pret-a-Reporter about how she researched and sourced GLOW's vintage clothing goodies from thrift stores in L.A. like The Kit Vintage and The Way We Wore. Finding authentic leotards from that era proved to be difficult "because they wear out," but that didn't stop her from pulling together a costume department filled with serious throwback pieces that give us major shopping goals – velour romper anyone? How about some towelling booty shorts? Yes and yes

If you're not wooed by spandex, the high-waisted jeans, cute track shorts and boxy jackets are totally on point right now. A graphic crop top is perfect for your weekend hang, while a floral cami worn underneath a bomber jacket can bring some casual sexiness to a night out with your squad. Just make sure to punch it up with little glitter in your hair as an homage to the ladies of GLOW
