“Call Me Maybe” is one thing, but are you ready for an ENTIRE album stocked with so catchy-it-kind-of-hurts tracks? Um, duh. Better start practicing your karaoke skills, because Carly Rae Jepsen’s record Kiss officially drops today in the U.S. and features 15 more pop anthems guaranteed to be our (not so) guilty pleasure. She’s already shown her ’80s love in her newest single “This Kiss,” and now the singer has yet another homage to the era up her sleeve…this time, with her cover art fashion. We’re getting a serious Flashdance-meets-Dirty Dancing kind of vibe with the splashy “Carly Rae Jepsen” font and pink background, but her outfit REALLY seals the deal. From the oversized tee (sleeves rolled, natch), bow belt, and blue miniskirt, it’s clear somebody’s been doing her style research. And further proof that the ’80s are back: you can recreate the ENTIRE ensemble wearing- what else?!- American Apparel. See how to channel your own Jennifer Grey after the jump!

Leave it to American Apparel to provide one-stop shopping for all the retro basics necessary for this look. We’ve tracked down an identical unisex red tee, teal bandage skirt and purple bow belt to the ones Carly sports on the album art. AA’s even got you covered on the nail polish front, selling a pale yellow shade similar to hers. So whether you’re feeling lazy, uninspired, or slightly broke, it’s the simplest way to steal major pop star style. Now, if only scoring a #1 single were that easy…
