I cringe looking at 80s fashions.
Can anyone be considered stylish if they grew up in the 1980s?
Fashion certainly took a break and all rules were broken.
I blame it on MTV music videos.
Madonna and Michael Jackson started some trends.
George Michael, too. Fashion was everywhere in music videos. How else would people know to match up a neon shirt with rolled up jeans? Or wear suspenders with Doc Martens? Lots of fashion choices were abundant in the 1980s.
Suspenders, capezio shoes, broaches, long denim skirts, mini skirts, oversized shoulder pad shirts, cut up t-shirts, denim jackets, the list can go on and on.
Even though fashion was out there and not as stylish as the 1940s fashion, hairstyles were inventive.
Today, not many people can pull of wearing a permed and over hair sprayed hairstyle.
Eco- conscious, plant based people would freak out with all the chemicals in hairspray!
But, one thing that was stylish in the 1980s was an asymmetrical haircut. Of course it was a normal to wear hair in geometric styles. It was the 80s.
Also popular was the dreaded mullet.
But….a mullet will NEVER be stylish.
