It’s fashion week here at WeLoveYA, I’m sure the other girls will provide some truly stupendous frocks throughout the week but I’m a walking fashion disaster. I guess it comes from growing up in the 80s where hair was big and shoulder pads were bigger! Yes I did fall victim to the efforts of certain clothing company’s pressure to conform to shoulder pad mania. I also wore taffeta, lycra and dayglo/flouro! I cringe when I see pictures.
So we’ll start off with prom fashions the things we wore include numbers similar to these beauties.
Shoulder pads and boofy hair, it could only be Dynasty (or Die Nasty as my siblings would call it)
The amount of hair product skyrocketed causing large ozone holes which were quickly eliminated by the mass marketing of hair gel. Who could forget Madonna’s influence.
Say the words Layers ladies, Layers. Mix lace and leather and faux fur and you’ve got the early eighties all over again.
Then we have the preppy set, boys wore pink and green together, yeah they did. I figure we can blame movies like Class and other Ivy League contenders for this look.
We have the flouro
We blame Wham for this phase of the 80s fair and square, they brought in a new dimension of fashion extremes.
Now for things that I actually liked? Ferris Bueller, that’s all we have to say about that. I soo wanted to be Mia Sara, she was cooler than cool. Maybe in a few weeks we can have a tribute to 80s movies that changed the world (or really just entertained a few teens).
