  • Banana Clip

    I love the banana clip!  If you were having a bad hair day BAM! An instant hairdo.

  • Flashdance Sweatshirt

    Flashdance was very popular or as we would say in the 80’s totally tublar and so was the off the shoulder sweatshirt Jennifer Beals character wore.

  • Fanny Packs

    Fanny packs were everywhere.  Who doesn’t love an easy way to carry your stuff handsfree! I was in NYC recently and fanny packs are back in a big way.  The trendy way to wear them is across your body vs. across your waist.

     

  • Neon

    When you think 80’s fashion you automatically think NEON…ANYTHING: bracelets, funky earrings, shoes and even undergarments!

  • Swatch Watch

    Who can forget the Swatch Watch? So much personality right on your wrist.

  • Rubber Bracelets

    Madonna introduced us to black rubber bracelets in the 80’s. The more you had the better. Soooo Desperately Seeking Susan.

  • White Keds Sneakers

    The white Ked sneaker was popular in the 50’s and 60’s and made a major comeback in the 80’s. They went with everything, they’re comfortable and Baby wore them in Dirty Dancing!

  • Leg Warmers

    We must discuss leg warmers too. According to Wikipedia, “leg warmers were worn by dancers to keep their muscles from cramping after stretching. In the early 1980s leg warmers became a fad due to the films Fame and Flashdance and the concurrent aerobics craze.”
