This list touches on the crazy things that people did for fashion back in the 80’s, some of them you may remember doing, or remember your parents doing, or have at least seen in photo albums. Today you laugh, or maybe you cry, at how scary fashion was. But then, every once in a while, one of these crazy looks resurfaces and it has you wished you never lived in the 80’s and had those two-story bangs!
These days you are lucky enough to have skinny jeans, which solve this age old dilemma for you. Back in the 80’s, kids had to roll their jeans.
One of the worst fashion trends of the 80’s was the big hair. Many a woman suffocated on Aqua Net hairspray back then.
For guys, instead of big hair, they had rat tails. This look seems to be trying to sneak back into fashion today, sadly.
As if the waist height of 80’s jeans, and the pleats, weren’t bad enough, acid and stone washed jeans were the cool thing to own.
