80s Clothes are back!
80s fashion seems have began reappearing again in lots of stores and on the runway.
Today we will remind ourselves of what is the ultimate in 80 clothing
Legwarmers were very much an 80s clothing icon. An elongated tube of knitted cotton (or daycron/polyester blend, as seemed to be the preferred concoction), the legwarmer was worn scrunched down on the calf and onto the ankle, over the shoe. Whether or not the leg needed to be kept warm didn’t really matter. You looked cool with leg warmers in these 80s clothes.
Clothing and fashion for the 80s had to include Scrunchies They were created fashionable locks for the plain ponytail via a ‘scrunched’ tube of material. The fabric shell covered a circle of elastic and protected the hair from getting twisted in the thin rings. No more tangled, twisted hairs caught between the rubber of old elastic hairbands, or hair pulled to a headache-inducing tightness.
Another essential fashion label for an 80s clothes outfit was Benetton
A fashion-forward apparel company, Benetton found incredible success in the U.S. when the lure of Eurochic wooed the 80’s. The company capitalized on the growing obsession with both European style and social awareness, creating clothes in bold colors and sophisticated shapes.
Clothing for bicycles changed in the eighties. The problem with bicycle shorts was that they left nothing to the imagination. Whether in shiny spandex or soft cotton lycra, the snug fit was like a second skin. Undeterred from wearing the slim shorts, the athletically challenged solved the problem by layering a long and baggy t-shirt over the most vital areas. All hail the mighty t-shirt from the 1980s.
