Fashion in the 80s


Fashion in the 80s was full of colour as new wave washes away the fashion debris left by disco. Neon is the newest color of the rainbow, designers get crazy with jeans, and legs everywhere are getting warmer. Put on a headband and get physical, ’cause the metal is getting heavy and the spandex is getting tight. The 80s decade is all about you. And by you, we mean ME.

  1. Hey Skooldays! We share your passion for 80′s fashion. However the image you have up there was created by us, and is not available for use on other websites. Please remove it from your site. Looking forward to seeing what you create in it’s place. Peace!

    • Hi Mables
      We liked your shop so much we felt it represented 80s clothing well and thereby kept your link to the site mables.com on the 80s image
      A shame to have to loose the potential traffic of our 80s fans – Are you sure you want it removed as all publicity is good publicity?

  2. Hey thanks for the reply! You’re welcome to keep the image up if you add an HTML link back to mables.com from this page. The watermark on the image isn’t really legible at that size/quality. Thank you for using the Golden Rule! :)

  3. Its nice to hear about 80′s dresses . And I think we should continue remembering and wearing those dresses that could attract women’s fashion
