The Eighties

Neon green tights, a washed out jean jacket, permed hair, and a scrunchy. What am I talking about? That's right, the 1980s. The 1960s is my favorite era of fashion, but I have to give a shout out to the crazy styles of the eighties. Who is the one person you should think of when thinking about the decade? Why Madonna, of course. Her dark makeup, curly blond hair, black leather gloves and jacket, and patterned leggings were what girls wanted to look like. And let us not forget the styles worn by Molly Ringwald in movies like Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club. The pink neck-high prom dress was something to be remembered. One can already see how the interesting styles of the time have crept their way back into current fashion in the form of patterned tights and leggings, jean jackets, Ray Ban sunglasses, and, yes, even shoulder pads.
