  • i think whats hilarious is that men used to wear tiny shorts and women wore baggy oversized shorts. and now it's opposite, men wear shorts that are half pants and women wear shorts that are barely there. also, the style for women back then was high pants and short shirts, and now it's the opposite, low rise pants and long shirts. i think the low rise pants look so much better (as long as u have the body for it. i have a belly pudge so i dont wear super low pants but i still would never wear pants above my belly button) the feathered bangs were also hilarious and just perms in general make me laugh

  • Haha! I wore ugly plaid flannel button down shirts left open over weird t-shirts. I also wore gigantic Jnco jeans... It looks so silly. I don't know if it looked any cooler back then. I was sooo grunge that I didn't care. LOL!

  • Late 80's, I was totally into spandex. And big, teased hair. The I went through the grunge phase of flannel and ripped jeans in the early 90's.

  • I loved banana clips!! They looked so good with my perm! How about the Flashdance shirts? I had one with a glittery cat on it. And combs in the back pocket.... the bigger the better. (Mine was orange with Ziggy on it)

  • I soooo rocked the big bangs! And I gotta give it up for the 'Seattle grunge look" (shorts with a long sleeved plaid/flannel shirt and combat boots) that i wore constantly as my retaliation against "the man" LOL
