80's fashion....

It seems to have died down a bit here, but I swear, everywhere I looked this summer, I was seeing clothes that looked like they jumped right out of the 80's. There was a reason this stuff went out of style, why is it coming back? Am I the only one who thinks like this? There's got to be more of you out there, lol.

  • I was an 80's child and loved seeing some of the styles come back with a little twist.

  • I was an 80's child too, and some of the styles are cute. But others, it's like...why?!

  • I think fashion generally cycles about every 20-30 years. So it was time for an 80's-inspired fashion trend to take place. In another 10 or 15 years, there will probably be a resurgence of the 90's grunge style, just updated. I thought a lot of the 80's stuff was pretty cute, but OMG, when I saw an ad with tweens wearing, that was a bit too much. I had some AWESOME legwarmers when I was a kid though :)

  • I only wish the BIG hair would have come back. I know most people are ashamed of having big hair back then, but I loved it and I'm really getting sick of seeing all the teen girls with the stick straight, boring hair... liven it up a bit! Use your imagination and some aquanet for pete's sake!

  • Yep, I remember the 80's and it's definitely back, with a twist.

  • The legwarmers are cracking me up, I loved rockin them when I was a teenager though!! I don't mind a lot of the styles, most have been updated and look better than they did the first time around.
