LOL. Your pictures sure bring back memories. I used to love jellies, and alot of girls I knew wore leggings under denim shorts and skirts.  I never did the sock thing, but I remember that the pegged pants look, unfortunatley, carried over into the early 90's.  In fact you weren't cool in my middle school, unless you had at least 7 or 8 safety pins tapering the legs of your jeans.  It looked ridiculous.  The hair definately takes me back.  I knew alot of people who would go and get body perms to get their hair to look like that. Those who couldn't afford a perm used to get the same effect from a crimping iron.  Remember those?  Sadly the bad hair carried into the early 90's as well. I remember girls would take just their bangs and tease them up so high, that they were almost standing on end.  Then they would set in with almost and entire can of hairspray.  It looked aweful.  They had smooth and shiny hair with sky high hard as a rock bangs.  Yikes.

Quoting Traci_Momof2:

I was born in '75 but since very few people remember the first few years of life, I grew up in the 80's.  I had things like Jelly Shoes

And lace bottom bike shorts (pictured here under jean shorts but more often worn under shorter skirts):

I pegged my jeans:

And wore layered scrunchie socks over them:

I also teased my hair up and out.  The bigger the better.
  (Not me btw - just a pic I found online to illustrate)

 

Those of you born too far into the 80's to remember any of it, you missed out on some GOOD TIMES!  However, the 80's belong back in the 80's and I loathe all the 80's styles coming back into fashion now.  YUCK!

Nope, I'm a 70's baby, but my hubby is an 80's baby. ;)
I remember the 80's well though, I don't remember the 70's at all, I was too young.
