During the 80’s however, is a very different thing when it comes to fashion. It is the era where a lot of styles where trendy. Think leg warmers, acid washed jeans and some shoulder pads. Not to mention members only jackets, oversized tops, mini skirts, and stretch stirrup pants. It is entirely different from the roaring twenties. It is a new era in fashion indeed. The leg warmers were not only for aerobics that time but an actual fashion statement. It is usually paired with mini skirts. Off shoulder tunics were also a fad during that era. Everything during that era was colorful. Colors mixed together, vibrant and fun. These are just a few things about the fashion in the eighties.
