1980’s fashion was big, it was bright, and it was loud! If you were around in the 1980’s then you would no doubt have worn some very large tops, perhaps some huge earrings (Even if you’re a man) and chances are you would have felt good about wearing them too.

Looking Back At The 80’s

When we look back at 1980’s fashion, it’s clear to see it’s all about making a statement with the biggest pair of shoulder pads you can find, to fit on your huge oversized shirt, to be worn over your stirrup pants. This is what 80’s fashion was, and it was a decade that still influences how we dress decades later.

With a huge emphasis on expensive clothes and huge earrings, the 80’s is a decade that’s not likely to be forgotten in the fashion industry. With TV shows such as ‘Dynasty’ making such an impact on what people wore, it was no wonder the clothes, the make-up and the hair styles became so popular.

Making A Statement

If you wanted to make a statement through your clothing in the 1980’s you had a lot of choice. Clothes were large, bright and expensive, but they also looked like nothing you had ever seen before.

There were also must-have 80s accessories that were key to being en vogue. Huge shoulder pads let people know you were serious, they told them you meant business, and it wasn’t uncommon for people to wear two pairs of shoulder pads at any one time.

Large earrings meant you had status and you wanted to be noticed. Some were so large they were nicknamed ‘Door knockers’ and would be so big they were shoulder length.

Fingerless gloves became increasingly popular thanks to the large number of pop and punk stars who were seen to be wearing them in fashion shoots.

Parachute pants were big, they were baggy and they were what you had to wear if you wanted to dance and move easily. They came in many different colors and even had fake zippers and pockets that added something special to the outfit.
