1980 - 1990

This decade had everything from neon leg warmers to 'MC Hammer' style trousers! Colour was everything in the 80s, contrasting and clashing were at peak.

1980s fashion had heavy emphasis on expensive dressing and fashion accessories, shiny costume jewelry  like large faux-gold earrings, pearl necklaces and clothing covered with sequins
and diamante.

Punk fashion began as a reaction against both the hippie movement of the past decades and the materialist values of the current decade.

Hair big, curly, bouffant and heavily styled.Television shows such as Dynasty helped popularize the high volume bouffant and glamorous image associated with it.

Make up heavy and bright makeup. Everyday fashion makeup comprised having light-colored lips, dark, thick eyelashes and  blusher.

Shoulder Pads  Female identity in the workplace rose, so did the need to show power and this came in the form of fashion, especially shoulder pads. Usually worn with bow ties, ties or decorative scarves to accessorise

Mini Skirts although many designers tried to drop the mini skirt, in the beginning of the eighties, the public wouldn’t let go of it and it stayed strong throughout the decade. They were popularly paired with leggings, and fish-net tights. 

Leg Warmers were a huge part of eighties fashion that developed from leg warmers worn by dancers for practical uses. Leg warmers of the eighties were neon, patterned and as many
colours as possible. By the mid eighties leg warmers had had their day.

Parachute trousers  Forever to be known as a men’s eighties craze.During the early eighties were tight and shiny made of synthetic material. They were originally designed for break dancers who need trousers that would be versatile and durable. To add detail they were made with added zips for an edgy feel.

Stretch Stirr-up Pants  made of knit fabric that tapers toward the ankle with a stir-up.fashiobale in the mid 80s.
