It seems like every decade has its fashion dos and don’ts, however, one has to distance themselves from that specific period of time to realize how cool or ridiculous the trends of that time actually were. The 80s were an especially flamboyant time for fashion. From neon colors to jheri curls to leg warmers and everything else in between, the 80s were all about gaudy, excessive style. In honor of the 80s, this week’s #TBT is here to remind us of ten fashion trends from the era of hair rock and new wave. Here they are in no particular order:

    Everything on that list except for arduous wash jeans ours back in again. I think in this day in age, anything previously done its a go, but it has to be modernized to look chic.
