Some trends you hope never return
This should be a fun list! so many questionable trends were spawned in the 80's, that I feel I must start there (also, because I was a teenager during that decade, I have worn possibly all of the trends...loving it, at the time!:happy: )

Parachute pants. Or, "MC Hammer pants" ... same thing.
These didn't look good on anybody. (not even MC Hammer:happy: ). I really hope these don't make their way back into mainstream fashion, and if they do, rest assured i won't be partaking.

Gargantuan shoulder pads that looked anything but feminine!

*GASP* Bellbottoms and choker necklaces??? I love both of those.

....and whether they are currently trendy or not I'd wear 'em. Not a trend whore, but I love it when stuff comes back in style because that's the only time you can find it in the stores!! :grinhappy:

Leisure suits for men! GAH:drool:

Micro Mini skirts/dresses.


Wearing your underwear for clothes

Too late, Gaucho pants came back from the 70s. :drool:

Yes, I agree about the 80s stuff, none of that was attractive.

Belly shirts flattered no one but fitness models.

Ugg boots are ugly.

High-rise, tapered leg pants.

I have been reading that women have rebelled against low-rise pants, so jeans-makers are bringing back mid-rise. Yay!

I don't know if this was popular in the 80s or not...but if I see those tacky leggings under a skirt again ever on campus, I just might go crazy. I haven't seen a lot of that style for quite awhile. Thank God! But it is UGLY!

And I love bellbottoms...chokers are okay if I can find a decent one. :drool:

Ditto on that one!:depressed:

And ditto on Cichlid's leggins, too. Those have been REALLY popular during spring here, and no one looks good in them. I also don't like the shorts+stockings look.
