Vote for Your Favorite 80s Fashion

80s fashion had so much to offer, it is impossible to narrow it down to just a few trends.  But, we’re not going to let that stop us.  We’ve picked 9 of the best for this first round, trying to include both gal and dude fashions (happily lots of 80s fashions were unisex) and need your help in picking a winner.  If you don’t see your favorite below, suggest a trend in the comments.  We’ll have a Round 2 based on your comments and any write-in votes.  Then, based on the results of the two rounds, we’ll have a Final Round to crown our favorite 80s fashion trend.

If you are like me, you wore most of these trends at one time or another, often times several of them together.  Nothing goes with some Jams quite like a Swatch and a pair of Wayfarers.  Am I right?

Just a little obsessed with all things 80s, Pia still has her Swatch, her cassette tape collection, and her Converse Chucks. When not making friendship pins or listening to Depeche Mode, she runs a web design business.

  1. I still wear a Swatch, Wayfarers, and Members Only Jackets today!

    I would definitely add Lacoste (Izod) “alligator” polo shirts (still wear these, too- but no popped collar anymore…) and those awesome 2 color “Coca Cola” long sleeve shirts as my favorite 80’s fashions.

  2. How about rah-rah skirts? They were always great with a t-shirt and combat boots. There’s still a few in my closet right now, next to the t-shirts and combat boots.

  6. Great site, love it.

    My personal favorites are knee-length culottes & the oversized long coats with extreme shoulder pads….Not worn together though.
