There are definitely certain styles and trends that have a direction relation to the 80s. These styles and trends have slightly made their way back into the present day, but the excitement surrounding them will never compare to the original decade.
“The ’80s meant neon brights and big hair, it was a time when punk and new wave fashions ruled. Los Angeles was at the forefront of the movement with Melrose Avenue brimming with the hottest new fashions and the Sunset Strip exploding with music we had never heard before,” according to ABC 7’s KABC.
“In this episode, take a walk down memory lane to one of the greatest decades ever! The trends, the music, the movies, the people, and the parties, we’ve got it all! Including some bonus treasures of vintage Eye on L.A. footage from the ’80s!”
ABC 7’s Tina Malave got all dressed up in her 80s fashion to explore the decade of big hair, colorful fashion and culture.
