The Rainbow Connection: Rainbow Shirts

By Lori Ferraro

In the early-to-mid 80s my pre-teen bedroom was overflowing with the following decor:

Hearts
Unicorns
Pegasus
Kittens

and...

RAINBOWS.

From rainbow shoelaces, stickers, barrettes, corkscrew earrings to a felt puffy rainbow wall-hanging above my bed I, along with every other girl in the sixth grade, had rainbow fever.

My love of rainbows could also be seen on my favorite sweater and sweatshirt – did you have one too?

 

Rainbow Sweater

My sweater was off white with rows of colors going across the top half of it. I wore it A LOT mostly with my lavender Osh Kosh pants.

Yes...I wore lavender pants.

I also had a sweatshirt that was white with a rainbow made out of jelly beans being poured like a ray of happiness from the shoulder of the shirt to the bottom of it. That shirt was also awesome and a staple in my wardrobe repertoire – worn and washed so much my mother had to hide it from me to throw it away when it began getting holes in the cuffs and the hem.

Retro rainbow madness is back and it’s easy to find some really cute shirts out there like these:

I’m loving the rainbow resurgence – I mean seriously, doesn’t it just make you happy?

Makes me want to get on my bike with the yellow glitter banana seat and rainbow tassels on the handles and ride off into the sunset.
