A few days ago I came across some sketches of the 80's fashion. In fewer words: almost all the trends that at the present time are more then OUT! But (yes, as always there is a but) trends like shoulder-pads, overalls, capes are so out that they are IN.
Me too...even so, I like it. Now don't imagine you'll wear the same 80's clothes. Look for ones that got their inspiration from that period. It's fun, geeky and...i guess fashionable!
