80's Fashion Making A Comeback!

Fashion and hairstyles have always been cyclical.

In the '80s, baggy pegged-legged pants and padded shouldered jackets were popular. Both of those clothing styles were nothing new, and were a part of American pop culture in the 1940s.

Is '80s style making a comeback?

Neon has popped up periodically over the past decade in U.S. fashion, and recently at the Off-White Menswear Spring Summer 2020 show at Paris Fashion Week, model Gigi Hadid walked the runway with a truly '80s inspired ensemble!

The jacket looks like something I would have wore in the 80s, with black baggy pants, smooth-soled slip-on black shoes, matching socks, and all aimed at the nearest dance floor.

Come to think of it, '80s styled clothes would give a guy (perhaps a woman too) more room to carry a cell phone and gadgets of the day. Plus, the human body had more room to breathe... lol!
