8 Fashion Mistakes We All Made In The 1980s


5. Leotards

Everyone wanted to wear skin-tight leotards in the 1980s, whether or not they were taking an aerobics class. While leotards have been a staple throughout the years, they were definitely tighter than ever in the ’80s.



6. Oversized Suits

Don’t worry, it wasn’t just women’s fashion that was bad during the 1980s; men’s fashion was equally ugly. Oversized suits were “in” during the ’80s, and some of them even had ridiculous pleats in the pants!



7. Wacky Hair

Obviously the most famously hideous 1980s hairstyle is the mullet, but this is a close second. For some reason, we loved having different lengths of hair during the ’80s! Short on top and long in the back is never a good look — too bad it took us a while to realize what a mistake it was!


8. Huge Wedding Gowns

Wedding dresses during the ’80s were truly one-of-a-kind… and awful! For some reason, we thought all the attention should go to our shoulders, so puffy sleeves were a favorite. Luckily we’ve all moved on from this bad trend!
