Greetings Fashion Divas,
Now I think we can all agree that the '80s are here to stay for another season, at least. Which is definitely all right with me since I'm all for this decade (80s baby rule!!!). There was the adulation of rock stars, women were leaving the household to go to work, and Lycra and animal prints ruled. Punk was another awesome style that came on to the scene in this era and literally revolutionized the younger generation's self expression.
With that being said, let's catch up with mainstream society and scope out some 80s items.
