Retro 80s Clothes, Part 1

I stumbled upon a relatively lo-tech website, In The 80s today while looking for stuff about I.O.U. shirts. They also have a section for the 70s and 90s.

I was born in the late 70s, so I mostly came of age in the mid-80s through the 90s. I came upon so many things on this website that I haven’t thought of in years! I’m going to start on a little segment of visual retrospectives of these different things. I will start with 80s clothing that I remember using myself or seeing around my school:

Charm Necklaces, I had at least one or two of these myself and hadn’t thought of them since seeing them here

Cross Colours

Electric Youth Perfume

Exclamation! Perfume

Fido Dido

Freezy Freakies

Friendship bracelets

Hypercolor Shirts

IOU Shirts


Jelly bracelets
