'80s Fashion Trends

Black and white striped shirts.
'80s Fashion

In the world of fashion, almost everything is recycled. That hot new trend you've latched onto probably isn't new - it just found its way back to a store near you. Guess which era is makin' a huge comeback for spring and summer 2004? The tacky, wacky '80s, baby! Get ready for stripes, leg warmers, a rainbow of jelly bracelet colors and a whole lot more.


'80s Fashion Trends - Black & White and Striped All Over

Black and white is all the rage, especially stripes. Thin stripes, fat stripes, vertical and horizontal striped T-shirts and skirts are H-O-T-T. You're also going to find that a lot of clothes will be made from body-clinging fabrics like Lycra or spandex, which were super-popular in the '80s. Oh, and don't forget to leave some room in your closet for multi-colored stripes too!

'80s Fashion Trends - The Bigger the Better

Ok, we're talking earrings here ladies. Earrings with attitude. If your earrings are hiding behind your hair, they just aren't big enough. Whether they're hoops or just kind of crazy and dangly - you wanna make a statement with 'em. Match the color with your shirt or maybe with your shoes. Just make sure they stand out!


'80s Fashion Trends - Jelly Bracelets & Fishnet Stockings

Madonna set the trend back in the day by wearing an armful of jelly bracelets (which are actually made of rubber or plastic) and now you can load up on 'em too. Pair them up with a black and white stretch shirt or a pair of colorful fishnet stockings. Fishnets will really add some extra flair to your outfit.


'80s Fashion Trends - Floral Prints

Button-down shirts, skirts and dresses in floral patterns are a must-have - just don't over do it. One dress and/or shirt will be good for the season. Make sure you don't get decked out in floral from head to toe. If you have a floral skirt, pair it up with a solid color top, so your outfit won't be too busy.


'80s Fashion Trends - Leg Warmers and Chucks

While summer is on the horizon, there are still some chilly spring days to brave before it arrives. So why not keep warm and look fashionable with a cute pair of leg warmers? Pair them with with a skirt (you could even put them over your fishnets), and you've got an outfit that'll turn heads. Now the only thing you need is the right footwear and you'll be unstoppable. A closet full of '80s clothing just wouldn't be complete without a pair of Chucks (Converse high tops). These versitile kicks look great with just about everything and they come in every color under the rainbow.

It'd be easier to picture it if I could see the shirt. xD But chances are it'd look good. Put the lace or bows on the shirt without sewing it on and see how it looks :p

Of course you are not pregnant!!! If you just started having period, it is irregular and in the beginning can look quite strange. Don't worry! But i think you should talk with your mum, go to the doctor to check if everything is ok inside of your body and simply to have support from her.
