'80s Fashion Trends

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.

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
