Why is it that even horrible fashion eras like the 80’s, keep repeating themselves in modern day trends? I mean, the whole Victorian era – gothic repeat, I totally get that. But I don’t understand, when those of us who managed to survive the 80’s nearly unscathed are still among the living to bear witness to the shoulder pad – hairspray nightmare, how this possibly continues to rear its head in modern day fashion.

You know what they say: ‘If you lived through a fashion trend once, you can’t rock it the second time around.’

What do you think? What fashions make you cringe?



  1. Fashions come and go with intense regularity. Its one of the beauties of it. 80’s fashion was certainly out there as it were. It defined a generation in essence. Many things were happening in the world at that time. Reliving these eras is tough. I think the early 00’s will be difficult to inspire the future but we will have to sit tight and see.

  2. Hear you on the shoulder pads! Bell bottoms. Skinny ties. Baseball and gas station shirts. Platform shoes. ‘Mom’ jeans. Velvet. Tankinis. I’m hardly a fashionista, but they’re flattering on nobody and yet these things keep coming back over and over again for some reason.
