Fashion in the 1980s was an obvious evolution of the far out fashion from the 60s and 70s. Women of the 80s usually wore bright neon colors and ripped sleeves or tights. Chicks also colored their hair in styles that would seem strange to us nowadays, and everyone had an obsession with metallic shirts and pants. Female fashion in the 80s consisted of neon-colored legwarmers and an exorbitant amount of bracelets to complement outfits that already looked absurd.
There seemed to exist a fine line between absurdity and glamorous, though. Guys loved dress up like glam rockers for some reason, and some even enjoyed dressing up as Michael Jackson, the King of Pop. Toward the end of the 1980s, hip hop music began to catch on, and 80s fashion began to change drastically. Hip hop artists helped popularize baggy clothing, and it was Hammertime before we knew it.
