Fashion Decades: The 1980s


When many people think of 1980s fashion, they see big hair, giant shoulder pads, and bright fluorescent colors.  Those trends were all certainly real, but if you look more closely you’ll see a more complicated and diverse picture of the styles of the day.  Punk, hip hop, and even fitness trends evolved over this decade, and on TV, Dynasty’s Alexis Carrington (wearing the fabulous hat in the picture above) brought over-the-top glamour into living rooms every week.  The Adrian G. Marcuse Library has research materials that focus on any aspect of 80s fashion that appeals to you:
