At least there was a definitive style to the 70's and 80's. The 90's seemed to have been mainly, well, mainly boring. When the first word to describe a decade is "plaid" and the next two are "worn jeans" that doesn't bode well for it in fashion history.

It was like a weird wall of hair on the front of her head. I just looked at the counter and held my laughing inside until my purchase was done and I was back in my car.

The sad thing is that she was probably considered very stylish by her peers for her hair's amazing, gravity-defying verticalness.

Around here they called them "MALL BANGS". My daughter went through the whole gamut of 80's fashions in junior high and high school....from the neon colors to parachute pants to the Madonna stage (six crucifixes around her neck, black lace gloves) and Michael Jackson stage to wearing a dozen watches at the same time to tri-colored hair to really loud Vans shoes and a whole lot more I can't even remember now (thank goodness). As long as she dressed reasonably for school, church, etc., I let her look as crazy as she wanted on the weekends for concerts, dances, parties. I figured that if I gave in on the things that didn't really matter in the long run, I had leverage to "hold fast" on the important things. One day she came home and announced that she was going to shave stripes on the side of her head. I told her she had another think coming. Of course, the old "you never let me do anything" started up. I just gave her "that look" and she sputtered out.....she knew better and I never heard about THAT idea again. She was a good kid, made straight A's and was reasonably easy to live with, so why not let her have a little fun? She turned out pretty darn good, if I do say so myself.

I've been re-watching all of the Beverly Hills 90210 episodes on the Soap Network over the last few months. I watched them all originally, but I am really surprised at the clothes. The '90s were terrible, but also kind of non-descript. The only person on there with any sense of occasional style was Donna/Tori Spelling. But she always had the WORST dance dresses and Halloween costumes .

You're probably right. I couldn't really find a picture of tru 80's style fashions, though, since most television shows didn't dress the kids in what we think of as 80's fashion (Growing Pains, Family Ties, etc. really didn't capture the ugliness of that decade). Then it hit me: Degrassi! I knew that a gis of that wouldn't disappoint. Darned if I wasn't correct!





You are correct about the original pic not being accurate. It sort of reminds me of The Carrie Diaries. They don't look truly 80's on that show, either. Just like they are trying to dress 80's, but not so 80's that they alienate their audience by looking as truly ridiculous as they would have to look if they stay true to the fashion.

I knew a hair stylist that called those the "mall hook". From the side, it looks like a hook - straight up a few inches and then curled back.

So here's some food for thought. Now that we are several years removed from the 00's (2000-2009), what are people going to remember about the fashions of THAT decade?

I seriously can't think of a thing that stands out.

I loved Degrassi Junior High!!

Also, I don't watch The Carrie Diaries, but I watch America's Next Top Model. I caught the ending of a few episodes of The Carrie Diaries, and it really irritates me that it doesn't look remotely '80s-ish.

I don't watch it, either. I watched the first episode and was so irritated at how different they made the character of Carrie that I didn't watch another episode. I just remember noticing that they didn't do 80's fashion so much as 80's fashion with a today-style spin so that it looked a bit more normal. For those who haven't seen, this is what some of the outfits look like:

I don't watch The Carrie Diaries, but yeah that doesn't look like 80s at all to me!

The teenage girl on The Goldbergs has been bugging me since the beginning of the show, because she doesn't look nearly 80s enough, especially the hair.

I'm going to have to go with the 80's. I was busy with 2 little kids during the 90's so unless the fashion was a spit-up stained shirt and sweat pants, I didn't have a clue
