When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

Are you sure about that?

80s hands down. For the hair alone- not to mention the MC Hammer pants.

I'll never forget the time I went to the sub shop for a sandwich and the counter girl had this long fluffy hair and her bangs sticking straight up vertical. 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.

To me, the 90's had no look.....just a mish mash of BLAH!!!! At least the 80's (and 70's) had a definite look.

As someone who came of age in the late 80s and early 90s, I can definatively state it is the 80s by a MILE. They aren't even in the same discussion...though I would say as well that the 70s was the worst.

The 90's didn't have any sense of style, whereas the 70's, 80's, and even the 00's had a definable flair.

I prefer the late 50's to early 60's myself, though. The 70's were just so awesome, you KNEW where you were on the timeline!

I'll have you know that is REALLY hard to do. I mean, I heard it from a friend it was really hard to do...

I'd say today's fashions are far worse than the 80's or 90's.

I was totally grunged out in the 90s. Doc Martins with baby doll dresses, the flannel shirts and overalls. Loved it. In the 80s I had the crunchy bangs that we sprayed and then pressed into place with the curling iron, blazers with jeans and fuzzy black boots. That's not something I want to relive, but I don't think it's the worst either. I'd take either back over people wearing pajama pants in public or pants so baggy you can see someone's drawers.

80s. I am a clotheshorse, and I can clearly remember buying virtually no new clothes in the 80s because they were so hideous!

And who's knocking the big jacket & jeans phase? I loved my boyfriend style black blazer and rolled up jeans, that was my look!

That would be "burnt orange" and "avocado"... I agree the 70's beat both the 80's and 90's. If you want a look at how bad tastes were in that decade, see this web site for the book "Interior Descecrations": http://www.lileks.com/institute/interiors/

I gave it to my Mom for Christmas and she laughed so hard she cried.

The 80's had a defined style. Although there were some items that were borrowed from the 60's like the tight jeans (what we now call skinny jeans) and high heel pumps. But other than that, the style was unique.

I'm curious. Besides myself, how many on this thread were either in their teens or 20's during the 80's?
