    I used to love girls in those jumper dresses (c.1980/1).
    just a extra long tight fitting jumper,but damn sexy to a 14 year old!!

    Bat wing jumpers, scarves tied in my hair..(what was I doing??), neon laces in trainers, (odd of course) braces..I gave them up in the end as I had bruises on my back from where people 'pinged' them, waistcoats (used to get them from Oxfam). I didn't wear it but at my school you HAD to have a Head or Puma sports bag, some were so big we could fit the smaller kids inside them.

    Early 80s - Ski Jumper!

    Mid 80s- Lois Jeans, Nike trainers 'La Coste' V neck (M+s jumper with croc iron on logo got of a dodgey wideboy at school!)

    Very Late 80s - Travel Fox trainers. A bit like a leather converse all star, with big tongues- these were sh*t hot at the time!!

    Oh I think we ALL had the infamous reversible 101 Dalmations Sweatshirt!!! What was that about???

    My personal favourites though were

    Deeliboppers (more an accessory than clothes)
    The Snood (is it a scarf? is it a hat? Is it a mini skirt?)

    I was born in 80, so I had the misfortune of a reversable 101 dalmations sweatshirt - along with about 8000 other people.

    Also those magic shoes from Clarkes with a key in the bottom in a bubble. I went mad for them, and my mum wouldn't let me have them because they were slingbacks!

    To think that all of these are so retro they're desirable again!!!

    I personally think that most 80's fashion was bad enough the 1st time!

    I soooo desperately wanted a puffball skirt and only got a 2nd hand ra-ra when it was out of fashion!
