    Re: What were your favourite 80s clothes?

    i was made to wear my uniform at school which looking back wasn't a bad idea. I even had a pair of John Player trainers nicked out of my p e bag and they cost about 6 from the local market in 1981. After school though my favourite stuff was mod gear. Winklepickers, petrol and wine 2 tones, blue fred perry with either Y cardigan or slazenger jumper or half collar shirt with Madness tie and fishtail parka.

        Oh dear, I was a bit of a non-conformist Im afraid,tatty leather bikers jacket,oily jeans,Kiss t-shirt,scruffy biker boots and half a gallon of patcholey oil. A friend and I was suspended for not visiting the barbers as often as we should have and after lots of protests about sexual discrimination the head paid for us to have it cut,I gave in but my friend came out with a scruffy perm which cost about 20.

            oh my god, this brings back memories

            the Bright terry towelling socks i must have had drawers full of them and they had to be worn odd that was so cooollll.......

            Definately the ra ra skirts. Mine was blue and white stripes and spots.

            Does anyone remember the hypo global colour changing t-shirt, they were wicked mine changed 3 colours. The only downfall people could see where you were sweating, but who cared when you were a kid that was the last thing you thought about.

            I always seemed to be collecting and wearing sweat bands too with duran duran wrote on them and badges.

                I vividly remember having an Ivan Lendl Adidas Tee Shirt. Looked ace, especially with the acid washed, skin tight jeans and a pair of Samba.

                        Oh dear God. I had a pair of white Pierre Cardin men's boots. I had seen a picture of Ralf Hutter from Kraftwerk with a pair, and I just HAD to get some.

                        I was the laughing stock of the entire planet.

                          I dearly regret getting rid of my beautiful white "pirate" frilly blouse from Chelsea Girl - I kept it for YEARS after the fashion had moved on, out of sentimentality, got rid in a tidying fit when moving and have regretted it ever since. I wore it with aubergine-coloured baggy sateen trousers, a silk scarf for a sash around my waist, my black pixie boots that I wore til they fell apart, and more often than not a headband of some description. All with too much make-up of course, and back-combed hair. Thought I was the bees knees.

                          The other cherished item of clothing was a pair of skintight black jeans, even more so when the knees went and my dad - a tailor - sewed black leather patches on to the knees, they were rectangular and ran across the knees from seam to seam - again, I was the dogs' in those, usually worn with a huge bloke's sweater and a black corduroy fisherman's peaked hat (like the one Nick Heyward from Haircut 100 wore), or else with a white linen vest when out dancing.

                          Final relic from my 80's days - which I still have! - is an old black shift dress that had been my mum's. It has hanging black beads on it, and looked fab with fishnet tights and court shoes. When my hair wasn't backcombed it was a wedge like Joanne Catherall from the Human League. I was the spit of Shaz from Ashes To Ashes for a while.

                                Thanks for reminding me of my lovely 101 Dalmations reversible sweatshirt - I loved that top, was lovely and warm.
                                I had a lovely pair of navy blue Knickerbockers for dressy occasions - early 80's.
                                An orange ra-ra skirt - each tier was a different shade - early 80's
                                Loved my purple jumpsuit, had a royal blue one too, but it wasn't as comfy - mid 80's.
                                Dusky pink checked party dress, which had a netted underskirt to give it more a full look - it was from C&A, mid 80's.
                                Ski jackets from C&A - had a pearlesent purple, royal blue one and a pink one - late 80's.
                                Black Shellsuit with yellow and green stripes - very late 80's.
                                Various jogging suits.
                                White sweatshirt with 'Neighbours' logo on it.
                                Bermuda shorts in black with fluoresent shapes all over them - v. late 80's/early 90's.
                                A blue glittery snood - mid to late 80's from Mckay's (now m&co).
