Celebrities in the 80s both set and followed fashion trends. If you were around in the 80s you probably wore some of these looks, and you probably liked them. Since, these looks have invariably come back, and been lost again. Now you may only see them on Halloween. Some of these looks may be shocking, you’ll ask yourself why you ever followed those trends. Some of them are less shocking, but still crazy fashion trends that are likely to get you some strange looks if you wore them today.
Cyndi Lauper was one of the most popular fashion icons of the 80s when it came to crazy and outrageous looks. From crazy hair colors to a mish-mash of colored clothing, Lauper was definitely a free spirit.
Another huge style icon of the 80s, Madonna wasn’t as colorful as Lauper, but she made the news for being scantily clad, often. As you can see, she had a thing for big bows and bracelets.
Michael Jackson may have had a crazy life towards the end, but he had a pretty crazy wardrobe in the 80s. From red leather and black straight jackets to glitter gear and a single white glove, most of the time he was dressed for attention.
She was Pretty In Pink, and one of the fashion icons of the 80s that didn’t seem to fall into the big hair category. From beaded earrings to florals, Ringwald had an interesting style.
