Apparently, the sleeveless jacket is a big trend for summer. I graduated High School in 1988. This is NOT a new trend. I find it hilarious that everyone ripped 80′s music and fashion, and it is back with a vengeance.
I loved the 80′s! I was, and always have been pretty mainstream when it comes to music and fashion, as you can probably see in this picture.
I had a really cool sleeveless jacket in pink and green and blue and purple. It was Esprit. Yes, I know you remember that name!
Just keep in mind, in fashion, I guess the rule is that if you wore it during the first fad, you shouldn’t wear it the second time around. I couldn’t fit in my clothes from 1988 if I wanted to. Wait, yes I could.
I also showed up at my kids’ school fundraiser, which was an 80′s Footloose theme. I was led to believe it was a “dress up” event. It wasn’t. I had my faded jeans, big hair, red cowboy boots (from the 80′s) and red Firenza jacket (from the 80′s). I can’t find any pictures, which is a good thing. Plus, I think you probably have the mental image.
What is a trend you would like to see come back?
Which trend should stay gone?
