If you grew up in the 1980’s there are many things that are hard to forget. For one, it’s not easy to explain fashion’s love of the big shoulder pads and super baggy genie pants. Everything about the 80’s was over the top.
From the big hair, bold makeup, and bright neon colours, this time was not for the faint of heart. Yet, one thing this decade can boast like no other is it’s awesome music with fun and cool lyrics.
