I Dressed Like It Was 1987

207450 ratings | 5038633 views
I styled 3 outfits inspired by the popular fashions of thirty years ago! From the hair metal rockers and groupies, to blazer-clad working ladies and teen pop idols decked out in acid wash jeans, I had a great time pretending it was 1987 and exploring fashion history through one of the most iconic decades - the 80s. Let me know what you think of my ~lookbook~ and if you want to see more of these! A huge thanks to Kayley Melissa for rocking out this 80s hair!

First one, You almost nailed it. you forgot the shirt under the laced shirt. You did pull of the 80's hooker though.. lol.. Lace was cool, but it was still a reserved look at the time.. boobs and stomachs were covered under the lace. bare laced arms and shoulders were fine, but the parents of girls in the 80's would have backhanded them before they got out of the house if they were wearing what you are. lol Nailed the acid wash.

Thank God I was just a baby in the 80s. The fashion, the hair, the makeup.. everything was just so utterly ridiculous haha! I do love watching these videos though, very well researched and executed.

Becky Miller (5 days ago)
The 80s weren’t so nice to my hair. However it was already big so I didn’t have a hole lot of work to do. Lol. It was the 90s that killed me. It was so uncool to have my big head of unruly hair.

Oddly enough when I think of the 80s I think of the how woman dressed for office work in the 80s it’s almost similar to how some rockstars dressed almost

In the working girl outfit, with your hair and makeup, you look so much like Nina from the Americans. I think you look great! Actually you rocked all the 80-ies looks!

It’s been a year since you did these “fashion by the decade” videos and I want more! Since u did videos for the latter part of each decade in the first series, next u should do another series featuring fashions from the early parts of each decade, like maybe 1962, 1972, 1982, 1992, 2002, & 2012! I know 5 years doesn’t seem like much of a difference, but it is. Having grown up in the 90s myself, I know there’s a big difference between what was in style in 1992 vs 1997... in 1997 we wore Asian & 70s inspired polyester & “childish” things (butterfly clips, or think baby spice)... But in 1992 there were a lot of leftover 80s fashions like neon colors /color-blocking & stirrup pants (think salt n peppa) with some new ideas (hammer pants anyone!) but there was a big transition into grunge with baggier clothes and flannel combined with more subtle flowy feminine pieces like the “blossom” hats with the big sunflowers and spaghetti strap shift dresses (I think the show that best illustrates the convergence of grunge & feminine floral patterns & girlie accessories that was happening at the time would be “my so-called life”). So many ideas!

You honestly looked really cute with every hair choice! You could totally rock any of them. All of the looks could be pretty wareable still with a little tweaking. Good job!
Emma S (12 days ago)
I was born in 82 and this brings it all back to me. From northern Ireland the fashion it was hard to get these pieces as they were either expensive or it didn't come to the UK at all. I remember my hair in a ponytail and it was down to the backs of my knees it never held a curl or roller at all. I just rocked the jeans dungarees tomboy look. Rough and tumble clothes. I do remember wanting to look like my aunts fashion but did love princess bride and Victorian pirate sleeved shirts and Goth vibes even then. Long as hell hair and a waistcoat for a wedding guest look. Epic

Earlier in the school year, during Homecoming week, there was a different theme that students could dress in. Wednesday, the theme was 80s vs. 70s. I chose 80s. I knew everyone would be wearing neon colors. I chose to do 80s Glam Metal. I already owned a leather jacket, similar boots, and faux leather leggings. I used A LOT of hairspray for the volume. I also followed an 80s Glam Metal make up tutorial, and added a black lip. Then I got into Heavy Metal.... My mom regrets it, because I then started listening to Marilyn Manson.... My brother said "Finally, my little sister has some taste" when he found out that I listen to Heavy Metal, and other Bands that play similar music genres.
