I Dressed Like It Was 1987

210629 ratings | 5183524 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!

Ok, listen. I'm telling you a story My mom really liked the way 80s hair looked. So when I was ages 3-10 my mom gave me really really curly hair. It gave me an extra inch to me!

Jax Gagnon (10 days ago)
Outfits 1 and 3 are Absolute Looks (TM) I love them at the same time though seeing the Big curly hair reminds me of my neighbor who still does her hair like that. My mom also had a curly perm in the 80s (actually up until around the time she had kids I think so early to late 90s as well) but when she started going to a new dresser he was like "I Will Not do that to your hair"

Grace Giveans (20 days ago)
I think the shoulder pads are starting to come back in, as well as just general 80s fashion. Interesting to see the change coming back, and also how it correlates with more women entering the government this year
Jackie Edgin (20 days ago)

I was a teenager then and basically had short hair because I couldn't really be bothered to do the big hair and I wasn't very good at using a curling iron. I did have a perm for a while though. But I went to school with lots of big haired girls.
Magic Tango (23 days ago)
lol fun series! :)) That acid-wash look is quite the thing! very creative wash :)))

In the 2 years since this video was made 80s fashion has come back in a big way- that says something about human life.
