ITrends in the 1980s continued and intensified those begun in the
1970s. No longer was there a monolithic style line for women.
Instead, fashion was more segmented and women selected from among a
wide variety of alternatives in silhouette, skirt length, and fabrics.
Men and boys' fashions were less diverse.
The major fashion was the ubiquitous blue jeans now stone-washed or
placed and frayed tears.
There is of course a great deal of information available on 1980s
fashions. Unfortunately space limitations do not permit me to
provide more information on the 1980s here. There is,
however, additional information and many historical photographs
on the expanded Boys Historical Clothing web site. For details click
