Fashion history 

Fashion in the 1980s 

The 1980s was a decade characterized by a variety of fashion looks that ran parallel to each other, and women of this period began to feel that they really could choose from one of the various contrasting looks available. 

Fashion in the 1980s was bold and glitzy, everything was bigger, and one of the most powerful features over this decade were a tailored style, and the shoulders pads worn by both men and women to give a wide shoulder look. Throughout the 1980s, the emphasis on flashy, expensive dressing extended to fashion accessories. It was hard to go anywhere without at least a jacket, but preferably a complete suit. The opulent jewellery and accessories were intended to tell the rest of the world you had arrived. Fashion in the 1980s was influenced by several movements, including media influence through the popularity of TV dramas and their costumes, which brought fashion into real everyday eighties life. Lavish costume and jewellery were used on the show and it drifted into mainstream fashion. Rather big gilt fashion earrings several centimetres across drew attention to faces. Stiff, sharply-cut suits were popular with businessmen and women. Power suits were designed to make the wearer look successful and authoritative. Women expressed an image of wealth and success through shiny costume and jewellery, like large faux-gold earrings, pearl necklaces and clothing covered with sequins and diamantes. Buttons, belts, bags and shoes were also often metallic and showy.
