The ’80s. It was a strange time for clothes – strangely amazing. Windbreakers were enjoying their heyday; jumpers had never been louder. And as for dresses, there were slinky little numbers, along with floral floaty things aplenty. Slipping into such threads on a daily basis must have been a delight, had you been an adult at the time. (Doing so as a kid was certainly, as we used to say, gnarly.)
If you’d like to enjoy the experience first-hand, invent a DeLorean that travels through time when it hits 88 miles per hour – or, visit Shop Twitch Vintage, an online clothing store specialising in retro duds from the era of Prince, Wham and early Madonna. It’s based in Tampa, Florida, and has more treasures than your wardrobe could possibly contain.
