here’s what you wore if you were rad in the ’80s


Time travel isn’t yet feasible – at least, as far as we know. But we can still imagine how life might have been in another era. These home photos tell the tale of how you might have dressed had you come of age during the heyday of Prince, Madonna and Cyndi Lauper (all of whom we try to channel on a daily basis, incidentally). Conveniently, this archive shows an array of duds, including those you lounged about the house in, those you wore to your formal, and those you wore when casually leaning up against a Billy Idol poster. You can see more over here, and you probably should, too; we suspect it’s good for your soul.
