Top 10 Trends of The 80's - Have We Lost Our Sense of Creativity

The 80's were a time of excess and maximalism for both men and women. As such, the decade featured bold styles, bright colors and eye-catching silhouettes. The 80's also saw a variety of fashion-forward trends, including hop-hop, preppy, workout, rock, and punk styles.

In 2023, we continue to see these trends surface. Is today's youth inspired by the creativity or have they all lost their minds?

With power suites, leather jackets, and athleisure apparel prevalent in today's fashion designs, our future continues to look back to the past for creativity. A lack of creativity in the music we listen to today, the art, or lack of, we glance over and the screen writing we seem to enjoy less and less of in the movie theaters. Sure, we can place blame on pandemics, and technology for changing the world that was, but "Have we all lost our sense of creativity?"

As promised, here is a list of the top 10 trends of the 80's. For those of us who lived it, reminisce, for those of you who are inspired by it - CREATE!
