….you wear denim jackets and fringe.
I became an ’80s child 33 years ago…to this day to be exact. That is probably why I have always been obsessed with all things ’80s…music, fashion, totally rad slang, and, duh, movies. (Like how I threw in said ’80s slang there?) I recently made my husband watch Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and St. Elmo’s Fire because they’re classics and I can’t believe anyone could go through life without seeing them. When he tried to argue that these movies are not actually classics, I told him to “Eat my shorts.”
While I was not truly old enough to fully embrace 1980s fashion (I was 8 once we hit the ’90s), I had an older cousin, who was like a sister to me, that I admired so much and I always told myself I was going to dress just like her when I grew up. Well, now ’80s trends are making a comeback and I will proudly wear my denim jacket, fringe and aviators just like I always knew I would.
