Awful 80s Fashion #5

It's April Fool's Day and the perfect opportunity for another installment in my series about awful 80's fashion. I'd love to tell you that these fashion nightmares are all jokes, but no, these are all actual garments that real people wore in 1983. I recommend that you don't wear any of this stuff......ever.

It's Batwing Girl to the rescue!

Colorblock gone wrong....very wrong.

Slap a couple of rectangles onto the shoulders of a normal dress and this is what you get.

Purple paisley is not sexy. Neither is tying your pant legs closed.

The caption under this picture in the original mail order catalog says, "No picture can do justice to this long cardigan sweater." I wonder why.

No "Awful 80s" post would be complete without plaid. This time it's turned at an angle and blown up into oversize. How not to wear plaid.

Don't people laugh at you when you have an ibix beak pointing at your boob?

Let this be a lesson to you. If you don't want people to look at your face, wear a bright border print at your hips.
