Skinny leather ties? Striped knickerbockers? Snoods?

I KNOW. It's fingerless mittens. Black lace for extra 80s nastiness.

Knickerbockers - we called them pedal pushers. Stripey trousers - had a few pairs of those.

ps: am about to sew some knickerbockers for DS to wear in his school play. I'm that self-actualised

What about those enormous t-shirts that you tied up in a knot at the side?

Ruffle-necked Lady Di blouses...
Maybe it's Camilla who's bringing them back into fashion

Big bows in your hair, a la Fergie!

All these things are still being worn in Hoxton Square of a Friday night, you know

Mirage Fri 18-Feb-05 16:32:52

Soupdragon & Dyzzidi Are right!

I just could not believe it!!!!!!!! Apparently they are all over the catwalks this season & will be appearing in the shops in the next few months.Arghhhh can't believe that anyone would dregde those things back up again.

The rest of the things mentioned here bought back some horrid memories of what I used to wear,but even I didn't wear puffball skirts.

aaaaw! I was hoping it would be huge shoulder pads, trousers with pleated tops and narrow ankles in loud prints, and ankle boots.
