The 80s fashion fabric trends:
Other than the diverse hair trends, the 80s fashion was also characterized by different fabric trends throughout the decade.  Actually, fabrics were the greatest trendsetters in this fashion.  Most fabrics especially those worn by women ranged from horrid styles to classically sexy trends with the latter being common among celebrities and artists.  One of the most common types of fabric in this fashion was the metallic material fabrics that were threaded using gold threads.  These outfits were a favorite night and party time fabric because they sparkled under dance lights in clubs and other entertainment joints.

The 80sfashion was exceptionally impressive as compared to fashions in the previous decades.  The clothes worn in this fashion had a strong contrast and classic juxtaposition in colors such as black and white.  While the present day fashion is greatly diversified, most of its roots are in the 80s fashion
