What do the 80's have to do with McCarthyism? Wasn't that in the 50's?

What was the "style" of the 80's, OP? Care to post a couple of pix?

These are some pretty extreme examples. I actually don't mean 80s fashion is still dominant I more meant the attitudes of the 80s especially in regards to economics still seem to be the dominant motifs.

You forgot to mention a lot of the 80's fashion that has slowly been creeping back into wardrobes. Bright colors, stripes, skinny leg pants, ruffled purses, shoes...I was looking at a street fashion blog the other day that consisted of random people on the street, and most looked like they just raided a thrift store filled with 1980s clothing.

Oh yeah, without a doubt. That's been the case since at least 2006, possibly as early as 2004. Prior to that the baggy 90s look ruled.

I think that 80s fashion lasted from about 1981-1992 and 90s fashion from 1993-2003. The current fashion started in 04/05 and is basically a mix of 90s holdovers and 80s comebacks.

2013 - 1980 = 33

1980 - 33 = 1947

Our time now compared to 1980 is like 1980 was to 1947. Weird.

I was pretty young in the eighties, but to me it seems like that was a much different time than now. I definitely know the nineties were different than now as well.

Yeah but styles come back over and over.

I would have thought the opposite. The 80s were a 180 degree turn from the 1970s. The 80s were neon, short hair, dance music, bright lights upbeat, positive while the 70s were denim, stoners, Vietnam protesters, long hair, album rock (though disco was an exception).

In the 80's people went crazy for cocaine and made Pablo Escobar an extremely rich man. That explains 80's hairdos.

I don't see a huge difference between the late 90s and today, but I see a big difference between the early 90s and the late 90s. Wouldn't you agree?
