I'm still a teenager (16) and I'd say that my style is pretty simple. I'm not in to the low/high-ride stuff, super tight/lose shirt, or anything else that's in style right now for that matter. A pole shirt and skirt and I'm good (and not mini skirts either)

boy o' boy this really dates me. I remember wearing bell bottom hip huggers with body suits. a shoulder strap purse that was suede with fringes and had a peace symbol stamped on the front. when we went to the clubs I wore hunter green velvet hot pants (shorty shorts) and body suits. For shoes we wore platform boots that went to the knee. If I only that body now!!!!

I was a late 80's early 90's teen. It was all about the grunge and heavy metal for me. I hung out with the stoner crowd, had big teased fluff chick hair, tight jeans, band t-shirt and my dad's flannel shirt. I went to a Catholic high school so we could only express ourselves on dress down day. I love the skull fashion thing going on now, but I have to keep reminding myself that I'm not a kid anymore and I don't want to look stupid wearing that stuff.

Everybody wore "Ditto" pants. They had then in all sorts of colors. They went to the waist, had no pockets and flared at the bottom. That was in the mid 70's.

What a fun thread!

I'm a 60s/70s person who wore tie dyed shirts, peasant shirts, embroidered anything, long dangling earrings, and long bell bottomed jeans that dragged on the ground because I couldn't be bothered to hem them.

I also had hot pants that I wore with body shirts, midriff shirts, and high, high platform shoes.

We still have those rainbow sheets and still use them. They're soft, a bit thread-bare, but make us smile.

No one has mentioned white lipstick, blue eyeliner, blue mascara or ironing your hair/putting it on coffee cans to straighten it.

I was really happy when flare jeans came back into fashion and I still like platforms. But at 5'1", I'll take all the vertical assistance that I can!

I used orange juice cans to straighten my hair, white lipstick and had a peace sign on the back pocket of my jeans. Plaid or flowered (big flowers) bellbottoms and slinging your hair over your shoulder was stylin'. Egads.

I'm only 23, so this wasn't too long ago. I was all about Abercrombie - I would walk into their store, and be wearing the same outfit as the model on the wall. This was before they charged $40 for a tank top. I remember getting shirts from there for $15 and jeans were like $30!

OH MY GOSH - I thought I was the only one!

AND........I remember cutting a slit (about 12 inches from the hem up) on the outside of jeans and sewing a triangle of printed fabric into it to make your jeans bell bottomed, funky (and looking back - hideous).

Thanks for this walk down memory lane......I think. LOL!

[QUOTE=tchk;11149196 Bermuda bags (and I still have those, with all the covers!).[/QUOTE]

Oh Sophie this is a fab thread. Funny Bermuda bags are mentioned. I found the pattern I used to make mine just the other day!! Wierd eh?
I remember...Ben Casey blouses, white bucks, scorts, clam-diggers, madras and paisley! Pop-tops & ribticklers, tie-dyed everything, go-go boots (mine were white with elastic tops very shiny), your Dad's plaid shirt and short shorts, flavoured lipstick.. I think Clairol made it..mine was called orange kiss! We used to button our 'banlon' cardigan and wear the buttons down the back instead of the front...what a rebel!!!!

Another 70's kid here, I am howling over sewing the material on the bottom of the jeans and also inserting the fabric to make the 'bell' bigger, I did both of those. Also, peace sign emblems sewn on the pocket, I still have mine in my jewelery box!! As a kid though I remember 2 favorite dresses, one was a blue 'tent' dress (remember those) I was flat chested so I thought it made me look bigger! Little did I realize my whole body looked big and then I had these stick arms and legs sticking out! The second one was red velvet looking material on the top and red polka dots on white on the bottom. It was my best dress and I still love polka dots!
Thanks for this stroll down memory lane!

THIS EXPLAINS SO MUCH! My hubby always wants his slacks to be to the floor in the back. The goofy thing is, he determines the length by leaning over to see how long they are. Well, when you bend over to look, they rise up! Of course they look shorter. Oh, and when you sit down they rise, and he doesn't like that look, so I end up hemming them to where the hem drags the floor. He wears out the fabric that way, of course. GRRRRRR! He graduated in 76 but should've been 75. This MUST be a throwback to high school days!

The girl teens I'm around these days all seem to wear the same thing: low rise jeans with large (not necessarily bell, but close) leg bottoms and tight t-shirts in just about any design or color. The boys wear t-shirts & usually kind of baggy jeans that hit the floor. Didn't they learn ANYTHING from watching us go through this? LOL! Some boys wear those really tight legged jeans. It's often the tall skinny guys, and my 12 year old dd & I think they look, well, kind of odd on guys. It's like leggings for boys. man leggings---can we call them meggings? This dd & I call those "shut up" pants. She was pulling on a pair of leggings (she is rather pixie like in size and that is one of the few styles we can find to fit her). She was mad b/c it wouldn't go over her foot. The worst thing she could think to say was, "Shut up!" So I asked her, "Oh, are you wearing shut up pants today?" That got her out of her anger & since then we call those shut up pants.

when I was a teen, the Gloria Vanderbilt Jeans (they were one of the few brands that fit my legs that apparently start at my neck---yes, very long legs) were in. Loved the Laura Ashley look, though I never owned any, I made some with patterns. Or Gunne Sax. Anything ruffly & floral. I still like that look. I guess I"m with Sophie on this! I remember shirts that had puffy sleeves. Also, there were these shirts that didn't button in the middle, but they'd button on one side or the other down the front (like right over your boobs). Oh, gauchos were in when I was in jr. high & then knickers in high school. Or maybe they weren't & I just wore them!

Funny thing is about the shoes, the style came back. When my kids and I are shopping, I show them and let them know that was the style I had growing up. I wouldn't be able to wear them today though.

Bonnie
OMG. You're the first person in decades to know what Dittos are! Cool! I had every single color they made and they were so hot. These days, that loop on the tush there wouldn't be the where it belonged, that's for sure!

When those bear trap shoes came back in, I passed. I'd been through it once before and didn't want to do it again -- like the blue eyeshadow.

I dressed very preppy in high school, and I think I still do, I own at least 4 polo shirts now.
Just as long as you don't turn the collars up on those Polo shirts, you'll be okay. One of my girlfriends actually STILL does that and I put it down every single time. Ack!

Late 70's - early 80's: wrap around pants, Cherokee wedgies, Gunny Sack dresses (they were beautiful!), and jeans (I can't remember what they were called!) from the Army Surplus store! Dang! Good memories! And to have that body again?!! Please! I'm going to be 45 in a few days - how the HECK did that happen?! OP - ENJOY every moment and thanks for this walk down memory lane!

I actually still have my cheerleader outfit (w/ pompons!) up in the attic. I've just about given up hope of ever getting back into that skirt!

Graduated HS in 73. I remember the girls couldn't even wear pants to school until 1972. I always wore Levi's. I am very tall and back then I was stick thin, so they were the only jeans I could find that were long enough for me. Desert boots were a big thing then too and sandals. Hair was long and straight and I remember ironing my hair every morning. LOL, I had to buy my own iron and ironing board to keep in my room because mom was tired of sharing hers. Makeup was frosted. Frosted eyeshadow, lipstick, and I wouldn't go out of the house without eyeliner, LOL.

I wore stir-up pants, banana clips in my hair and two pair of socks (different colors, of course). I owned only 2 pair of shoes: sneakers and my "nice pair" of beige slip ons. I wore a lot of big plastic bead necklaces and matching earrings. I layered my shirts like crazy and always turned up the collar. I had BIG hair, but not by choice. My hair is naturally curly and they just didn't have the products we have now to calm it down.

OMG this is totally taking me back and making me laugh!

I was an 80s teen also

When I was in Jr high the rainbow phase was in, I remember really preppy clothing being in style then, ala The Preppy Handbook -- those turtlenecks that had everything on them hearts, turtles, etc. The polo shirts and the button down shirts. The Calvin Kleins and the Nike (white leather with the red swoosh only!) -- OMG those were funny times! Fair Isle sweaters, headbands.

In High School- I totally wanted to dress like Olivia Newton John withthe headbands craze and then the Flashdance dance craze legwarmers and ripped sweatshirt.

I was in high school in the 70's. Like others have mentioned I wore bell bottom pants & hip huggers. Peace signs were big. Another big thing was "Hang Ten" shirts and "Izod" shirts. The "Hang Ten" shirts were basically T-shirts with two little feet embroidered over the left breast. Of course the "Izod" shirts had an alligator on them. I had a variety of colors of both, especially the "Izod's" since I grew up by the beach in Florida and went to college at University of Florida (Gators). I also lived in "Slaps". These were a version of flip flop with a straw foot bed and velvet straps. As you wore them the straw would conform to your foot. In college I wore alot of hawaiian shirts and straw hats. I also wore "Hot Pants" and mini skirts.

Now I'm 53 and my favorite leisure wear is hawaiian print shirts and capri's (too many dimples in knees for shorts) and flip flops. I've done the "Professional" thing but when it comes right down to it, I guess I've reverted to my roots as I've gotten older. Or maybe it's just that now that I'm getting closer to retirement I'm not worried about impressing anyone so I wear what I like.

My stamping & scrapping reflects my taste. I'm a sucker for anything tropical, be it paper, flowers, ribbon, brands. I even have palm trees as the theme in my scrapbook room.

Love this thread,
Pam

OMG how fun is this thread!!
I had the rainbow sheet set that arched on the pillows plus the matching curtains. Also had the rainbow shirt, shoe laces, socks--anything rainbow I had to have it!! Also the headhead/legwarmer/flashdance style.
ot the skin tight jordache/Sergio-- dark dark blue with the white stitching. and of course had to have all those friendship safety pins with the beeads on my shoe laces, and the million jelly bracelets up my arm. then the BIG BIG hair and stirrup pants with a big shirt or blazer. Now I am just your normal
run of the mill dresser--usually jean shorts or jeans and a tee-shirt or capris
Don't like many of the styles the girls are wearing now--esepcially the whale tale--when their thong underwear stick out of the top of their pants--especially hard on the eyes when they bend over--UGH!!!

This is a fun thread...I was a teen in the mid-90s, but I remember a lot of the 80's stuff too, from when I was younger. What about jelly shoes anyone? or snap bracelets?

From the 90s...I don't really think i ever went with the trends...but some of the trends for girls were black skirts or black dress pants with everything. Jeans were still hip huggers. Big, chunky shoes, almost platform-like. Clips in the hair was pretty big. In junior high we wore a lot of flannel, button down shirts, with the whole grunge phase.

It certainly is funny to think back on it!
