Leg warmers were designed to keep the muscles of a dancer’s lower legs warm during rehearsals. Did they? When the warmers appeared in Flashdance (1983) and Footloose (1984) it didn’t matter, people had to have them.

Something just had to flap in the nightclub wind. In the 80s, it was lace accessories. Worn on hands, hips, arms and legs. These were part of the pop culture. They were the tail feathers you were shaken when dancing.

Everything was big in the 80s. Hair, earrings, cell phones. Why not big headphones? Today we’ve got those things that look like pieces of tissue hanging out your ears. In the 80s, big headphones said, ‘Go away, I’m listening to Frankie Goes to Hollywood.’
