Puffy shirts & Pirates
The puffy shirt and pirate look can be traced back to Vivienne Westwood's fashion show in 1981. Models in the show carried Walkmans [the size of bricks] and wear baggy round the ankle flat heel boots, henna ringlets and gold teeth. The collection is about gold and treasure, adventure and exploration. That's enough to send a shiver down anyone's spine. 80s pirate collection.

Leg Warmers
This gallery takes you through some styles of leg warmers of the 80's. Leg warmers started with dancers - and are still worn by many today. By around 1982 they began to make an appearance in wider society: you could now pretend you were a dancer by wearing leg warmers over the top of your jeans. Leg Warmers gallery.
