1980s Fashion-Now in Plus Size!

The Lane Bryant
Fashion Math Make-Over
The Complete Fashion Guide for Women Size 14 and Up

1987

If you are looking for some 1980s fashion ideas, your wait is over! Since there isn’t a lot of fashion help for the over size 14 crowd, it is nice that this book exists. However, it should probably be weeded by 2020.

All your 1980s favorites are here: shoulder pads, bulky/long sweaters, overly permed hair, dropped waists, high waist pants, weird sleeves, etc. Such a sad time for fashion.

I am still trying to figure out the math part of the the title.

Teen Makeover

The Make-Over
A Teen’s Guide to Looking & Feeling Beautiful
Parks-McKay
1985

Ah, the 1980s live again. This book has all the makeup and fashion advice your average teen girl needs. The shirt/vest combo looks 1970s (I say this because I had a similar outfit in 1977. Heck, I think I had the same hair as well.) By the 1980s we were all looking for some big hair via perms. For me personally, the 1980s ended up being a series of bad choices in hair and fashion.
