the history of 80s fashion, as expressed in Belle Stars videos

Early 80s ("Sign of the Times"): new wave, sharp lines, black-and-white, hats, think Boy George and Thompson Twins



Mid-80s ("The Clapping Song"): mod, tropical, scarves, patters, think Fun Boy Three and Bananarama



Late 80s ("Iko Iko"): spandex, workout, funky shoes, bright colors, hip-hop-style clothes and dancing, think MC Hammer



And there you are. After randomly watching the first video, I just had to get that out of my head.
