Popular Jeans of the 80s
Wearing denim jeans will never go out of style, new name brand jeans will come in style every year. The blue jeans worn in the 1980s are very memorable; most of the jeans that were worn in the 80s were named by famous fashion designers, just like they are today.
Blue jeans make people feel casual, stylish, fendy, trendy and sexy. Wearing blue jeans can make any type of shoes look great, such as pumps, sneakers, flats, etc. Also jeans are the standard attire to wear and will never go out of style, while other types of pants may go out of style. Pants such as corduroy will go out of style more than blue jean ever will.
Jeans come in many different types: stone washed, black, blue, white, red, skinny, baggy, etc. In the early 80s when many people were just beginning to attend middle school, they remember that everyone was wearing a name brand jean called Wranglers. Teenagers then wore their wranglers fitted, and some wore then baggy. Wrangler jeans were the ones that were made of good quality, they lasts longer than many other jeans that were made back then.
Once the skinny jeans were in style in the early 80s, all colors of leg-warmers were worn with the jeans. And in the late 80s Levi jeans were wore in many colors and in corduroy. Back in the day people wore Bomber-jackets with fur around the hood of their jackets, along with their Levi jeans. The Levi Strauss jeans came in colors of: black, blue, yellow, orange, green, purple, red, brown; and others colors. These jean styles were popular with men and women also.
