1986: Athletic style
In the mid-eighties people were into Aerobics big time. So much so, that athletics evaded fashion: it was all about tights, sweatpants and tracksuits, both as casual wear and evening wear. These were accessorized with athletic accessories, to complete the outfit, including elastic headbands, athletic shoes and the infamous leg warmers.
Today, leg-warmers aren’t even a thing for athletes, let alone as street-wear. It seems like absolute crazy-talk if we even consider leaving the house wearing tights or sweatpants rather than tailored pants or jeans, but that’s the beauty of fashion: it’s fluid and it changes faster than we notice.
