I recall commenters on The Americans complaining that they didn’t see any ‘80s fashion at the beginning of that series, but it started out set in 1981, so they were actually period correct. Co-signing this 100%. A lot of people forget that it takes awhile for new looks to take hold in a decade, and usually around the turn of a decade, fashion still has one foot in the previous one. The early eighties were a bit bland, nebulous, and still stuck in the late 70's in a lot of ways. I can remember things starting to shift a bit in '82/83, which is when I moved from elementary school to junior high. The 60's were the same. If you look at clothing catalogues and pattern books in the Pre-Kennedy assassination era, skirts were still quite full and long like they were in the 50's, although much sleeker more tailored influences were creeping in. The mod stuff didn't hit until the mid-sixties, and the hippie stuff came shortly after that. I will shut up now, as I'm WAAY off topic! But fashion and period detail fascinates me - I think this particular show is hit-or-miss. 3 6 Link to comment
