The mid ’80s were a strange time. A lot of people had forgotten disco’s brief moment in the sun and the genre was largely relegated to novelty and nostalgia at this point, which is probably why the ’80s are so often thought of as being a bit of a wasteland for music.
But there was some good music that came out in the ’80s, although it had an odd style that was very different from what had come before. This was probably due to all the new technology being developed at this time, which made everything sound a little more futuristic. And with Madonna fronting it all, you know it had to be good.
They may not have been as wild as they were in the 1970s, but they were still going strong in the ’80s with their big hair and heaving bosoms. There was a lot of emphasis on fitness and exercise at this time, which is partly why there were so many aerobic videos around during this period (and why aerobics classes became popular).
They also wore less makeup than they used to and looked more natural than before. They also seemed to be wearing longer skirts than ever before, which must have been a relief for men who were tired of seeing women’s underwear all the time.
The ’80s was the decade when shoulder pads really came into their own, which is strange because they were arguably less useful than ever before. People had started to get slimmer and sleeker, but shoulder pads were still very much to be worn.
Other than that, men’s fashion was pretty much the same as it had been in the 1970s. Big hair and big muscles were still in fashion, although there was more emphasis on being fit and athletic than there had been before. Oh, and one last thing: people still wore hats during this period.
Disco pants were essentially flares, but they came in very bright colors with various patterns and designs. They were also usually made of synthetic materials, which meant they didn’t get too hot or uncomfortable when you wore them. They were very popular among women, although most of them didn’t wear them during aerobic classes or when play aerobics on their own. That would have been too much for people to handle at that time.
Here are some of the popular disco pants that were worn during the ’80s.
The black and white striped pair
These striped disco pants were worn by Madonna during her Who’s That Girl tour in 1987, which was one of the most popular tours of the 1980s. They were worn with a pair of very tight and form-fitting leggings that highlighted her toned legs. The leggings also had a black stripe on the side, which matched the black and white striped disco pants.
The red and white polka dot pair
These pants were worn with a pair of white tennis shoes and an oversize red shirt with similarly large white polka dots on it. Women also wore bright red lipstick to match their clothing.
The pink and yellow floral pair
These disco pants were worn by Madonna during the Blond Ambition tour as well, although they were mostly worn with just a tank top underneath them and no shoes at all. They are pink and yellow floral prints, which made them look very feminine and pretty despite being made of synthetic materials. They seem to be some sort of imitation leather or pleather, but they are still quite pretty nonetheless.
The green plaid pair
These disco pants were worn by women as well, although they were mostly worn with a pair of black boots and a tight oversize shirt. They are green plaid patterns, which made them look quite country and rustic. They also had a nice shiny sheen to them that made them look quite fashionable.
The white and black stripe pair
These disco pants were worn with a pair of black sneakers and a white tank top, which was also worn with a pair of red shorts underneath it. They are very simple, but they still looked very stylish and pretty. After all, simplicity is often the best way to go when it comes to fashion.
The pink and black plaid pair
These disco pants were worn by Madonna during the Blond Ambition tour as well, although they were mostly worn with just a tight white tank top underneath them. They are pink and black plaid patterns, which made them look very stylish indeed. They also had a very shiny sheen to them that made them look very fashionable, especially when they were worn with sneakers.
This was the decade when the disco pants really came into their own. They were much different from what people wore during the 1970s, but they still looked very stylish and fashionable despite being made of synthetic materials. It was also the decade when Madonna really came into her own.
