The 80's shouldn't forget something

The 80's Shouldn't Forget Something

I’m the generation after 80s. Although at present I’m independent of my parents, the childhood often rush into my memory. And some things that 80s child used once are still fresh in my mind. Remember these? 

Slap Bracelets
I used to have a collection of these self-harming accessories, including my very own New Kids on the Block one. They were popular among pre-teens and teens in the late 80’s but were eventually banned from schools after many students suffered wrist injuries. Now that enough time has elapsed and people have forgotten the potential dangers of  arm jewelry that once splayed open a kid’s artery, slap bracelets are back! 

Jelly Bracelets
To go with their giant hoop earrings, girls used to wear jelly bracelets up to their elbows. Mine went about half way, on one arm only, and glowed in the dark. 

Fishnet Gloves
My mother would never let me leave the house wearing a pair of these, but the hooker-look was certainly as fashionable then as it is now. 

Colorful Wayferer Sunglasses
Flip through the pages of Nightlife or Vice and you’ll find scenesters love to hide their coke-blasted eyes behind a pair of Wayferers sunglasses. My pair was neon pink and black and I used to wear them while playing my Sanyo synthesizer. 

Nerd Glasses
Flip through the pages of Nightlife or Vice and all of a sudden that kid who used to get pointed at, or pummelled for wearing those enormously awkward, thick, plastic-rimmed glasses is a sexy, love-getting machine. The nerds finally got their revenge. 

Though the elasticity of scrunchies was sometimes debatable, I loved them because they were gentle and didn’t rip out the fragile hairs from my scalp. Scrunchies have now made a comeback, continuing to help ponytails stay high and off-centered. 

Leg Warmers
There were no ugg boots at that time, at least in my hometown. Certainly practical when wanting to keep those shins warm, leg warmers bring back another fond 80’s memory. Anyone else use to layer their socks?
