13 Sweaters You Remember Thinking Were Totally Rad Back In The 80s


There really is nothing quite like the fashion from the 80s. Sure, every decade has its own definitive look, but none are quite as wonderfully weird as the 80s. The hair, the makeup, and the shoulder pads were all a pretty big factor, but the sweaters are probably the most memorable.

Every sweater that was purchased in the 80s was a true piece of art. Or at least that's what we have to tell ourselves to try to understand why these were ever made. Check out these truly hilarious and often times insane sweaters that we all rocked in the 80s.
