The 80s will continue to be one of the best decades of all time. There has never (and will never) be a decade that is more colorful, more ridiculous, or more fun. Sure, some people may be saying that we are all stuck in the past and that we should move on, but honestly, there is no point. We are never going to achieve the same intense obsession with hairspray and blue eyeshadow again, so let's all remember it while we still can.

Obviously, there was no internet in the 80s, so following the trends was all done through magazines. You can see all the big trends in the covers that we used to care so much about, and boy, are they ever great. Let's take a look at all the wonderful covers of magazines from the greatest decade ever and see how much we can figure out about the trends at the time.
