80s Awesomeness! ~ 69

Stirrup Pants!!!


Horrifying, aren't they? Just remember, they're, like 4 inches away from being those leggings everyone wears today. Those originally came about 6 years after these things so don't go thinking there's a big gap. You're horribly, horribly wrong.

OMGosh! I wore those! Ok not the striped ones like in the pic but I wore them! And to be honest I didn't like them because they also pulled to tight. I wore a ton of leggings tho - tons! So now when I see them back in the stores and on my students I just giggle!

I had a skirt with a wide black elastic waist like that. It was neon grean polka dotted, and I thought it was awesome.

Seeing these stirrup pants reminds me of those horrible leotard shirts that I used to wear--The ones that buttoned in the crotch. Oh, these are not happy memories!

I confess I wore them but they didn't have stripes No stripes for me Makes me shudder to think about it.

Oh yeah. Definitely wore these. Well, not these particular buckets of hideous but the pants in general. Never wore the onesies for adults, though. By the time they came into style for people my age at the time, I was pretty heavy and felt too self-conscious wearing them.
