The 80s

     As the century moved along, television was gaining more and more influence over fashion. During the 1980s, this was no exception. Shows like "Dynasty" and "Dallas" had a great influence in the public. Pop culture has had the greatest impact in fashion. It was what told kids how to look cool and what was really in. Stars like madonna portrayed a certain 80s style that is iconic to this day. These celebrities endorsed the famous shoulder pats, jackets, loose shirts, jelly shoes, and leggings of the 80s. It is truly remarkable the power the media has had on our society; it has become the greatest influence on fashion.
