We have a terrific set of books from your friends at Sears. Take Fashionable clothing from the Sears catalogs : early 1980s. Yes, the 1980's require more than one volume of coverage. I'm surprised you had to ask. So I was browsing this beauty for clothes that would look seriously out of place today. Prairie style - nope, too ordinary. Shiny jewel-toned dresses with abstract patterns - maybe. Then I hit the Sportswear section - jackpot! Sweatbands with updos, check. Legwarmers in 3 different colors with horizontal stripes! What appears to be a one-piece swimming suit with a belt and for bonus points - the belt matches the periwinkle tights that are part of this ensemble. Does it still take that much work to dress for exercise? I have to ask because I don't. Exercise that is. For an authentic glimpse into daywear from the decades this series can't be beat! Nosiree bob!
