This year 'set for 80s comeback'
The 80s are back in fashion and it will be a difficult trend to avoid in 2009, it is claimed.

Writing for the Daily Telegraph, Hilary Alexander says that the 80s is making a comeback this year and there were "fashion essentials without which no respectable Eighties wardrobe was complete".

Such items include leg-warmers, leggings, ankle socks, patterned tights and neon Spandex leggings, according to the fashion expert.

Writing for FemaleFirst, Jessica Watson commented that leggings have stood the test of time and celebrities such as Lady GaGa and Lindsay Lohan enjoying the legwear.

"A bit like Sleeping Beauty, they [the 80s] have been roused from their fashion coma by the mwaah-mwaah air-kiss of style," Ms Alexander comments.

Other parts of the 80s wardrobe that she cites include jelly shoes, strapless jumpsuits, cycle shorts under ra-ra skirts and floppy scarves.

For those that did not experience the decade, Ms Alexander adds that they can get hold of some Elnett hairspray and call the fashion vintage.
