Type of clothing: Clothing
When it was popular: early 1980s
Description: This is a dress that looks like those fomal curtains your aunt had in the living room where no body ever got to acutally sit. Its main seam and center of gravity ran right down the middle of your body, with tight pleats moving away from the middle of the dress to the sides. It usually came in day-glow pinks and greens, and was not something that you could wear if you had an ounce of body fat. The first one I can remember seeing was worn by Jamie Lee Curtis in "Trading Places" (1983), but this dress also appeared variously throughout the 80's in Miami Vice episodes and Pebbles videos.
