Type of clothing: Loose Knit Sweater
When it was popular: 1984-90
Description: These were loose woven sweaters that both male and females wore. Some had a "marble effect" . The main color of the sweater would be woven with black or white threads thus giving a marbled appearance. These sweaters had a tendency to get stretched out easily due to the weave ( especially the sleeves) Some came in v-necks which girls at my school would turn backwards and wear a racer back tank top underneath so it would show. The loose weave did provide some "air-conditioning so these were a good top for transitioning from Fall to Winter.
