Sex: Mostly Female/both
Type of clothing: Used Clothes/jewlery, The Trashier The Better
When it was popular: 1980-1986
Description: Cyndi Lauper made this huge: used clothes from thriftshops and junk jewlery from thriftshops, the trashier and tackier the better. This included mixing pattern after pattern (camo pants with a paisley long sleeve shirt buttoned up, and a loud hawiian shirt unbuttoned over that), 6 or 7 belts (metal "dressy" belts that women wear along with regular leather ones, concho belts were also popular with this), mis-matched shoes and piles and piles of junk/plastic jewlery (including mis-matched earrings). The scary thing is the popularity of this look seemed to come and go with Cyndi's popularity (started in the very early 80s and died not long after her popularity started to slip around late '86).
