Sweater Season: Get Your 80's Sweater On!

Big Bold Colorful! Best describes the classic 80's sweater. The brighter, the zanier, the more abstract or novelty the pattern was the better. Bat wing sleeves, big and slouchy, off the shoulder, sometimes down to your knees. They were great fall into winter fashion wear and now they're back!

Here's my All 80s Sweater Line-up! In the shop now!

  1. I don't think I loved these in the 80's, but I saved some for the 90's and then I was glad to have them. Those long ones made great maternity sweaters. ;-)

    1. Sue, I should add maternity sweater to my tag words! :) Crazy, but now young gals are wearing them as dresses (like the long red sweater)! I have to admit they are SO much fun to find now, the louder the better. :)
