So as I watch music shows (MTV, FuseTV, etc...), I realized that the late 80's fashion of hi top Nike's, bright neon suits, gold chains, gumby haircuts with the lines on the side is making its way back into modern day. I mean the late 80's was a very fashionable era. I mean this could be the come back of Kid-N-Play movies?! Ok, maybe not so much, but this is great. I mean the classic 3 feet tall hi top fade created by Christopher "Kid" Reid will make a daily appearance. Sad enough some people might not enjoy this, but, I would appreciate this resurrection of ADIDAS tracksuits and thick glasses look. The only people in my generation I see still representing this era is "The Cool Kids"!! I'm tired of seeing thick, gold chains only rocked on Halloween.
I can think back to LL Cool J and his multiple colored Kangol hats, Run DMC wearing ADIDAS without the laces, Rappers wearing thick gold chains, rings, watches and neon suits. MC Hammer and the now famous parachute pants. The list just goes on. Slick Rick wearing at least 48 gold chains, which were most of the time fake. Now i think about it half the jewelry worn by them were fake. Not only was the fashion era a classic nut the music matched its status. Biz Markie "Just A friend" was every man anthem when they were cheated on. MC Hammer's list on dance pop songs that made you want to slap your mama so hard along with the slick, suave dance moves?? Oooooooooh Man!! Salt-N-Pepa's bass thumping song with dirty messages of "Push It".
So as of Now I APPROVE this fashion statement, and i wish it will return quickly! Not only did it have a good fashion taste and music but it had a meaning like the generation before it. That message was PEACE. During that era the main concern at that time was having a good time and making a trend. I feel that impact has died do to the current trend of degrading women, drugs, money status, and being in a gang to prove your a tough guy. So please, please, please come back giant clocks, red jackets with zippers, high socks with low cut sneakers because I miss you. Thank You! -Teron Taylor
