Shoulder pads were rampant in the 80s and 90s. They were for Very Serious Business Ladies to show how Very Serious they were about their Business. But they were hardly ever flattering and more often than not bolstered an oversized beige blazer, which didn't help anybody. Let's shrug off shoulder pads for good.
We all swooned hard for the Devon Sawas and the Rider Strongs and the Jonathan Taylor Thomases and the Nick Carters and the Matthew Lawrences of the 90s... (It was a very popular haircut.) That doesn't mean it was right.
There are two types of people in this world. The type that see skorts as shorts with skirt flaps in the front, and the type that see them as skirts with shorts in the back. However you see it, everyone can agree on one thing: it's a horrible piece of clothing.

"Business up front, party in the back" is a terrible excuse for a haircut. We suggest the "business up front, business in the back, business everywhere" or if that's too much, the "business up front, party in the back, but it's a nice, quiet dinner party with some wine and lit candles."
Apparently, JNCO Jeans are actually making a comeback. But if we close our eyes and pray extra hard, maybe it won't happen. These monstrously oversized pants weren't comfortable, practical, or attractive. Which leaves brainwashing as the only possible reason they became popular.
Im fairly certain not one windbreaker in the history of windbreakers was actually recorded breaking wind. I bet many of the people who wore them were, though. This was truly the clothing item for people who wanted to announce their presence.
