The 80’s was the era when bigger meant better, and this life approach didn’t spare 80’s prom dresses either. The early 80’s prom dress was a hangover of the crazy 70’s disco era. Think bright colors and crimped hair. With the rise of MTV, musicians had more influence on clothing than ever before, so Madonna in trashy lace and Cyndi Lauper singing that “Girls just want to have fun” had an impact on the 80’s prom dress that meant loud colors and poof, plenty of hairspray and over the top cheap jewelry. Metallics and bright colors such as fuchsia, turquoise and purple made a big appearance in the 80’s prom dress, often with puffed shoulders or asymmetrical looks like one-shoulder dresses. During this era, many high-school movies had their big culminating moment at the high-school dance, so the 80’s prom dress was clearly of extra importance during this era with movies like with Footloose and Heathers, although one could argue that Molly Ringwald’s 80’s prom dress in Pretty in Pink left a lasting impression.
