'80s Fashion Fix | White (Part 1)

I don't think there's a fashion magazine in the world that doesn't feature at least one white-themed editorial each year. I don't have stats to back up that claim, but what I do have... is an awesome 4-part series of all white fashion editorials.

My personal stance on white clothing is that it belongs exclusively on the pages of a magazine, and not on any human being existing in the world as we know it. I applaud the bravery of someone who does the whole head to toe white thing. I really do. But I think we all know they're a water cracker short of a cheese platter to think they're going to stay all white for the full duration of a standard day (or night). Damn fools is what they are.

As a special treat we'll be featuring white fashions from the '80s & '90s every week for the month of June. Enjoy some pure '80s white gold in Part 1 now...
