|80s dapper menswear for girls.|
|80s magazine sleeve garter how-to.|
Around the time the sleeve garters and suspender clips were popular, girls also wore extra-long and billowing, crisp mens button-up dress shirts - which I believe... were called "grandaddy" shirts. Sometimes I wore a skinny tie with the shirt, sometimes a cowboy bandanna, sometimes a big gaudy brooch pinned right between the collar points. My Great Aunt was extremely embarrassed to be seen with me wearing the oversized shirt - it was just too weird for her. I felt her pain - but it seemed completely irrational,so - feeling sartorially "neato" - I floated forth - shirttails billowing like sails in the breeze.
