Ra-ra skirts were worn with innocence by young girls but they were actually quite
racey. They were good-time skirts, not church-going skirts. They weren't even that stylish...
The best thing about them was spinning round pretending to be a UFO as the
many layers formed a flying saucer round you!
Legwarmers were converted from a functional garment into a fashion
statement by the kids from Fame.
These socks without the feet were part of a dancer's outfit, but
soon became every day school wear for girls.
They were usually worn scrunched around the calf. Handily, they covered that exposed
bit of flesh left at the ankle by even less flattering leggings.
