London, May 10 (IANS) The brightly-coloured, shiny tracksuit, popularly known as Shellsuit, has been voted as the worst fashion trend of the 80s.
More than three quarters of the British women surveyed picked out shellsuit as the ultimate faux pas.
It was followed by spandex leggings, with 39 percent of votes, and the perm hairstyle with 36 percent.
The new research, commissioned by Galaxy Counters, also showed that more than a third of women do not want to see the return of Day Glo make-up and stirrup trousers, reports telegraph.co.uk.
The list of fashion disasters also included Jelly shoes, crimped hair, fingerless lace gloves and “hair metal” such as banana clips.
However, when it comes to best trend of the 1980s, stone wash denim topped the list with 32 percent votes followed by Wayfarer-style plastic sunglasses with 27 percent votes and leg warmers with 17 percent votes.
Ra Ra skirts were endorsed by 14 percent of women and ‘dancewear as fashion’ was voted best by 11 percent.
