How did it change the American society?

Agree with Me, Myself, I, (above in Yahoo Answers) Music!

Music, which also, was popular as sound tracks to the best movies in the 80s, were what we looked to for guidance with social behaviour.

Many great artists existed, included the one hit wonder scene, however for me, I think the person who made the single biggest impact on society with 80s fashion, was definitely Madonna.

Madonna's trademarks with 80s fashion included:

  • Denim
  • Lace
  • Bow tie in the hair
  • Leggings
  • Ruffle skirts
  • Eyeliner
  • Beauty spots
  • Teased hair
  • Multiple bracelets
  • Dangley and odd earrings

In later years, her impact on 80s fashion included denim with stone wash / torn jeans and denim jackets.

By the late 80s, Madonna's fashion, even though widely recognised, was not as widely adopted. Cone bras, underwear as outer wear and outfits oozing with sexual self expression.
