1980s Plastic Charm Bracelets And Necklaces

In the mid-1980s the girls in my class were obsessed with plastic charm bracelets and necklaces. Retro fashion inspired by an even earlier era, these charms could be as simple as a plastic shape (animals, hearts, etc) to as complex as little books and phones with dials.

Whatever charms you chose, the idea was to buy a lot of them — and heap them on plastic chains. It went beyond mere schoolyard fashion, being more emblematic of a 1980s trademark — excess.

Do not be fooled by lesser plastic charms. The true vintage 1980 charm will have a little “anchor” fastener (to attach it on the wide loops of the plastic chains) and sometimes a little metal “jingle.”

Today the authentic plastic charms go for a bit in the collector’s market, with sometimes an entire “full” chain grabbing an upwards of $120+.

Cool T-Shirt: “Bad Moon” by the Ames Bros.

Frank Kozik called the Ames Brothers “the best poster artists in the business.” Designers of scores of rock posters and CD art, they’ve turned their hands to T-shirts. This comic-booky, retro-inspired werewolf shirt will look great with a leather jacket, Converse sneaks, and a punch to the face.
