In case you couldn't tell from ourMadonna worshipping momentsorscrunchie-sighting meltdowns,we're pop culture-obsessed children of the '80s here at STF.While return of '80s and '90s styles is nothing new,the latest crop of old school-feeling trends--everything fromBalenciaga'sDynasty dressesto Urban Outfitter's racks ofBreakfast Club-worthy duds--has given us a hardcore case of nostalgia.Curious to find out if we were the only ones who felt this way,we tracked down some of the era's icons and ask them about the trends they made famous--and what they think about their signature styles being back in heavy rotation again.The results are--to use theJem-ism--Truly Outrageous.

Without further ado,we give youThe Bangleson vintage style,their hairstyle evolution and the trouble with wearing chunky bracelets on stage:
