Gimme That '80s Butt

High-waisted jeans, thin leather belt, button-up shirt tucked into the high-waisted jeans. These are lyrics from Seattle-based Don't Talk To The Cops' "Gimme That '80s Butt" song, but they're ALSO an itemized breakdown of our daily uniform over hurr at MTV Style. You see, every era (and sub/counter-culture within that era, but for simplicity's sake let's just cap it at decades) has its silhouette: the '50s had poodle skirts, prim polos, and ponytails (try saying that three times fast!), the '60s ventured into mod, mini territory, the '70s had spread collars, macrame, and bell bottoms, etc. etc. ad infinitum. We won't be able to keenly discern the hallmark outfit shape of the 2010s until way after the fact, but one thing is for sure, and heavily underscored by DTTTC's track: we're borrowing so. much. '80s butt.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
