If you fell between '80s cliques, how would you dress for the big reunion?




Hey, '80s fans, there's a cry for '80s fashion help that just arrived in my e-mail. This is going to take more work than just watching Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion again on DVD. So I'm enlisting everyone's help in resolving this issue. Super-fan Bill from Cali sent this today:

Dear Steve, my 20-year reunion is coming up on August 1st.  I don't know what to wear.  I'm a male, 5'10" 230lbs, recently divorced.  We are holding the reunion at a Native American casino.  The high school is  located in a large farming community in central California. I was a geek to the cool kids, a jock to the geeks and a clown to the jocks. Any suggestions?       

Wow, Bill. That's a tough situation. But I have total faith in the Stuck in the '80s nation to provide the correct answer. I myself am a fashion disaster, but I had the time of my life at my 20-year reunion (which is what led me to create Stuck in the '80s in the first place).

The secret: I didn't care what I was wearing. It was all positive attitude and putting old ghosts to rest. Seriously. Greatest weekend in my life. And I'm not ashamed to admit I cried like a baby when it was over. So have faith.

In the meantime, how can we help Bill dress himself for the big reunion?
