A huge fad in the 80s, acid wash jeans, and denim jackets and accessories took the world by storm. The trend seems to have started in the early 80s, but continued throughout the decade, including women’s purses, skirts and more. The fact that is was so popular, probably killed the trend. Originally, a new and different look, it became so common that it lost its uniqueness.
men’s and women’s jeans were the most popular acid washed items, but if it was made of denim, someone somewhere would give it the acid-washed treatment. The style has become almost synonymous with the 1980s.
