The fashions of John Hughes movies

Clustered in a small window of the mid-‘80s are the John Hughes films that stick with you, the angst-ridden, modernized incarnations of “Rebel Without a Cause” that resonate so well with those born around the time of Watergate (or even as late as the Carter or Reagan years, if they had good babysitters).

Just as immortal as the plots and catch phrases: the leggings, the taffeta and the sweater vests. Though Hughes didn’t costume his characters, these films capture the essence of an era that’s still shimmering its way thorough fashion. Just take a look at the Fall 2009 runway shows. Here, a sampling some of those classic Hughes movie looks.
