I was growing up during the 80's and I have a a few ideas on what we were wearing. First almost every girl in my school wore slouch socks like WigWams in white and other colors and white Keds shoes. The classic Keds shoes style. Also they would wear either jeans and roll the legs up slightly so that the socks showed or they would wear the slouch socks over the jeans so you could see the socks. Or they would wear the slouch socks over a pair of leggings along with the same Keds shoes. For a shirt they usually wore a sweatshirt or a sweater or a turtleneck and sweatshirt combo with the leggings or jeans.
To help find the socks you can go to http://www.wigwam.com and then scroll to the bottom of the screen and click on product and on the next screen click on athletic. Then on the next screen scroll down with the arrow and click on women's athletic and on the next screen scroll down until you see women's 622 F1210. These were the socks girls wore during the 80's. Also at the top of the screen on this page you can click on the find a store and the web site will tell you were you can find wigwam socks in your area. I hope this helps you in your search and good luck in class with your presentation.

First of all...NEON was a big thing back in the day. Neon biker shorts under neon soccer shorts was the "in" thing. Layering socks was and side pony tails were totally awesome. Tight rolling the bottoms of your jeans so that your socks could show through was also very cool. Jeans with holes in the knees and cute stretch pants underneath was also something that I wore almost every day.
