Lace – we all know how pretty lace is as a fabric and though they’re really on trend today with lots of women, it not a new trend either. Madonna wore lace everything back in the day (in fact, she still does today) it wouldn’t have been so surprising if there was a shortage of the stuff. Lace tops, lace jackets, lace tights and leggings, lace gloves – these were just some of the lace pieces Madonna used to get garbed up in and many other women quickly followed suit.
Slogan shirts – so you think those slogan shirts you see lots of fashionistas wearing today are a new thing? Well, think again. Madonna was actually one of the first, if not the absolute first, celebrities to make slogan shirts happen. These are equivalent to the statement shirts we wear today with words like ‘#yolo’ or ‘Celfie’ on them printed.
Crop tops – these ever so popular staples at summer music festivals were first made popular by Madonna back in the 80s. They continued to be a trend in the 90s and again resurfaced a few couple of summers ago and they’re still taking the fashion world by storm.
Cloth headband – Rihanna and Cher Lloyd are just some of the most popular celebs to sport bandana headbands today but Madonna was actually the first one who made this into a trend back in the 80s. Back then, she didn’t limit herself to wearing just bandana headbands, she also wore other cloth headbands from bow bands to what seemed like strips torn from her bed sheet and it was the cheapest yet coolest thing ever.
