What is the difference between fashions in the 1970s and the fashions in the 1980s?
The difference was the 1970's fashion trends were still similar to the 1960's trends (the "British Invasion" and "Flower Child" Hippie looks), while the late seventies' and eighties' fashions changed to include a 'rainbow' of new fashion statements. Many of which were influenced by Disco dancing and movies about Disco dancing.
Women in the 1980's started wearing "BIG" hair styles. While in the 1970's hairstyles for women tended to still be more natural, as in the 1960's and "Hippie" styles. In the 80's, the new trend for men's hairstyles was the "why-did-they-do-that?" mullet. See the link on this page to the Rate My Mullet web site for photo examples. Even some women adopted that style of hair once it became popular. As the eighties progressed, women's hair continued to get bigger and stiffer and men's hair started to trend toward shorter and slicked back with gels like the characters in "Wall Street", at least the ones who could wean themselves from the mullet (that has taken decades for some, however).
1980's pants for both sexes were trending toward being worn really tight and close at the ankles instead of the Hippie and 1970-style bell bottom jeans. Baggy sweatshirts for women, cut to open the neck and worn off the shoulder like in the movie Flash Dance were popular, as were the leg warmers from the same influence in the '80's. The leg warmers were worn in summer as well as winter over the tight pants legs or with mini skirts. Women used scrunchies in their hair (often to match the leg warmers), and wore them on their wrists to "keep track of them for use later". Boy George was a fashion icon for both sexes in the mid to late 80's, too.
Men often dressed in brightly colored polyester leisure suits, many with vests for a three piece suit look, with platform shoes, like John Travolta's character in Saturday Night Fever, starting with the big Disco dancing trend in the 1980's. Or, instead, they wore "left-over hippie clothes" from the 60's and 70's with long hair, ripped jeans, and those plaid flannel "lumber jack" shirts.
But, all that said, generally speaking, the style in the 80's was more 'polyester', while in the 70's it was overall more 'natural'.
There's a lot of confusion between the 1960s and 1970s. The 60s and 70s are two totally different decades. Hippies are for the mid 1960s through the early 1970s and disco is for the mid 1970s through early 1980s. For example, bell bottom pants were popular from the late 1960s through the early 1980s, same with platform shoes. In the mid 1960s through early 1970s, mod clothes were fashionable. In the late 1970s and early…
Terrorist incidents in the 1970s and 1980s occurred as supporters of the Palestinian resistance to several different countries. Probably the most obvious and prominent of these was Israel, but there were also terrorist and paramilitary aggression against the governments in Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia, and a few other countries in that time period for their treatment of the Palestinian refugees and/or not allowing Palestinian terrorist organizations to freely operate within their boundaries.
Not a great amout to be honest. The main difference between now and the 80s is that the 80s had a individual style in itself, wheras now there is a focus and interest on 'vintage style' clothing. There has been a large emphasis on past eras since the start of the decade. Alot of the fashion at the moment is based on 1970s influences; the 'boho' look. But there are some similarities as there are…

In the early days of C programming (1970s/1980s) this may well have been true - architectures such as the PDP8 and PDP11 were more efficient at using pointers than indexed addressing. But for any modern CPU and compiler (say mid-1980s onwards) there should be no significant performance difference between using pointers and explicit array indexing - indeed any decent compiler should generate identical code for both forms.
manga was first introduced on television in the 1960's ___________________ Some U.S. fans were aware of manga in the 1970s and early 1980s but One of the first manga translated into English and marketed in the U.S. was Keiji Nakazawa's Barefoot Gen (1980-1982). More manga were translated between the mid-1980s and 1990s.
