Plus, you had a choice of body parts on which to wear this particularly awesome piece of 80s attire.
If you’re at a club, and you don’t want your sweet dance moves interrupted by salty sweat stinging your eyes OR ruining your awesome makeup, you could go with the headband. However, if you were seriously up on your game (and we don’t mean on the court) you could always go for wrist variety. Why? Well, don’t YOUR wrists sweat a lot? Ok, fine– neither do ours. Let’s just chalk it all up to another bold and daring fashion movement in the 80s.
We have to give it up to the tennis players and other athletes who first busted out the sweatbands (albeit for their intended purposes) but the real credit? Well, it goes to that unknown brave soul who first slapped one on and said, “You know what? I may not be playing any sort of recreational activity or exerting enough energy to make me even break a sweat but, by God, these things make me look awesome.”
We ♥ sweatbands.
