Mary-Kate & Lindsay Rock Out In Eighties Tees

10/23/2006 at 05:00 PM ET

Even though they were both born in 1986, Lindsay Lohan and Mary-Kate Olsen are paying homage to some of the decade’s biggest musical acts. Lohan (left) headed out for a day of shopping in Los Angeles recently wearing a Motley Crue t-shirt (the band released “Dr. Feelgood” in 1989). Olsen went for the complete 80’s look by pairing her iconic “Frankie says Relax” t-shirt (Frankie Goes to Hollywood released “Relax” in 1983) with skinny jeans with zippers at the ankles. They aren’t the only young fans of 80’s pop t-shirts — Jessica Simpson (born in 1980) was recently spotted in a t-shirt emblazoned with “The Police.” As long as no one starts wearing Flock of Seagulls haircuts, we think this trend is totally rad. Do you agree? Will you be rocking out in eighties tees, too?

Love some of the clothes from the 80’s and especially the t-shirts and these ladies are adding a bit of class to it.

meh…not really a look i would go for, just because i’m not into that kind of music…i think if you like the bands from that decade, for sure, go for sporting them on your t-shirts…(because you support their music or what-not)…i don’t think these t-shirts should be worn by people who have no clue who the bands are and just wanna follow the trends they see…this kinda goes hand in hand with the t-shirts that say “hawaii” or like “california” on them…by all means if you’ve been to those places or like those places, wear them…but i don’t get it when my sister walks into a “garage clothing” and comes out with shirts advertising places she hasn’t ever been to…so to sum it us, by all means wear shirts advertising bands from the 80s as long as you know what those bands are about…

I agree with you on this. Do you really think Lindsay Lohan listens to Motley Crue anyway? Who knows. Personally I don’t really like this look, but that’s just me. People seem like they’re trying too hard and they seem like they’re trying to go out of their way to prove to people that they’re tough, or a rebel. It’s just too forced to me. That’s my opinion.

I can handle the t-shirts even though I’m not so crazy about 80’s music, but the zip-ankle skinny jeans have to go. Actually, I could do without ALL skinny jeans. They’re awful.

Never mind the skinny jeans (although I’m not a fan) – It’s the heels with a t-shirt and hoodie that’s making me shudder!

Why do the 80’s have to come back? They were bad enough the first time around…

i think mk looks awesome. she is always pushing limits in fashion which ends up pushing fashion forward. she is not afraid and confident in her choices. GO MK!

I love that they’re paying homage to some of the old 80’s bands- such fun music. Some of the band t-shirts- like Lindsay’s Motley Crue shirt- look kind of dirty or cheap to me… is that airbrushed? I agree completely with JenB- please no more skinny jeans! Blech!

This is the dumbest ‘trend’ yet. There is no one original in Hollywood – no not one. All these gurrrrrrls borrow from each other. I seriously wish they’d ,like seeeriously, get a life. Like, gag me with a pitch fork and call me done that been there!

I could understand if they were genuine fans, but they are not. Lindsay Lohan releases crappy dance music. Do they even listen to any form of rock? No.
