Type "80s triangles" into Google and you'll be bombarded with a huge range of artistic backgrounds and clothing. Geometric shapes including triangles were frequently used by graphic designers in the 80s, and they have become more recently associated with synthwave and retrowave music, which has a strong 80s vibe.
For this post, I'm going to concentrate on creating an 80s costume using triangles.
Firstly, I would suggest going over to Redbubble (who ship globally) and doing a search for 80s Triangles which will present you with a wide range of just about everything from T-shirts to mugs. Click on any product and scroll down the page, and you will see a link to the full range of products with that design. And that's what's great about this site. Every design is available on multiple products.
You can also do the same at Etsy where you find much inspiration, and they have a particularly good range of triangular earrings.
As you will see below. Triangles features on a wide range of fashion accessories, from sunglasses to earrings...
