80s Fashion Adverts from Smash Hits Autumn 1987

One of the best ways to get a snapshot of what people were wearing back in the 80s, is to take a gander at some of the adverts, and in today's post, I have several poster ads from two Smash Hits magazines from October and November 1987, one of which featured Philip Schofield on the front cover riding a scooter.

Once again, it's an official design and comes in a full range of sizes for adults a
