Jennifer Beals' off-the-shoulder sweatshirt can once again be seen in stores as fashion designers find new ways to reinvent the 80s.

Jeans with torn knees became huge later in the 80s, by the way. Some people even drew on their knees. Madonna wore lace leggings under hers.
What do you know? Ripped jeans are in style yet again. It seems the Flashdance look will continue to resurface every couple of decades until we're all wearing unicolored futuristic spacesuits.
