Does Barry Manilow know you raided his wardrobe?

One of my all time favorite movies is "Breakfast Club". And it contains this famous Manilow related movie line. Barry himself pokes fun of his interesting clothing choices back in the 70's and 80's. It was the disco age and era of the white suit, which facilitated the comment in the movie. But the "white suit" was not his only fashion faux pas. Of course, we've all had them: eighties hair, tube socks, scrunchies, and leg warmers (which are coming back..who knew???).

To start this terrific Tuesday off with a snicker and a smile, here are some of Barry's most obvious fashion faux pas'.

Who could forget the Copa shirt?

Or the jumpsuit?

Or the white tux?

Or the plaid suit?

Perhaps it's why he sticks to basic black. You can't go wrong with that combination.

Thank heavens there is not an online photojournal of my own fashion catastrophes...and...thank heavens that Barry can laugh at himself while we laugh along with him!

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

The Copa Shirt has always been my favorite along with the white Tux. I have a standing joke with the gals at the "M" store, that when they get tired of having the Copa shirt there, I get first dibs on it.

I do agree that the plaid suit was a fashion mishap YIKES, along with a few others. But you must admit the man does have a flare for fashion.
