I've always been interested with the intersection of 80s teen style, sometime in '84 or '85, right as or before the new wave influences start to wane and the wave of New Kids/mall clothes starts to rise (I say as a weekend expert, I was only born in 85 and really don't know anything about mall clothes; I do own a copy of The Valley Girl Handbook which I can't even find on the internet at all) with a splash of punk, a little bit of skateboard and a lot of baggy-trousered fun. In that spirit I just bought these pants on Etsy

and gosh I hope they fit! I will wear them with a black shirt tucked in, fresh white keds, and wayfarers.
