The color is fantastic. And I think Megan actually showed restraint by pairing her teal? aqua? frilly pinwheel top with a black skirt as opposed to, say, a hot pink one. Which would have been completely acceptable.
And while I love her haircut (sort of a take on the wedge cut, which the hottest girls in ’86 dared to get), I must note her date’s hair.
I don’t know what we called it then, or if it even had a name. But it’s basically a reverse mullet. For the young’uns out there who might not understand — that boy? His hair is short all around his head except for where his pseudo-bangs hang down over his face.
And yes, that was was also hot.
Overall, I’d have to say that Megan and her date basically grabbed 1986 by the balls and said, “YES. WE ARE WITH YOU.”
