Sonny Crockett ("Miami Vice")
It's amazing how many trends were inspired by '80s TV characters, considering the utter un-wisdom of so many of their styles. Case in point: Sonny Crockett, the pastel king of Miami law enforcement.
Don Johnson's character on "Miami Vice" made pale-pink T-shirts, sport coats and loafers, without socks, the most emulated look in the '80s. Sonny fought crime with flair, and women loved him. Men wanted to be him. A touch of pastel and oh-so-casual became the look of the trendy man.
And even today, a guy in pink -- that's confidence. We're down with it.
Loafers without socks, not so much.
