Plucky Duckie

"This is a really volcanic ensemble you're wearing, it's really marvelous!"
Duckie, Pretty in Pink (1986)

While most girls may remember John Hughes' Pretty in Pink for leading lady Andie's eighties ensembles, its Duckie that does it for me. His loud combo of plaids, paisleys and stripes, together with his love of sunglasses indoors, slouch socks, natty shoes and Western neck ties really were the most volcanic of ensembles.
