I know, I know, I'm a grown man, I shouldn't use the word "awesome".

They also were a reference to the pro-dancer thing that gave us movies/shows like Grease and Fame. Oh, and Flashdance.
And then there's the shoulderpads and teased/moused/hairsprayed to death/permed hair, often in mullets.

It's really no wonder cartoons and caricatures of the day started drawing women as triangles.
