The 80s are famous for tracksuits, neon colours or the new romantics and we have got everything covered. You can choose from various colour 80s fancy dress all of which are amazing fashion statements. Perhaps you are more musically minded, in which case a pop star costume might be more appropriate. Famous 80s pop stars include, Freddie Mercury from Queen, Adam Ant, Boy George and George Michael and of course Michael Jackson. Rap was huge in the 80s as well, so pay homage to that genre with baggy trousers and lots of gold jewellery. The 90s were not so far away, but there are still many iconic costumes, such as musicians, wrestlers and TV stars.
Shellsuits where the b-boys and rappers’ “uniform”. If you were a respectable hip-hop crew member, you had to wear one. They were comfortable and flashy; what else could you ask for?
There are many ways you can top off your eighties costume be it carrying around a Boombox, wearing a bum bag (also called fanny packs), or you can go for the rockstar meets pirate trend, wearing a headband around your head, as you can see these are just a few ideas. This decade period allows you to fool around with many options, don’t be afraid to ride the new romance wave or to go completely punky. Have fun at your next themed party!
