80s Fancy Dress tips

80s Fancy Dress tips

If you take a look at the music industry’s fashion of the 1980s it will give you plenty of pointers for your 80s fancy dress. 

Fashion of the 80s moved on from the 1970’s by transforming the outrageous harsh Punk styles into softer, friendlier high street clothing.  Materials were mixed up. Madonna softened the punk style with a softer and sexier look of nets, gloves and chiffon.  Silk and harsh netting created the eighties glam look.

Jewellery – Chains, studs, several earrings worn in one ear, big hair, multi-coloured hair, bold nail varnish and large amounts of jewellery were all 80s fashion trends. 

Coloured Hair spray -Non–permanent spray-on hair dye was used in bright or florescent colours of pinks, reds, plum, greens and blues. Spray it on to match your outfit and then wash it out straight away ready for the next colour.  

Body shape – Health and fitness were the rage and took over from skinny.  It was fashionable to have a body shape and keep it in shape.  The eighties gave us the workout video (and also beta!!)and many TV and film stars produced their own exercise regime for the screen.  Headbands became a fashion item after Olivia Newton John released her ‘Lets get physical’ video.   If you can carry off the Olivia Newton John outfit of headband, lycra pants and top, with acrylic leg warmers then go for an  80s fancy dress to stun them all!  It’s a fun look and who knows may start you off an exercise regime!! 

Jeans – People still remember the Levi jean advert in 1985 when Nick Kamen stripped off his 501’s in the launderette.  This Levi jean advert helped promote the blue jeans and we all started spending over £20 for our jeans!
A pair of Levis with trainers can be a very easy 80s fancy dress if you want to keep your outfit low key.  Ladies can top it off with a soft ruffled blouse romantic style and the men can wear the Miami Vice no collar style shirt and sneakers.

New Romantics -The New Romantic look that was styled by Vivienne Westwood used frills for a softer look. Princess Diana, Duran Duran and Adam Ant often wore new romantics.  This moved on to become the pirate look of the 80s fashion. The men wore waistbands, cummerbunds and jackets with velvet lapels.

The 1980s fashion cover a wide range of outfits.  All you have to do is decide what you costume want wear. Madonna, Adam Ant, Jeans and sneakers or Olivia Newton John, they’re all fun and will look fabulous.
