80s Fancy Dress Costumes
C'mon. Who doesn't love the 80s? All together now: wake me up before you go go, don't leave me hanging on the phone. Those were the days. Shoulders were square and hair was big. Men wore mullets, ladies wore leggings. We might have had miners' strikes and the poll tax but there was Wham, Boy George, Queen, Van Halen, and Madness. Something for everyone!
Are some remnants of the 80s lurking in the back of your wardrobe? Be honest. Perhaps a favourite slogan tee-shirt? Leggings? Or even a shell suit. Remember them?
Possibly the most glam decade of all, there's no better theme for your fancy dress. Along with the 70s this was the decade where music really influenced fashion. Think big hair, fake tan, mohawks, sequins, flares, shoulder pads and over-the-top hair. What 80s fashion statement are you?
Of course not all 80s fashion was good. Oversized batwing tops and stirrup pants are probably not a good look even for fancy dress. But an 80s theme will bring out the disco diva in you – and that's just the boys!
