80s Costume Party Ideas: Miami Vice

Miami Vice costume ideaWhether you fancy yourself Crockett or Tubbs, the key to getting your vintage South Florida on is the suit. You will need the following pieces to complete the Miami Vice 80s costume:

  • Go several days without shaving (the stubble is so sexy!)
  • You’ll need a t-shirt (brightly colored preferred)
  • Baggy white or pastel suit
  • Loafers – no socks
  • Boss shades (aviators are best)

Here is a video clip from the pilot with the Phil Collins song, “In the Air Tonight” to set the mood. http://youtu.be/7JJip8Wk0Ag
