|Not sure what to wear to an
party or how to put together the perfect 80s Halloween costume?
This is your guide to what to wear to an 80s party. The key to
achieving the 80s look, regardless of the specific costume you
choose, is excess. It was after all the decade of excess – the
me decade, the greed decade. So don’t skimp or be weighed down
or held back by your 90s and 00s sensibilities – go for it. Add
the extra layer of blush or blue eyeliner, go for another spray
with the Aqua Net, and pile on another couple of bracelets.
Moderation is for other decades – there are no points for class,
subtly or understatement. The 80s look is about color, volume,
and abundance. Whether you choose the Like a Virgin, the
Preppie, or the Let’s Get Physical, do it with flourish and
abandonment. Choose from the 80's costume party ideas below or
use them as inspiration and develop your own.
