How to Dress for 80s Fashion
and 80s Fancy Dress Costumes

Custom Search

The 80s were a time of extravagance and indulgence. 80s fashion reflected this with our crazy combination of clothes, hair styles, accessories and makeup.

Here at 80s Fashion Fancy Dress, we are very excited to bring you pages of information, on how to wear 80s outfits, and explore the fashion fads and trends of the 80s with you.

Why? I LOVED the 80s, and have been waiting for them to come back, and guess what? Everywhere I look these days, I can see hints of 80s style in today's everyday trends.

High cut boots, raa raa skirts, retro tee shirts with rolled up sleeves, fluro neon clothing, fan-dangle accessories, just to name a few.

When the 80s fashion was so openly "No way" post 80s, it's curious as to why we are seeing so many 80s elements today.

I reckon that the fact that digital piracy (unauthorised downloading music and videos) is robbing artists of potential income, we have seen a massive revamp from 80s stars and icons, coming back and working the tour scene for their money.

And, I have read that the doom and gloom of the GFC has helped us to start to embrace a bit of a crazy, fun and wild interest in mixing up our fashion somewhat.

This is feeding our interest and hunger for more fun from that crazy era in 80s fashion, including fancy dress and costumes for 80s themed parties.

Even activities such as ten pin bowling and roller skating with quad skates is cool and fashionable these days.
