Create the 80s Madonna Look!
Ahhh the 80s Madonna look! Who doesn't want to give this a go? Actually it wouldn't surprise me if this style comes back even.
Think sexy and busty tops.
Then, add lace.. your lacey bra is quite acceptable.
Bonus points if you find a mesh shirt.
If it's cold, wear a denim jacket.
Find some leggings to wear under a short skirt.
Now, buy a pair of fingerless lace gloves. You probably will have to buy these online. Click on the gloves, to see more detail and prices.
And go treasure hunting for plenty of 80s Madonna fashion accessories.
Wear a couple of necklaces if you can. Include large crosses and strings of fake pearls. (More than one is okay)
To be sure you have done well with the 80s Madonna fashion, you need bracelets. Plenty of bracelets. The last time I checked you could get a pack of 10 or so slim, silver bracelets from the $2 shop. If you can, get the rubber bracelets too.
Especially if you can find the black ones that looked like o ring seals from 44 gallon drums.
We used to wear those all the time in the 80s. It was absolute treasure to find a 44 gallon drum that still had one. I remember my step mum telling me that one day I would look back and laugh at how we used to wear them. Of course, she is right!!
Have your right earring more dangley than your left.. A dangley cross would be pretty much perfect. Don't forget to mismatch your earrings.
Make sure you include a big belt, as Madonna loved them. Find a wide belt with spikes, bright colours and maybe even a big buckle. This exact style of "Boy Toy" buckle is available at in the 80s belts section of the
80s Amazon store. Shoes are pretty easy. Wear whatever you want. Madonna wore plenty of dance shoes, which seemed quite sensible. Make sure you wear cute socks with them though, or wear high cut boots.
Have fun with getting your 80s Madonna look created. Like I've said before, looking for your clothes and accessories can be half of the fun. (Or half of the nightmare - lol)
With your makeup, make sure you pile on plenty of eyeliner, and use a dark red lippy. Ooops, don't forget your beauty spot!!! (Use black or brown eyeliner to create your beauty spot)
Anyway, I reckon if you wore this to an 80s fancy dress, people would know who you are trying to be. I just do not know how to get the costume sorted easily, as I am pretty sure you do not have a cone bra in your cupboard.
I guess you could be creative, and use disposable cones (like you get the cordial ice cones in, which you could attach onto your bra. Hmmm or get creative with coffee filters? Otherwise, you may have to hire or buy this particular costume.
