Roundtable Discussion | How to Properly Dress for an 80s Party
You’re invited to an 80s party, in particular, THIS party! Just one problem though, what do you wear? How do you properly dress for a party in the decade you made your debut? Or maybe you missed the 80s and came a little too late to experience the awesomeness. In that case, it’s even more necessary for you to read some ideas of what you will wear for the New Kids on the Block 80′s/Craft Beer Party!
Slot sunglasses for sure.
Cory – Those are shutter shades!
This is a subject I feel very well-versed in. You can never go wrong with neon tights/leggings, leotards, leg warmers, scrunchies, slouchy sweatshirts, and all of the hair spray.
The most important accessory for any themed party is the confidence to leave the house dressed that way. Especially if you need to stop for gas/a six pack on the way, and you’re seen in public.
No matter what the climate, Jorts must always be in the conversation.
Yeah, shutter shades! That’s what I meant!
Josh, you mean Never Nudes?
Just make sure no one mistakes it for a WMD
I really should have turned on Google Safe Search when looking for a picture Never Nudes to include in that last post.
Acid washed denim for any/all articles of clothing – jacket, shirt, pants, shorts -preferably ripped. Shorts must be obscenely short. Pants must be tight. Sleeves optional on all shirts. Skinny tie is encouraged, even if shirt is sans collar or sleeves. Dangling cross earring will up the ante.
Definitely lots of neon, a pair of leg warmers, and of course a side ponytail secured with a scrunchie.
One of those tri-colored flat billed neon hats for sure. Acid washed jean jacket with 80’s hair metal band patches all over, and skinny jeans with holes in both knees.
Aptly timed, I recently found this photoo (taken on a family road trip from Chicago to Fort Collins actually)
Wish I still could rock this purple stone washed skirt. Stone wash was the best! … Not so much the mullet, but I suppose it fit the time.
No worries Michelle, I was rocking the mullet too.
The brother haircut to the mullet… the bowl cut. You know errbody had one. Oh and Reebok pumps, i’m not talking about the BS they RE came out with a few years ago.
