All my fashionistas and 80's babies.... I need help. What do I wear to an 80's party?I was a genuine product of the 80's! We wore parachute pants and straight-leg jeans, as tight as you could get them! If you did not have to lay down on the bed to zip them, they were not tight enough! Silky, shiny, nylon warm-up suits were popular, too, and "satin" jackets. Sweatshirts and tee shirts with the shoulders cut out or off one shoulder (a la Flashdance) were all the rage. Spandex leggings, with a long shirt cinched with a wide belt was a popular look. T-shirts, with the sleeves and the torso (up to just under the bust), cut into strips were a hot fad for a while. they were called string t-shirts. I had one with a unicorn on it, very 80s. For footwear, you have two main choices. With jeans, you should wear boots with a heel, jeans tucked in, and covered with leg-warmers. Anyone who can knit or crochet can make those. Color-coordinated with your shirt was very hot. You can wear a straight, mid-thigh-length skirt (leather, or pleather, is perfect) with hose, and lacy, ruffled ankle socks with high heels (see the ZZ Topp video : She's Got Legs, for reference). You can get the socks at Priscilla's. Lots of chunky bangle bracelets and big hoop earrings are required jewelry. See if your mom, aunts, or anybody still has a Lindy-Star ring in their jewelry box. They will know what you are talking about, everybody had one of those back in the day. Mood rings were popular. Multiple necklaces were often worn, too. Hair, as big as you can get it, will finish the look. You can set it on curlers. When dry, turn your head upside down and tousle with your fingers, do not comb or brush. Or make a zillion tiny braids when it's wet, let dry, then turn your head upside down and brush, that's what some of us did. Use a half a can of hairspray, at least, to keep the "poof." You can do your bangs with a curling iron, just make sure to comb them up and spray well, you can not have flat bangs! Big bows, scrunchies, and such, came along during that time, too. For make-up, I wore sky blue and bubblegum pink eye-shadow (together. Blue on the lid, and pink up to the brow, with a line of blue from the corner of my eye, up to the outer end of my eyebrow), and a tawny-peachy blush (bronzer or any peachy blush will work). Lots of girls were wearing really scary-bright colors, though! Eyeliner and lots of black mascara are practically required. I wore cranberry colored nail polish usually, and my lipstick was called "Sea Fleur" or something like that. It was by L'Oreal, and I think they still make it. It was a purple-red, at any rate. Sometimes I wore copper, whatever matched my clothes best. Some girls wore frosty pink, or whatever. You could do your own thing with make-up, pretty much, as long as it did not look natural! If you can find pics of any of the 80s girl bands, you can get good ideas. The Bangles practically oozed eighties-ness! Movies made in the 80s helped start the trends, and define the styles, so that's a good place to look, as are the old 80s pop and rock videos. Ask your mom, and any older cousins, aunts etc. what they wore back then. If you are lucky, maybe you've got a pack-rat in the family, who's been hanging onto a pair of leg-warmers or something, just waiting for them to come back in style! Sometimes, these people eventually give up, or pass on, and you can find great retro looks at Goodwill or other thrift stores. A costume shop could probably help you out, too. Anybody from 35-55 should have good recollections, and be a source of advice, on the greatest decade that ever was! Hope I helped, good luck!
