80s Fancy Dress

So the missus has conned you into going to an 80’s dress up party? Don’t sweat it. Your fancy dress is really easy. Plus you will look super hot, and these outfits are still classics today, so they will be really cheap to organise!

(Plus did I mention they are easy to do and will definitely turn heads?!)

Can you just picture your entrance..? (Or entrance to the lounge after a few beverages..) “Just take those old records off the shelf…”

I am pretty confident that you or your mates will have most of the items in your wardrobe already. Look at the gear below, and think about what you have already.
