80's Fancy Dress

80s Fancy Dress

Immerse yourself into the world of the 1980s with our Ladies 1980s Fancy Dress Costumes. 80s fancy dress is one of our most popular ranges, especially for the ladies. As you can see, we have a wide range of 80’s fancy dress costumes and accessories.

The 80s is synonymous with the assassination of the Beatles icon John Lennon, the release of the Pac-man video game and the Rubik’s Cube becomes the most popular game on the planet.

Early 1980s fashion was very similar to the late 1970s. In 1983 there was a slight 1950s-style throwback, especially in women’s dresses. By the mid-80s, pop music stars like Cyndi Lauper and Madonna were ushering in an entirely new style — one that many people associate with the 1980s to this day.

Bright coloured accessories like sunglasses, bangles and hoop earrings were a necessity. Teased hair, loud makeup and neon were an important part of this style. This style was obviously more popular with the younger crowd.

But that didn’t mean “regular” women in the 1980s couldn’t have fun. It was an exceptionally flexible time when a woman could wear skin-tight cotton stirrup pants with leggings and a giant turtleneck sweater one day — and parachute pants with a small v-neck top and a high-waist belt the next.

80s Fancy Dress Ideas

1980s fancy dress offers a plethora of ideas when it comes to your look. There were neon legwarmers, lace net vest, the wild child Madonna look consisting of fishnet leggings, tutus and various tight fitting accessories.
