Welcome to the age of rock stars, big hair, and tight pants . . . where you party all night, and sleep all day. 1980s, THE decade. Step back in time with us and use our five easy steps to moonwalk down memory lane.
Step 1: Shirt
Depending on where you are going, ditch your brand name gear and grab your 1981 Journey: Live in Houston shirt, jersey style with 3/4 inch black sleeves.
Concert tees are best - do your homework and make sure you get the right band ( e.g. Def Leppard, Guns N' Roses, Van Halen, etc.).
Don't let yourself get caught in the cold without a leather and/or MEMBERS ONLY jacket.
Old sport coats, with the sleeves rolled up, with a plain white dress shirt can add just the right flavor to your party outfit.
Step 2: Pants
Khaki's are so faddish - if you're going to really stick it to the man, your legs better be dressed to mess.
If you wear jeans, acid wash (splotchy and bleached) is best. The tighter the better, have your mother sew them so that they taper on the bottom.
-Don't forget to fold up the bottoms, but fold the edge in first to create the right cuff and make them perfectly tight!
Leather pants, parachute pants, wrestler pants with neon designs and velcro, or spandex will make sure that your onlookers take you seriously.
Whatever pants you wear . . . if you're comfortable, then they aren't tight enough!
Step 3: Shoes
Toss in your Doc Marten's and jump in your loafers. There are many options that will work:
Old school Vans
Leather rock star boots
Step 4: Hair
Shout out and let everyone know that you're not afraid to do business in the front and a party in the back. If anything else fails in your ensemble, a mullet will make sure that you party like a rock star.
-Most likely your 80s kick will only be on weekends. Don't worry, mullets and other wigs are available in costume stores.
A Flock of Seagulls (like a reverse mullet, with the hair long in front).
Step 5: Accesssories
Ever see Top Gun? The sunglasses and other accessories are the final step to your transformation.
Skinny ties with geometric shapes.
Chains and rubber bracelets.
Bandanas tied to the left leg.
Step 6: Conclusion
VIOLA!! You have transformed to an 80s BABE!
