How to Create an Individual 80s Look

By far, the most popular eighties fancy dress outfit is based around a tutu or rah rah/ ruffle skirt (neon or black), and put together with footless leggings/tights and/or legwarmers, lace or fishnet gloves (short or long and neon or black) and other accessories such as large earrings, neon jelly bands, neon beads, garters and a headband/bow.

In the first half of the 80s, the rah rah (or ra ra) was an attempt at a new mini-skirt revival. Tutus were also popular, and in the late 80s were often worn with denim jackets. They were also worn with leggings and/or leg warmers, the latter being kind of scrunched-up around the ankles.
