Quick and Easy 80s Skirt and Shirt Costumes

80s Layered Petticoat and Tee Costumes
80s Petticoat and Skirt Costumes
For this post I'm going to show you how to quickly put together a no-fuss 80s costume using low-cost accessories at Amazon in the U.S. and UK. You could make life really easy by simply purchasing the costume above (US only) which includes a choice of three brightly-coloured skirts and an "I Loveheart the 80's" black tee. However, although convenient, ready-made costumes tend to be more expensive than buying each item separately.



80s Shirts and Skirts in the U.S.

Let's take a look at a few 80s-themed Tees and tops...



You can get an authentic eighties look by using an off-shoulder loose and over-sized top, preferably with batwing sleeves. I would recommend ordering a larger size than normal to get that loose feel.

You will also find many very competitively-priced 80s Tees on ebay where all the top suppliers are selling their wares these days.

There are dozens more 80s T-shirt ideas on our website, too.

So what about the skirts? Layered, neon skirts are always a popular choice or you could go for a longer length, black skirt for a Madonna look.

To create a workout/fitness look use leggings instead of a skirt and add leg warmers and scrunch them up around the ankles.

This "LOVE" tee is a popular choice through our website SimplyEighties.com and was priced at just £8.99 as I write.

Off Shoulder Batwing Sleeve Baggy Slouch
This Flashdance style top is available in a wide range of colours and I recommend choosing dark grey or black for an authentic look. All you need to add are some black leggings and leg warmers and you have a complete Flashdance look. The pink and turquoise colours are also ideal for creating a more neon style.

I Love the 80s off-shoulder Tee with attached strap
I Love the 80s Tee with Strap
This is a very popular tee which is available for sizes from 8 to 14. I recommend ordering a larger size than normal, as feedback from customers who have bought the tee from Amazon links on our website Simplyeighties.com have suggested that it runs small.

Pac-Man Video Game Dress Costume for Women
Pac-Man Video Game Dress for Women
If you're looking for an 80s fancy dress costume that is original, quirky and low-cost then one of the many Pac-Man themed dresses featured on this page should fit the bill,

By the way, if you're reading this in the U.S. (around 50% of you will be if the Google stats are correct) then you'll be pleased to know that all of the items featured on this page can be bought at Amazon, too.

Pac-Man Dresses at Amazon.com (U.S.)

Pac-Man, of course, is one of the most recognised and loveable video game characters from the 1980s. When it was released into the arcades by Namco in 1980, the game took the World by storm and became one of the most highest-grossing video games of all time.

The first dress (above) features the highly-recognisable video game screen and is available at one of the UK's longest-running and most trustworthy fancy dress companies, Angels. At £10.99 (as I write) it's very decently priced and is available as "one size fits most" which is for 8 to 12. It's certainly eye-catching and ideal for 1980s and video game events and parties.
