If you don't wish to purchase a costume, but desire to create your own from regular clothing, you're in luck. Street fashion is trending toward the 80s, so look to your closet to create a unique look. The website 80s Fashion Fancy Dress provides lots of tips on how to build an authentic 80s style. Two things are imperative if you want to create an aura of just having time traveled from two decades past: leggings, lace, and big bows. Men should double layer polo shirts and wear acid wash jeans (found in thrift shops). Don't forget the shoulder pads! Angular fashion for both men and women was de rigeur, and shoulder pads helped to create a triangular look.
In any event, building your own cheap 80s style fancy dress for a costume party is easy when you know how to do it and where to go. Check out the 80s Fashion website for more info: 80s-fashion-fancy-dress.com/Clothes-Worn-in-80s.html
