80s Earrings and Necklace Sets

A ladies 80s costume is never going to look quite complete without a few accessories. One or two pieces of jewellery can work wonders on your 80s look, transforming it into a real head-turner.



Neon 80's Earrings, Necklaces and Bracelets Set
Neon Earrings, Bracelets and Necklaces Set (UK)
This complete neon jewellery set by Blue Planet Online is ideal for adding to your 1980s costume, and comes in five different colours. Try as I might, I could not find this item in the U.S. However, you will find a nice range of 80s Jewelry at Amazon.com. I also recommend searching for Neon Jewelry.

You can't get more 80s than neon geometric shapes, and this set featuring squares and triangles fits the bill just perfectly. I remember very similar beaded necklaces and big, geometric earrings being worn by 80s pop star Cyndi Lauper.

Cyndi Lauper Look-A-Like
This picture should give you some inspiration for creating an authentic 80s style. The fiery wig could be used to create a punk or Cyndi Lauper look. A stack of bangles, jelly wrist bands, faux pearl necklaces and dangle star earrings will create an authentic 80s fashion style, using a mix of clashing colours. Fingerless, fishnet/mesh gloves were also made popular by Madonna.

By far, the best place to look for 80s earrings is Amazon. They have an extensive range that comes in all shapes and sizes. I'll show you some examples further down the page, but for now you might want to check the following links;

By far, the most popular 80s jewellery item on my website (simplyeighties.com) is this set of four neon necklaces; one pink, one yellow, one green and one orange. The customer reviews are excellent, and the price is low. These can also be bought at Amazon.com (U.S.).

You could also add black and white beads or a crucifix to create a Madonna style...

Earrings

Earrings were often over-sized and in neon colours like some of these below. Geometrical shapes such as stars and triangles, and animal print were popular in the 80s.

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Embed from Getty Images
Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today.

Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on!

I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier!

After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave scene. However, it wasn't until 197…

Create an 80s Party Girl Costume

For this post I'm going to show you how to quickly piece together a costume similar to the one featured above, or create your own variation of it. The main focus of the outfit is the 80s Party Girl T-shirt which has eye-catching, Katharine Hamnett style block lettering in neon colours. Now, you can, of course, use different accessories to create many looks based around the tee. Let me show you how to create the look from top to toe.

The T-shirt

Obviously, this is the main component and I've linked to ebay above where there are usually at least a couple of suppliers selling the tee. If you're from the UK then you can also buy the shirt at Amazon. In the United States, there are many suppliers selling tees based on the slogan at Amazon.com.

Shirts and sweatshirts were often worn off one shoulder and were over-sized, sometimes doubling-up as a dress. I recommend ordering at least a size-up to ensure you achieve a loose look. You can buy T-shirts that are designed to be worn o…

Create a Tina Turner 1980s Fancy Dress Costume

Ask anyone to name a few great female singers from the 80s and it's highly likely that they will mention Tina Turner. This lady was huge back in the eighties, with hits including What's Love Got To Do With Itand We Don't Need Another Hero, to name but a few.

If you want to be simply the best dressed person at a fancy dress party, then why not try this gorgeous, shiny Tina Turner dress featured above?  If you're going to an 80s or pop star themed party then this costume is ideal but it can, of course, be used for other fancy dress events.



Although I have linked to the U.S. Amazon store, the costume is not available here, sadly, although you will find a range of wigs and a couple of suitable dresses. However, there are costumes available on ebay, and the prices are very decent. This link will work in any English speaking country.

You can buy an even more authentic-looking dress from Amazon, I remember two very different gold dress that Tina wore back in the 80s, one of …
