|Off-Shoulder Batwing Sleeved Top (UK)|
This low-cost, long top with batwing sleeves is available in a wide range of colours and sizes from 8-22. Reviews suggest that you should order a larger size than normal as it is a little clingy, but It's a popular choice through my website SimplyEighties.com and the grey is ideal for creating an 80s flashdance look.

As with the pink tee, customer feedback suggest you really need to order a size up, and for an authentic 1980s style, a loose fit tee is recommended.
Another popular 80s fashion was the crop top, and these can also be worn off one shoulder, too. This trend was started by Madonna after she wore a cropped mesh top in the video for her hit song Lucky Star. It quickly caught on, and flashing your belly button became highly popular with teen girls.
The black, cropped mesh top shown above is ideal for Madonna or 80s Punk dress-up.
