|80s Skidz Pants Costume|
This costume featured here includes pink zebra print Skidz style baggy pants and an "I Love the 80s" T-shirt. If you're looking for a low-cost and easy-to-wear costume then this is ideal. It doesn't include the boombox, pink wayfarers or trainers/sneakers, but this leaves you free to accessorise the costume in your own style.
To create an authentic costume you would, of course, need to locate an original pair of Skidz. As that would be a pretty time consuming task it would be far wiser and easier to go down the faux Skidz route!
However, ebay is the perfect site to find original Skidz. They're not cheap, but for an authentic look it's worth paying the price. They came in a wide variety of print designs, including plaid, stripes, shapes and zig zags.

|Splash Pattern Gym Baggies|
|Zebra Print Cotton Pants|
Also available at amazon.com (US)
An easy way to complete your look would be to simply wear an 80s T-shirt and some cheap hi-top trainers.
