Creating a Kim Wilde costume for events such as 80s Rewind or an 80s costume party should be a pretty easy affair. For the top you need to look for something that is cut quite high across the neckline. A search on google presented me with tops that were all cut too low around the neck, but I managed to find these tops at Amazon.co.uk...
|Striped Adult Jumper|
This low-cost fancy dress jumper can be tucked into a pair of tight, black jeans.
|Black and Red Striped Men's T-shirt|
It's interesting that during my search I soon discovered that this design is associated with bad people including Dennis The Menace and Freddy Kreuger!
Now, to ensure you don't get confused for either of those two, and to cover the fact that this is a short-sleeved tee and not a long-sleeved one that Kim wore, you could wear a black blazer over the top just as Kim did in her Kids in America video and some promotional photos.
|Black and White Striped Tee|
As I previously mentioned. the black and white top that Kim actually wore during the 1980s was actually a shiny tank top and with a high neckline, but finding an exact replica has been impossible.
|Blush Avenue Unisex Striped T-shirt|
The best option I could find was this unisex tee which is available for quite a low price, making it ideal for dress-up purposes.

|Women's Open Black Blazer Jacket|
For the blazer you need something that is tailored and has an open design and in plain black. This jacket by LuShmily is ideal and available for a very reasonable price, too. Should this item become unavailable, then you may like the jacket below...
