For this post, I'm going to take a look at a fantastic new, easy to wear 5 piece 1980s costume set for women by Zac's Alter Ego. If you want an instant 80s look without worrying about the size of the costume and the hassle involved with sending it back if it's wrong, then this outfit is for you!
I also like this set because you can add your own top, which allows you to add your own unique twist and reduce the chances of other people at the party/event looking exactly like you!
There are two styles available and both include an elasticated tutu skirt which will fit most sizes. The first set includes a leopard print skirt, black lace hair bow (on a headband), long black fishnet gloves, black fishnet tights and black beaded necklace.
The second set includes a black skirt and the same accessories in pink, rather than black.
Buy from London Accessories Boutique at Amazon UK

The set represents excellent value and you only need to add a top to complete your look. However, as the skirt is a tutu, it is a little translucent. I feel it may have been better to include leggings with the costume. I would suggest wearing either a black mini dress, shorts or a leotard under that tutu.
You may like to add jelly bracelets and leg warmers to make it even more 80s. To make your look more Madonna-like, add a black lace bra and fishnet top. You can use a black sports bra if you're not comfortable with the lace - many ladies do!
So to recap the positives of this costume;
1. It's easy to wear.
2. You can add your own choice of top.
3. It's not expensive.
1. The skirt is rather thin.
