80s Polka Dot Ra-Ra Skirt Costume for Ladies

80s polka dot ra ra costume for women
80s Polka Dot Ra-Ra Costume
Polka dots seem to become fashionable at some point in almost every decade, and back in the 1980s, there was a resurgence in 1950s style polka dot fashion. Madonna wore black and white polka dot leggings with a white tutu skirt for the movie Who's That Girl, and Princess Diana donned several dotty outfits which had a strong 50s influence.

You can read more about 80s polka dot fashion at my website, but for this post I'm going to concentrate on a low-cost costume that will look fantastic at any 80s themed event or party, and you will certainly stand out from the crowd.

The costume above includes a pink polka dot ra-ra skirt and a matching bow headband. Unfortunately, it's only available in small/medium, so you may want to check out the alternative skirts below. The camisole top, leg warmers, lace tights and neon beads are not included, but you can buy these at low-cost from Amazon, and this leaves you free to create your own unique costume. As a suggestion, during the latter part of the decade, ra-ra skirts were worn with a blue denim jacket (sometimes covered in button badges), lace and leather.



Here are some great suggestions for completing your 80s costume;



The real benefit of buying a skirt is that you can create something very unique, adding as many or as few accessories as you choose. While buying a complete fancy dress costume is very convenient, it leaves you at risk of someone else at the party having chosen the exact same costume, which can be a little embarrassing!
