Punk Anarchist Costumes for Men

Punk rock started around the mid 1970s and developed into many different styles in the early 80s. It was not only the music that was anti-establishment, but the clothing, too. Tartan was popular with the upper classes, and punks wore it to rebel against them, along with offensive T-shirts, ripped clothing, leather jackets, safety pins, spiked and studded jewellery etc.

Punk fashion is a fun fancy dress idea which is also ideal for Halloween, and this anarchist outfit includes a jacket, top and tartan trousers. As with most fancy dress costumes the accessories are not included, allowing you to accessorize the outfit however you desire. Here are some suggestions.

A paint-splattered leotard was usually worn with plain or shiny leggings, and splatter leggings were worn with a plain or shiny leotard, but it was rare to see both the same design of leggings and leotard together, although the rules of fashion were there to be broken back in the 1980s, so I'm pretty sure that there were some fitness freaks who wore both together!

Unfortunately, leotards, bodysuits, leggings and footless tights adorned with a splatter paint design are very hard to find these days, but not impossible.

You will notice that I managed to find some awesome leggings at Amazon below, which are perfectly 80s.
