80s Earrings and Necklace Sets

A ladies 80s costume is never going to look quite complete without a few accessories. One or two pieces of jewellery can work wonders on your 80s look, transforming it into a real head-turner.



Neon 80's Earrings, Necklaces and Bracelets Set
Neon Earrings, Bracelets and Necklaces Set (UK)
This complete neon jewellery set by Blue Planet Online is ideal for adding to your 1980s costume, and comes in five different colours. Try as I might, I could not find this item in the U.S. However, you will find a nice range of 80s Jewelry at Amazon.com. I also recommend searching for Neon Jewelry.

You can't get more 80s than neon geometric shapes, and this set featuring squares and triangles fits the bill just perfectly. I remember very similar beaded necklaces and big, geometric earrings being worn by 80s pop star Cyndi Lauper.

Cyndi Lauper Look-A-Like
This picture should give you some inspiration for creating an authentic 80s style. The fiery wig could be used to create a punk or Cyndi Lauper look. A stack of bangles, jelly wrist bands, faux pearl necklaces and dangle star earrings will create an authentic 80s fashion style, using a mix of clashing colours. Fingerless, fishnet/mesh gloves were also made popular by Madonna.

By far, the best place to look for 80s earrings is Amazon. They have an extensive range that comes in all shapes and sizes. I'll show you some examples further down the page, but for now you might want to check the following links;

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Embed from Getty Images Debbie Harry Fridge Magnet Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today. Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on! I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier! After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave s

Create an 80s Aerobics Fashion Look

Let's Get Physical 80s Workout Costume During the early 1980s, it felt like the whole world had gone aerobics crazy. Females everywhere donned leotards, leggings, headbands and legwarmers, and some were even on rollerskates! Pop stars and actresses were responsible for starting the craze. Olivia Newton-John started a headband fad after the release of here raunchy Physical video in 1981, and the song quickly became an aerobics anthem. And just about every home had a Jane Fonda workout video in their collection - often proudly on display on a book shelf in the living room, or carefully placed on a coffee table for all to see. However, contrary to popular belief, not everyone was wearing neon. Take a look back at the old workout videos and you'll see a whole range of colours and styles being worn. Some leotards were shiny, some had stripes and others were pastel. Zebra stripes, leopard print, and splatter paint designs were also worn by some. There were often (but not always)

Create Your Own E.T. The Extra Terrestrial Costume

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial was the highest-grossing movie of the 80s, and many regard it as one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time. The Spielberg classic tells the story of a lonely boy named Elliot who becomes friend with a stranded extra terrestrial who needs to get back home - we all remember that classic "E.T. phone home" moment, don't we? If you're looking for a unique costume idea for a 1980s, sci-fi or film and TV party or event, or maybe Halloween, then an E.T. costume should fit the bill for both men or women. Adult Elliot Costume (US) Adult ET Costume (UK ) Now, you can buy a ready-made ET outfit from Amazon UK or Amazon.com. However, although it's convenient, it's also pretty expensive, and you can very easily create your own costume for a fraction of the cost. You'll notice that ET is wearing a red hoodie and blue jeans in the picture above for the UK costume. However, in the film, it is Elliot who wears this, and
