80s Says Relax T-shirt for Women

Woman wearing a white cropped t-shirt with 80s says relax slogan, pink sweatbands and black leggings

While the Frankie Say(s) Relax T-shirt remains the No.1 slogan T-shirt for wearing to 1980s festivals and events, you may want to choose something just a little different for a change, and I have just the T-shirt for you!

This white, cropped 80s Says Relax T-shirt is available for ladies from the Amscan store on Amazon UK, and comes in two sizes; 8-12 and 12-14. It features a crisp print quality and the slogan is partly in the same style as the Frankie Says and Wham! Choose Life tees that were huge back in the mid-1980s.

You can create a complete costume by adding some simple accessories, such as the pink headband, wristbands and black leggings as shown being worn by the female model. You may also want to add leg warmers and fishnet fingerless gloves, too, and you could also add this fun inflatable ghettoblaster to really complete your look.

Of course, these items were also hugely popular back then, with a fitness craze sweeping the nation, fuelled by Jane Fonda's workout videos and the TV series and movie Fame.

This set includes everything you need to create a costume, and also comes in blue and neon green. It's hugely popular on my Simply Eighties website, and I recommend scrunching up the leggings by pushing them downwards for an authentic 80s look.

Of course, you can go for the classic Frankie Says relax tee, and the one I have chosen above is the most popular and highly rated by customers through my website.

Now you can opt for just plain black leggings and they certainly help to make the neon sweatbands really stand out. However, the pair shown here comes in a wide variety of colours and also plus sizes. Geometric shapes were big in the 80s, and you may like to add those eye-catching, colourful leggings above.

The 80s Says Relax T-shirt can also be bought on ebay, so you may want to check the latest prices on here, too, to get a good deal.

So there you have it, I hope you like my ideas for this post. Have fun at whatever event you're planning on going to.

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

An 80s Tennis Player Costume? You Cannot Be Serious!

While most people opt for a pop star theme when dressing up for an 80s party or event, one option that is a little more original is to dress like an 80s tennis player. The costumes I'm about to show are obviously based on John McEnroe, and I'm dead serious! The short-tempered tennis star became infamous for his confrontational behaviour towards the umpire during the 1980s, screaming "Answer my question! The question, jerk!" (when he angrily threw his racket at the juice cart) and "You can't be serious man, you cannot be serious!" when he thought the umpire had made a bad call about the ball being out. He was often booed by the crowds for his rants, but it was hugely entertaining to watch! Embed from Getty Images The look above is the one you should aim for, and this is the most iconic. So let's take a look at the fancy dress costume options available...     The white T-shirt and shorts outfit with red and blue stripes is based on McEn

Create an 80s or 90s Acid House - Raver Look

With its squelching bass sounds (often created using a Roland TB-303 bass synth) and minimalist production, the sound of acid house first became popular in the latter half of the 80s, starting in 1987. The media were more focused on the illegal raves and psychedelic drugs, but in reality, a good many young folk enjoyed dancing to the new sound in nightclubs (including myself) without going anywhere near any drugs or illegal raves. What is synonymous with the acid house scene is the smiley face logo, and the T-shirt featuring the logo, along with tie dye and psychedelic clothing, and bucket hats which became popular with ravers. Baggy over the knee shorts were popular with men. Bandanas and dungarees/dungaree shorts were also worn by both sexes. Some ravers also had  yellow whistles . In the early 90s,  white overalls , hooded anoracks and  yellow dust masks with an "E" , smiley face or radiation symbol also became part of the rave scene. Initially, the dust masks we
