EXPIRED

Bit of a long shot but any ideas for my sons 1980's fashion show at primary school?

He doesn't fancy Boy George or Adam Ant - any ideas greatly received :-)

no particular answer, but try putting in eighties fashion and eighties fancy dress into google and see what was good then.
good luck

Nick Heyward had some interesting and identifiable looks, or you could go with the football shirt from his team with a curly perm wig.

Haircut 100, jeans, trainers, cricket jumper. Could have jumper on back with arms around neck. "RELAX" T-shirt. Yer I wos there! :-)

someone downvoted you, I fixed it because this post is absolute 80's to me. At 45, I was well and truly there while this was happening. Everyone had a Frankie says tshirt.

good luck! Got something similar for my daughter - has to dress as someone from 1994, bloomin nightmare!

Still, none of it can compare to our photos of us in the 70's eh? Mother what did you dress me in?? "You liked to choose your own clothes." I had a shocking perm in the 90's too, so maybe it wasn't all bad lol

I'd got for Madness or the Specials, bit of two tone.

Or Run Dmc - that's a cool and easy iconic look, hat, trainers, jeans, sports top glasses and chain. Inflatable Ghetto blaster.

Unless you really want to be out there and go for the Cameo cod piece style. Word up.
