How to dress like 80’s women

The 80s were an amazing time, but the clothes weren’t always so great. If you want to dress like an 80s woman, you’re going to want to look for these key elements:

-A colorful print: the colors of the 80s were loud and vibrant, so make sure your outfit has a lot of color.

-A tight, short skirt: if you’re going for full on 80s style, make sure your skirt is short enough that it would be considered provocative today. You can also pair it with knee high boots or platform shoes to really complete the look.

-Big hair: big hair is what makes an outfit truly 80s-style. If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, this should be easy enough to achieve. If not, try using some curling irons or hairspray to create that big ‘do!

Dress like the 80s with this step-by-step guide.

1. Wear a headband. Headbands are a quintessential part of any 80’s outfit—and they’re especially useful if you have long hair that you want to keep under control.

2. Try a high ponytail with bangs. This look is great for women who have bangs and want to wear them high up on their forehead without brushing them over their eyes or having them fall into their face all day long. If you don’t have bangs, try brushing your hair back so it goes just above your ears, then tie it up in a ponytail.

3. Add some glitter to your makeup routine! Don’t be afraid to use bright colors in your lipstick or eye shadow—it will only add to the effect of looking like an 80’s icon!
