What to Wear to Your 80’s Themed Murder Mystery Party

October 31, 2023

Ah, the 80’s. A time of big hair, neon leggings, and tunes that still have us tapping our feet. So you’ve been invited to an 80’s themed murder mystery party and you’re wondering what to wear? Fear not, my friend, for I’ve got you covered. Grab your boombox, pull on those leg warmers, and let’s get started!

1. Embrace the Neon

If there’s one thing the 80’s taught us, it’s that more is more. Don’t shy away from bright, neon colors. Whether it’s a neon tracksuit, a pair of vibrant leggings, or a glow-in-the-dark accessory, you’ll fit right in with the 80’s vibe.

2. Leggings and Leg Warmers

If you’re going for a Flashdance or Fame look, leggings paired with colorful leg warmers are your best bet. Not only will you look the part, but you’ll also be super comfortable while you’re sleuthing for clues!

3. Off-the-Shoulder Tops

In the 80’s, shoulders were a big deal. Grab an off-the-shoulder sweatshirt and cut the neckband for that iconic slouchy look. Bonus points if it’s got a catchy 80’s slogan!

4. The Bigger the Hair, the Better

Tease it, spray it, and let it defy gravity. Big hair was all the rage, and it’s the perfect accessory for your 80’s attire. Think Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, or even the dudes from Mötley Crüe.

5. Denim and Leather Jackets

If you’re channeling your inner rockstar, nothing screams 80’s like a good old denim or leather jacket. Studs, patches, and pins will only add to the authenticity.

6. Accessorize!

Your 80’s outfit wouldn’t be complete without accessories. Chunky jewelry, fingerless gloves, and bandanas will add that extra oomph to your outfit. And let’s not forget the quintessential fanny pack!
