From our collection of 80's costumes this is one of those fashions that was thankfully short lived, but now, it's all the rage at eighties parties!

The 80s Rapper Costume - 80s Fashion

October is here which means Halloween is just around the corner, so we decided to drop some helpful hints on some great 80s costume ideas! The Bucket Hat had been around for quite sometime before the 1980s, however when popular 80s rappers started to wear them people took notice, and the brand of choice was Kangol. If you want to dress like a rock star, you can choose animal print tops, lycra pants and lots of belts and mesh shirts.

And completing the look is the obligatory baseball cap, this one using all of the colours, lime green, multi-coloured and plain fabrics to create that very distinctive look. With great music in the 1980s like Kiss, Van Halen, Prince, Madonna and Queen we have the 80s rock costume look to get you revved up.

To get yourself a cheaper version, look for affordable glasses that have oversized, thick frames, transparent lenses with an ombre design, and a geometric shape. Our Hip Hop costume comprises of a long sleeved jacket in neon lime green (back) blue and black and it's trimmed around the collar and along the full length zipper with a multi-coloured fabric which was so loved 'back in the day'. For women, torn mesh t-shirts and layers of off the shoulder torn band shirts is another authentic 80s rocker chick look.Merging street culture with rap music, the hip-hop revolution along with hip-hop fashion rose from the ashes and became one of the most famous movements of the decade. After the video, however, it became one of the most iconic 1980s accessories, with rappers and fashionistas wearing the brand’s iconic Kangaroo logo on their heads. Get yourself the biggest hair and really colourful makeup and you will look like you walked out of MTV. The whole concept of the B-Boy style and hip-hop fashion was to use sportswear as fashion and the tracksuit was one of the most iconic and highly-coveted sets of clothing everyone wanted to wear. Other shoes you can wear with your tracksuit include Bally shoes, which was a favorite of rapper Slick Rick, Puma suedes, Converse All-Stars, or the Adidas Gazelle.
