80s accessories are pretty cheap for the most part, and will give your 80s costume va-voom! I am really excited writing this.
This is the treasure! Ask family and friends. You never know who has what. Surely an aunt or family member would have some absolute beauties.
As always, hunt down your local $2 shop, opportunity / charity shops, and check out your online stores.
This photo below is from a recent 80s party, and as you can see, there’s no shortage of 80s accessories! These ladies have the belts, earrings, fingerless gloves, fake neck laces, hair bows and sunnies! What a great effort!
With so may accessories to choose, I will start from the top, and we’ll work our way to the bottom.
- 80s Hats
80s hats will not be needed for most of your 80s costumes, as it will hide your awesome 80s Hair! So do not worry too much, or make the 80s hat much of a priority, when designing your 80s fashion outfit.
If however, by some freak of nature you can get your hands on one of these, please wear it!

If you are a girl, it’s important to add plenty of accessories, including the 80s hair accessories. The good news is that these 80s hair accessories are for the most part, readily available, and around $2.
- 80s Sunglasses
80s sunglasses were definitely a statement of cool, I guess as sunglasses pretty much have always been. From Ray Ban goodness such as the 80s Wayfarers and Aviators, immortalised by Tom Cruise, to the cheap and nasty.. Although, the nastier, the better for your 80s costume.
