Madonna 80s Fashion After Halloween

Like myself, most people probably won’t be shopping for a Halloween costume again, including (Madonna costumes) until next year, right? Well that depends. 80s fashion has been popular since it’s infancy and quite frankly continues to be.

There are many other fun occasions where a costume of sorts can be used, think about it. Costume parties for one, there are many characters you can sport besides the usual Toga outfit or what ever.

That’s where Madonna and her style of attire come into play. Madge’s 80s style fashion isn’t only about her big hairdos and red lipstick, its also about her bangle bracelets, hair ties, wild belts, cool low boots/booties etc., all accessories that you can easily use to create your own 80s style with, or apply your efforts to going all out and becoming the best damn Madonna you can, or even another fashionable, totally tubular woman of the 80s.

Don’t hang your costume clothing up in the closet for the year to collect dust, bring it back to life, at least intermittent life, with some new accessories or wig and makeup. There’s always room for, and a time for, 80s like fashion. A trend that will never die!

80s Fashion Trends

Living in California for almost ten years (mid 70s to mid 80s) I discovered first hand that most of the fashion trends, in the US anyway, tend to begin in the West because that’s where most of the Stars reside , then move far east, leaving the mid range of the US wondering what they should be wearing at the time, not to mention that the speed of which this happens is amazing! 80s fashion was No different. Besides the fact that one of the icons that made this type fashion a hit and played a huge role in creating it, “Madonna” started her career in NY.

A few times a year, there seems to be a shift in fashions. I take a look around at fashion today and get a little confused. I see all the high school stuff. From clothing, to jewelry, to shoes, to makeup. It all changes rapidly, but yet seems to flow in a circle. You never know what to buy because the trends come & go so quickly. Quite often you can look back at the things you wore when you were young and wonder, what were you thinking?

I can now see why my parents would stop, stare and snicker at times. They probably thought, “What in the world is he doing?” Regardless of the latest fashion, as a parent you might as well get informed or your kids may leave you in the dust. Don’t you want to know what’s going on?

“What was with the jelly bracelets in the 80s fashion trends?” Can you believe that jelly bracelets have come back around already? Are these really part of the current fashion trends again? Yes indeed! They were just here in the 80s, made extremely popular by Madonna. I also wonder, is the big hair coming back next? “Already Started my friends!”

If you are lacking in the fashion department regardless of your current age, it’s certainly not hard to catch up.
