Jewelry - 80's
Create a decade costume that is as rad as the era it comes from with our 80s jewelry and accessories for women and men. Fashion in this decade focused on bright neon colors, unorthodox and cheap materials like plastic, and studded leather. Pop rock fads featured pink and green neon jelly bracelets and geometric shapes. Neon beads and hoop earrings are a great way to finish off your 80s diva look. For a more rock and roll style, opt for black leather cuffs and metallic colors. Studded wristbands fit in perfectly with the hair band style worn by bands like Motley Crue and Metallica. Bangles and chains are a fun pick for hip hop styles. Music ruled the fashion fads of the 80s, so pick your favorite band and try to draw inspiration from their on-stage looks to create the perfect 80s costume.
The 1980s were a time of new wave music and technological advances. Music from the eighties were dominated by hair bands, pop stars, and hip hop groups. Divas like Madonna, Blondie and Paula Abdul dominated the teen pop scene along with King of Pop Michael Jackson. Technology wasn't limited to the famous mix tape either. New advances in personal computers and video games meant that the average person could own these previously unobtainable items. The Nintendo Entertainment System made its debut in 1985, bringing gaming right into the living room of American families.
