You don’t need a time machine to put together these 1980s Halloween costumes!

It’s ironic I get to write this post because while you have all gotten to know me as a source of thrifting advice and 1980s inspiration, I actually lost an ’80s costume contest earlier in the year. I didn’t even place!

But that was the past and I’m over it. However, I’m NOT over 1980s fashion! I’ve worn many looks dedicated to the 1980s, most as everyday outfits. Here’s the best of the best to inspire your next 1980s Halloween costume or any time you have to dress like the decade. Psst.. most are thrifted & DIY!

Jennfier Parker from Back To The Future

Great Scott! This look was partially put together last minute but with more time I would have added a wig and a better vest. Go back in my archive to look at this costume in full.
