While pondering iconic woman of the 1980s, most people first think of Madonna. She was a sex symbol for the decade and her clothing was certainly unforgettable. With bright neon colors, a big hair bow, mesh top, lace skirt and gloves you can easily recreate her look. Since Halloween traditionally has a horror theme, Elvira is another woman of the 80s that could undoubtedly fit the motif. She's not only sexy, but easily identifiable too. If you want a wilder costume, take some tips from Cyndi Lauper's wardrobe and you're sure to end up with the perfect 80s outfit.

The 80s featured a lot of great music, and each scene came with its own unique style. Rap was starting to come into its own, and there were outrageous outfits galore (look no further than the Salt n Pepa video for 'push it' for an example). The 1980s pop and new wave scene inspired many awesomely bad costumes and women's hair styles that can be easily recreated with enough hairspray or a punk rock wig.

Many women decide to go with sexy or provocative costumes for Halloween and lots of 80s costumes coincide with that decision. If a woman needs inspiration for skimpy 1980s attire, all she has to do is watch a few hair metal videos. Videos from bands like Def Leppard, Poison and Whitesnake all feature scantily clad groupies in heavy doses. A quick YouTube visit will confirm this (take notes ladies!).

The 80s were a decade that many people look back on fondly. The music and fashion were indulgent, fun and sometimes cheesy. For better or worse, the 1980s are a lot of fun to revisit, and Halloween makes for a perfect excuse to do so. For your next costume party, take a trip back in time. You will be glad you did.
