Ideas for 80's day for spirit week

I am doing my practicum as a therapist in an elementary school and this week they have spirit week. Each day is something different, like sports day or mismatch day. Thursday is 80's day and I'm trying to think of what to wear. I was in elementary school then (born 11-79) so what i remember is mostly LA Gears, poofy hair and those pants with the attached skirt. I don't think i will find any LA Gears in adult sizes or even the weird skirt/Pants. I was thinking of checking Goodwill tomorrow but was wondering if anyone had ideas that were either kinda professional or atleast not too outlandish since I'm not quite sure how much spirit is appropriate for the position. Thanks!

Tight rolled pants and slouch socks. Two coordinating pairs of slouch socks! And LA Gears would be great....

Depends on what direction you want to go Preppy, Goth...?

For preppy -- BIG hair is a must (A+ if you can do it with a banana clip), a collared shirt (polo) remember to wear collar up with a sweater around your shoulders, peg leg pants, stirrup pants, acid washed jeans (rolled at ankles) then ankle socks with penny loafers. Too bad you didn't ask last week I could have sent you a 1980's Members Only jacket (is it sad I still have one hanging in the closet at my parents )

Maybe check out a few movie sites to look at something like "The Breakfast Club"

Boy, I'm getting old, my decade is now a theme I'll have to keep my cotton candy pink prom dress for my girls. I'm sure they'll need it by the time they're in high school.

Good luck
Erica

Hmmmn. I remember big side ponytails with lots of crimping and feathered bangs. Neon baggy shirts with the little O-ring tie thingie on the side (You can use a rubber band), and skirts over capri leggings. Slouch socks is a must. Remember the snap bracelets .

I think sneakers/tennis shoes are ok with that outfit.

And blue eyeshadow, pink lipstick, and hoop earrings. Bangles are ok too.

Must chew gum loudly with mouth hanging open.

Love it! Of course I remember the leg warmers, spandex, big hair, yes as PP suggested bangles are good, the more the merrier, LOL, layered colored socks are too.

do you have any parachute pants, maybe pair them with some penny loafers and a nice neon shirt with the side tied. Remember the banana clips? Or maybe some overalls with only one side clipped and socks over the bottom of the pants! Oops Im outing my self.. have fun!

Layered socks was the first thing that came to my mind too! I vividly remember shopping for socks with my mom and they HAD to be the EXACT same color as my International News sweatshirt. Close enough was not good enough.

Oh how freakin' fun! I love the 80's so many memories.............. well all I can suggest is anything neon. Maybe a big oversized T-shirt with neon writing on the front and black leggings to go underneath. Man Duran Duran just popped in my head......cuz I'm hungry like the wolf.......
