How to Dress Like Bananarama in the 1980s

Bananarama formed in the London in late 1981. Comprising three best friends Keren Woodward Sarah Dallin and Siobhan Farley, the latter whom they met at the London College of Fashion. Their success on both pop and dance charts has earned them a listing in the Guinness World Records as the all-female group with the most chart entries in the world.

Here's some ways to dress like Bananarama in the 1980s:

Early 80s Bananarama Look

For an early 80s Bananrama look, you don't need to look like you've tried too hard! Just get hold of a stripy jumper or top,  a hat and some pedal pushers or cropped jeans. Hair must be wild and messed up, make up bold.

Mid 80s Bananarama Look

For this you need to look just a little more glamourous. (The release of True Confessions marked a noticeable change of image to Bananarama) You need a cropped jacket, maybe white like Siobhan's on the cover. Think in black and white terms, so stripy tights, white skirt, and off the shoulder black tops! Lots of belts! Hair should still be big, we are talking bout the '80s after all! Make up glamourous so not too over the top!

Late 80s Bananarama Look

This should be farly similar to the mid 80s look, just slightly more daring. Think tight stone washed jeans with off the shoulder tops. Lots of jewelery and a cropped jacket. Similar hair/make up to before!
