If you want to have a style that is heavily influenced by the 1960s or the 1980s, you shouldn’t look further than Tina Turner’s style. Any of her styles is guaranteed to cause a bang.
Rock legend Tina Turner is still famous for her huge sound, big hair and fabulous legs. The singer was completely fearless in her singing and fashion styles in the period that started with the 1970s and lasted through the 1980s.
So, how do you achieve this icon’s look? First of all, you need a wig. If you have a wig, then it all depends on how you utilise what you have in your hands. You can bring Tina back to life with her sensational wig and her typical 1980s look.
This iconic wig can be obtained from numerous costume stores. Nowadays it is very likely to find a realistic wig in wig shops. It is more likely to find more true-to-original wigs as the prices get higher. Maybe you possess the talent to design wigs, but it would be easier to buy one for the sake of this look. It is important to note that even though Tina had afro hair, her style was known for her use of this particular wig.
To obtain Tina Turner’s style and for the rest of the requirements, it is the easiest to stick with the 1980s. You don’t actually have to buy new things. You can find these clothes in a discount store or in a friend’s wardrobe easily. A hyper-mini skirt, maybe sequinned or leather, would do. You have to wear fishnet stockings as well. It doesn’t matter if your legs are as beautiful. There is nothing better than fishnet stockings to make them look shapely and sexy.
You will probably want to wear the highest heels you possibly can. Red heels would look good, but you don’t have to try too hard because the combination that suits you the best and one that makes you feel good would be the best-looking one.
Nowadays there aren’t many ready-to-wear costumes of Tina Turner or “Private Dancer” in stores or on the internet. This would be a reason why you might want to go to discount stores. Clothes from the 1970s and a flamboyant wig will do.
However, you might have some options. For example, you can stick with the “Proud Mary” costume. A golden coloured fringe skirt and tiger-striped top would reflect the 1970s adequately. You can opt for platform boots instead of heels for this combination. This way, you will undoubtedly become Tina.
If you are okay with spending a little more money, you can combine a golden mini dress with black fringes and a golden jacket.
There used to be sequinned Tina dresses in stores, but now you cannot find these in famous stores. However, you would be surprised by the things you can find on eBay or on similar websites. People sell their used wigs and costumes on these sites. Don’t feel uncomfortable about wearing a used wig. This is a very usual practice in rentable clothing. You can get these wigs cleaned by professional companies or place the wig on a wig cap while wearing it. This method would be easier. You can find a wig cap easily in beauty stores.
You can post a want-to-buy thread on a local website to find clothing suitable for this style. Many people have old jeans and jackets they are looking for excuses to get rid of. They would gladly help you out.
You might not possess Tina Turner’s spectacular voice, but this way, you can rock her style…
