100 Retro Party-Ready Looks

From Madonna-esque Looks to Ravier Rainbow Platforms

— December 14, 2013 — Fashion
If you're someone who likes to keep old school but also plans on partying all night this coming New Year, then this list of retro party-ready looks is definitely for you.

Who says you absolutely have to deck yourself out in bedazzled glam when New Years is all about letting your style run loose and free? Rule the dance floor in rainbow platforms that will likely be the light of the party. Channel your inner Madonna and break out your pink, and very punk, party-ready tutu. Don't just limit yourself to the outfit when you can get complex with your cosmetics and beautify/bedazzle your brows.

Highlight the new year with these retro-party looks and celebrate the fashions of great eras past.
