* Blue sweatshirt

* Bright colored longsleeve t-shirt to wear under sweatshirt

##Dressing up as Punky Brewster##

Step 1: The first thing you’ll want to do is layer your clothing. Wear a bright colored long-sleeved t-shirt underneath a bright blue sweatshirt. Push up the sleeves of your sweatshirt and roll the long-sleeved t-shirt over it so that there is a contrasting cuff.

Step 2: Put on a white t-shirt over your two shirts and roll up the sleeves on the white shirt so that a much shorter layer exists.

Step 3: Put on your denim vest over the shirt. You can wear a plain blue denim one or opt for a brightly colored vest. Decorate it with all sorts of pins and patches, 80s style!

Step 4: Put on a pair of jeans and layer over them a pair of bright socks and striped legwarmers.

Step 5: Put on a pair of colorful Converse sneakers — or any other brilliantly hued shoe with mis-matched laces.

Step 6: The final touch is to pull your hair into two side ponytails to get this look! Grab a stuffed toy dog to pose as Brandon, Punky’s beloved pet Golden Retriever!
