OK, I just got this idea from reading another thread earlier. How about the leggins with a mini look, a sweater or sweatshirt (with the neck cut out a la flashdance) some ballet type flats, and if your hair is long enuff, a ponytail on top (but off to one side) BIG hoop earrings and some chunky bracelets.... Good luck!

That's a great idea

You could also try watching Madonna and Cyndi Lauper music videos. Their style is pretty funky and fun. The bangles, the bracelets, the big hair do or you could even try shoulder pads (if you're REALLY up to it!). Try bright colors and "loud" prints, but make sure the colors/patterns complement each other. Either that or just go wild!

You could also go for a Michael Jackson inspired outfit. White gloves, red leather jacket... or Prince!! Endless possibilities!!!

Hhahaha I know........ buy a purse to go around the waist... then some suspenders to go with the trousers. Don't forget a cap turned around and big fisherman boots.
