It was a time when fashion embraced the loud, the proud, and the utterly shiny. Enter the shell suit, a sartorial icon of the late 1980s and early 90s that embodied the era’s bold spirit and questionable taste in equal measure.

Made from a crinkly, nylon material that shimmered like a disco ball after a rain shower, the shell suit wasn’t just clothing; it was a statement. From dodgy rappers to scousers with bubble perms, it graced the backs of just about everyone for a few short years.

The undeniable eye-catching factor helped to make the shell suit a cultural phenomenon, and the mere mention of one can conjure up a wave of nostalgia (and maybe a touch of bemusement).

For fancy dress purposes, there are oodles of costumes available for men and women, that will enable you to recapture a moment in time that many would rather forget!
