Slash: 1989

For a certain type of rock fan, there are few greater shredders than Slash of Guns N' Roses. But you don't need to be a fan of guitar bombast to coin his equally over-the-top style as yours for a night. What you want is a luscious curly black wig – one replicating an 80s Cher perm will work well – and a black top hat. We've seen no end to the prefabricated, chain party store version of this look, but it's way better if you source the materials yourself. Be sure to pair with a rock tee (neck and sleeves cut off) and tight, but not skinny, jeans.
