A well-tailored suit, or a nice white dress shirt (puffy sleeves are an option) with a double-breasted vest topped off with a Fedora. If you opt for the suit, make sure you wear a thin tie. It doesn't necessarily have to be leather. Eyeliner and a bit of lipstick is a nice touch. (Just a few things from the Ultravox/John Foxx book of fashion. Now those were guys with fashion sense!) :)

Or you could model yourself after the following eighties icons:

Martin Gore (from Depeche Mode)
Crockett and Tubbs (Miami Vice)
Boy George
Adam Ant
Mike Score (from A Flock Of Seagulls)
Nick Rhodes or John Taylor (from Duran Duran)

Depending on the look you choose, you might want to consider having some industrial strength hairspray on hand!! Hope this all helps! ;)
