black "leatherette" jacket: Bomber-style jacket, baggy sleeves, rolled cuffs.   
  • They come in varying textures, some are pretty dimpled up, others are smoother.  
  • There is also a black lined version of the jacket.

skirt: velcro closure in the back, made of shiny black threads.  Has two slits in the front.
  • One of the rare black Jem clothing items!

bandeau top: fitted gold lamé, velcros in back.

belt: Copper with a square dimpled silver vinyl "buckle"
  • The copper foil is backed with material, it's quite stiff and stays in place well. 
  • One may notice tiny puncture marks along the length of the belt, which is the result of it being sewn to the card.
  • Silver on the buckle is prone to peeling.

tights: Yellow matte stretch tights, elasticized waist.
  • There are a few Jem outfits that came with yellow tights.  See a photo of them together, and/or check the tights guide for more information.

sandals: Yellow sandals.
  • This style of shoe is very similar to those of a few other fashions.  See a photo of them together, and/or check the shoe guide for more information.

Packaging Variants: A listing of the packaging that Just Misbehavin' can be found in, that I know of, so far!
*I don't own all of these fashions NRFB so I can't say which, if any posters and inserts originally came with it.  Bold listings are those I have used to create this ID page.  Anything in Italics I haven't actually seen but have good reason to believe exists.  If you have any photos or information/corrections to share, I'd love to hear about it!

Other images of Just Misbehavin' (generally unproduced/prototypes/promotional figures) Differences from produced fashion (if any)
The photo used in both the first year Jem catalogue poster and the 1986 Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue shows the outfit with straight sided pumps in lieu of sandals; the belt is shown to be yellow (looks like a ribbon).  The skirt may be satin, it's difficult to tell.
1986 German Leaflet,  (same photo appears in an issue of Topolino, and again in the 1986 Belgium catalogue)the skirt definitely appears to be a satiny material.  The belt is still yellow, there are no tights and the shoes are yellow straight cut pumps, not sandals.
The same photo is used for the 1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue, the 1987 France/UK Toy Fair Catalogue, the Second Year Jem Catalogue Poster and the Second Year package artlooks very much like the produced outfit
