Halloween is not just for the kiddies, ladies- classy co-eds can play too! I don’t know about you, but paying $50 or more for flimsy costumes is never something I look forward too. So why buy cheap when you can make it yourself?
The vibrant feathers of a peacock are beautiful all on their own and would look even better on a dress! You can easily go to a craft store and buy peacock feathers to decorate a dress from Forever 21 or even a skirt and top (a cute ensemble would be a bustier top with a pleated skirt)! You can sew the feathers on and even glue them onto a headband. Accessories are your friend! Take advantage of the feather earrings trend and let your true colors show this Halloween.
A fairy costume can be super glam or feminine or funky and feisty! All you really need to buy are wings and you can throw together an outfit. Are you interested in the Tinkerbell look? Find a light green dress and some sparkly white flats. What about a dark fairy? Try high-waisted, destroyed jean shorts, a tank and maybe a leather jacket. You can also accessorize with studs, spikes and smokey eyes!
Think pink. One of the greatest things about this stylish icon is that she not only has a wide variety of careers, but of clothing as well! Be classic Barbie with pink lips and pin straight hair or even take the vintage route and try a pin-up look with voluminous hair and flushed cheeks.
4. Greek Goddess
Look heavenly in a white toga (which can even be made from bed sheets!) or a flowy white dress. This look is elegant yet festive! Go all out with gold accessories and leaf-patterned headbands. This costume would be even more delightful with some Greek God eye candy.
5. Foreign Exchange Student
Wouldn’t it be fab to pretend to be a Parisian for a night? Class your costume up with a beret, rock red lipstick and shoot for stripes.
6. Super Hero
Who’s gonna save the world? Most likely you! Just like the fairy costume, this look can be sweet or spunky. Try super hero-esque colors like red, blue and yellow for Wonder Woman, red and blue for Spiderman or even black and yellow like Batman.
7. Varsity Stud
Deck yourself out in your old school colors and it’s as if you’ve had a flashback to high school. You can use props and accessories such as a football, pins, letter man jacket, pom-poms, Converse sneakers and war paint.
