1. Pretty in Pink
Instead of the usual big ball gown dress and sky-high heels, transforming into a lovely princess is now made easy brought to you by your closet! A simple skater skirt and a nice sparkly top or a cocktail dress paired with some cute flats/sandals will make you look like one of the princesses in Disneyland!
2. Do You Like Me Meow?
We're all familiar with the sexy cat costume, but let's face it: spandex is hard to pull off [and hard to wear!]. As an alternative, black skinny jeans and a leopard/cheetah-print top will still make you look as fierce as Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises. If you don't have any feline-print clothes, wearing all black topped with DIY cat ears (black felt paper taped to a headband) will still look very cute! Finish the whole outfit with black boots or flats, and you're good to go!
3. The Kids Are Alright
(little kid costume)
Going as a little kid for Halloween ain't a bad thing too. Go out and ask for all the candies you can eat in a vintage graphic tee and a pair of overalls. If you don't have overalls, denim shorts can work too! Just don't forget to use some kiddie sneakers and an adorable headband and you're good to go!
4. Too School for Cool
Usually, girls tend to over-do this costume with an exaggerated version of the Japanese schoolgirl uniform; but hey, why not spice it up a little? Instead of going with the usual super short pleated blue skirt with the white button-down shirt, go for cute plaid skirts and an adorable sweater. Accessorize it with a pair of brogues, a satchel, and some cute ribbons and you just sweetened up the infamous school girl outfit.
5. Country Strong
Last but definitely not the least, the cowgirl. I don't know about you, but where we're from, it's hot all year round. Jeans with a long-sleeved plaid top and vest paired with some cowboy boots is not an ideal costume when you know it's gonna be 86 degrees out there. So we're gonna give you an alternative! High waited shorts with a plaid top and cowboy boots may just be the answer to all the weather worries. A cute cowgirl bag can be your new candy bag too!
That's just few of the things you can do to sweeten up the typical Halloween costumes and now you won't get lost! We're just getting started so watch out for more!
