That’s it, you made up your mind…sexy mouse it is! As you make your way to the register to pay for the Halloween costume, you do a double take at the overpriced scary price tag and wonder is this some sort of trick?! That’s when the party animal in you suddenly dies and you leave Party City empty handed… It’s true; Halloween is about dressing up and going all out creating the perfect look. However, there is no need to go into debt for an overpriced costume which will probably be worn once.
Thankfully, we can combine some of the trends shown on the runways during Fashion Week with the contents of our own closets to create a one-of-a-kind fabulous costume. Saving money will make your Halloween that much happier and a true treat! Although, the best treat of all is that you may actually be able to wear this “costume” more than once!
Make an Entrance in Metallics
Christopher Blanken, Thomas Tait, and Burberry Prorsum were just a few of the many designers who showed leather and metallic looks throughout their collections. Why not be inspired by some of the world’s top designers and choose bright metallics for a bombshell Barbie costume, or vamp up your look and slip into a black leather dress to create a vampire persona or devil dominatrix. If you want to go all out even add the metallic touch’s to your makeup & nails!
Stand Out in Sequins
Shimmering sequins adorned various looks seen during Fashion Week, proving they are not only in for the holidays, but will continue to be a major trend this spring as well. Add some shimmer eye shadow when doing your makeup or sequins and bold gems to your hair to make the ultimate statement. Channel your best Taylor Swift or Dancing with the Stars Diva by going glam this Halloween!
Don’t be tricked into thinking you have to buy a costume from a specialty shop or online website to be amazing and feel fabulous this Halloween. Style your own look, save money, be an original…all while staying on trend!
