Costume Ideas for Halloween

Halloween is fast approaching - do you know what you want to dress up as? Here are a few costume ideas from some of the most popular chick-flicks out there!

1. The "Ex-Wife" from Mean Girls

"In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it." Though Cady Harris didn't get the memo, this infamous costume is perfect if you're planning to scare your friends this year!

2. Elle Woods from Legally Blonde
This cute film taught us not to judge a book by its cover and that it's possible to achieve your goals if you work hard enough. If you love pink, you will love this costume. Oh, and go for a stuffed animal if you don't want PETA after you!

3. Cher from Clueless

Everyone's favourite clueless girl had the best outfits (not to mention, every girl's dream closet) and was an expert in matching. If you're feeling like being fashionable this year, this is the costume for you!

4. Scarlett O'Hara from Gone with the Wind

If you feel like being dramatic this year, who would be better to dress up as other than Miss Scarlett O'Hara herself? This stubborn and lively character flaunted in the most beautiful dresses (there were plenty of them in this four hour long film!) and never failed to impress the audience. Don't forget your sunhat!

5. Amelie from Amelie

Who didn't fall in love with the cute French girl searching for love? Amelie is perfect for a last-minute costume - try to look conservative with a cardigan and a long skirt. You can either buy a wig at your local Halloween store or be bold enough to get a pixie cut yourself!

Midterm Chic

'Tis the season of midterms, and the last thing on your mind is making sure you look presentable while you cram before your exams. But when you look up from your desk and see a cute guy pass you by, you can't help but kick yourself a little for not making more of an effort to look nice. There is no need for more stress at a time like this, because it is possible to look comfortable and cute at the library. Here are some tips on how to hit the books in style:

1. Be simple and chic.
It's easier to create an outfit with a dress, since all of the work is basically done for you. Match them up with cute flats and a cardigan to keep warm in the chilly library.
Here's an example of a dress from H&M that can be worn with tights:

2. Keep basic wardrobe items at hand.
It's important to always have jeans and a comfortable T-shirt to throw together last minute. Wear an over-sized cardigan and Toms with it and you're ready to go!
Boyfriend jeans are always cute and give you room to move. Check out these ones from Topshop:

3. Find an alternative to sweatpants.
Harem pants work great with a sweatshirt and long T-shirt. You can match them with a pair of bold-coloured Keds to add some colour to your look.
Here is a pair of harem pants from Ralph Lauren:

4. Look comfy but not lazy.
It's not flattering to look like you just rolled out of bed, so aim to appear cozy without looking sloppy. Wear shorts and a button-up shirt with a pair of your favourite Converse for maximum comfort. 
Here's a cute plaid flannel shirt from Forever 21:

Clothing Items to Avoid
Try to steer away from sweatpants, pajama bottoms and slippers. I understand it's important to make your study area feel like home and as comfortable as possible, but there is a reason why we stay hidden in our house when we dress like that!
