It's officially October. What better way to kick off the month than with a post about preppy costumes!?!
I've gotten tons of questions about preppy Halloween costumes on tumblr!
So I decided to make a CP post about it!
I am so not-a-fan of trashy costumes. And I hate the excuse "college is the time to get dressing trashy out of the way." Um. Never.
Okay, here are some examples,
Little V as Eloise, Helen as an equestrian girl, and I was a sailor.
Little V's costume was a bunch of kids clothes. I'm pretty sure her shirt is a size 4t. My dress is from ModCloth.
Freshman Year, I was a ballerina! Someone from my floor dressed like me.... thanks?
I used my OLD ballet bag for the night! haha... Also it was cold, so I wore a Northface fleece.
Haha... JUST KIDDING. This was a themed party.
I'm not a huge fan of Audrey Hepburn posters... but it'd be a super easy costume! This picture is from my high school graduation, but the black dress would be perf for a Audrey costume.
I think the trick is to not buy a costume from a bag. ( Ew.) Sporty Sister and her friends had a princess tea party and all dressed up like Disney princesses. But they used clothes they all already had! Unique and fun!!!
Here's a costume I wore for a Rick's Cafe (soph year)... GoGo dancers!
(this could potentially cross over into the trashy side depending on how you wear it... So be careful!)
Other easy costumes:
Nerd, cowgirl, Nancy Drew (penny loafers anyone?)..... Any other ideas?
