It's important - to me, anyway - to not use Halloween as an excuse to dress - well - less; I am trying not to use that four letter word that starts with an S and ends with a T. Here are 3 exemplary ways to dress well this Halloween...
1. Pop Culture: Mia Wallace, of Pulp Fiction.
long-sleeved white button-down, fitted black crop pants, black flats, red manicure, red lipstick and black mascara, short black bob with bangs (or wig)
2. Vintage Pop Culture: Dorothy
sleeveless white top, light blue skirt, red flats, blush for rosy cheeks
3. Classic: Pirate
boyfriend or distressed light-wash jeans, white tee, black heels, and pearls, pearls, pearls
Besides not looking like a four letter word on Halloween, the great bonus of all 3 of these Chic Costumes is that you can wear the clothes again and again, working them into your regular wardrobe; now that's dressing well.
Be sure to check out last year's Chic Costumes, for more ideas...
