3 Fashionable Costumes For halloween

Dressing up for Halloween can be fun, but sometimes wrapping yourself in 50 yards of gauze to be your beau’s mummy bride or painting your face green a la the Wicked Witch of the West is not ideal. So, we’ve come up with 3 fashionable Halloween Costumes that both capture the spirit of Halloween and your fashionista style.

Dressing up as a celebrity is a great way to avoid walking around as the bottom portion of, well, a horse, a dog… you get the picture.

This year we are choosing Katy Perry circa her California Dream album.

What you’ll need:
-A bright, skin tight dress with a fun print: cupcakes, the American Flag, Palm Trees, hearts, polka dots, anything fun and girly.
-A flat Iron (you need those tresses to be stick straight!)
-Extensions (you can go classic Katy with black or fun Katy with purple, blue, or green… or a combo)
-Bright accessories (think a cuff and large earrings)
-A pair of killer colored heels

We stole this one from Elle.com, but it was too good not to share! Wednesday Addams (yes from the Addams Family) is the perfect character to emulate on Halloween… Though Christina Ricci is adorable as a child, try the grown up version for a stylish, sexy look.

-Black long sleeve sweater dress (just about the knee)
