Sandy from Grease

All you need is tight black pants, preferably leather, and a tight black top. Did I say tight? That is the key word of this costume, so show off those curves. Curl those locks and add some bright red lipstick and “You’re the one that I want.”

Snapchat Filters

From the past years, we have seen a bunch of emojis like the dancing girls or even the three monkeys. This year why not change it up with those snapchat filters that we all love sharing, like the licking dog or the flower hippie crown. Just make a cutout of whatever your favorite filter and you are set to go.

Beyoncé from Lemonade

Probably one of the most memorable pop culture moments of the year, Beyoncé smashing cars in that bright yellow dress holding a bat. Throw on a yellow dress and get yourself a bat, and I am sure you will make any ex shake in his boots when he sees you coming.

Chanel Robots

This is for all you fashion forward girls. The last Chanel fashion show was all about the future and computer technology. If you got a tweed outfit in your closet, just buy yourself a robot head and voila! Not only are you on the cutting edge of the fashion scene, you would make Uncle Karl proud.

Cara Delevigne

Skinny jeans, oversized t-shirt, beanie, and bomber jacket, I mean basically the model uniform, but we all know Cara Delevigne’s specific look. Kate Moss really got it down, so take note from her and imitate the model turned actress.

Moschino Paper Doll

Paper Dolls have been spotted on the Halloween scene, but Moschino’s fashion show this September reiterated how this look is still part of our pop culture. Grab some cardboard, draw an outfit and make sure to leave those folding tabs.

Orange is the New Black Inmate

The best thing about the cast of Orange is the New Black, is that they really cover each race. So all you really need is a tan or orange v-neck top and matching pants, and just throw on some work boots and you are an inmate of Litchfield.

“Who has ever felt personally victimized by Regina George?” Inspired by our favorite mean girl, this costume is super easy and the statement will immediately be heard. Layer a white tank top over a purple bra and cut two holes over the breasts.
