Halloween: Glam Grunge Lookbook
This Halloween, skip the overpriced, wear-and-toss costumes.
No one wants to spend $50+ on a Halloween costume only to wear it once. This year, we've put together a series of looks made of our favorite pieces that are totally re-wearable. Bold and unexpected makeup finishes off the looks, and don't miss the glitter tutorial at the bottom.
This queen bee certainly doesn't hold back. Our mock matching set - a little tie front top and body-hugging flare pants - is perfect for showing off a little skin. This crazy soft faux leopard coat is the perfect statement piece to attract all the attention while keeping you warm. Those nostalgic early 2000's trends are totally back, so we added some platform slides, a clear mini bag, and classic hoop earrings. Bold eye shadow and rhinestones finish off the look.
Shina Tied Up Top, $16 // Dancing Queen Flared Pants, $16 // Ultimate Faux Leopard Coat, $34 // Spice Girl Platform Slides, $26 // It's All Clear Bag, $32 // Inner Circle Hoop Earrings, $9 // Starlight Necklace And Earrings Set, $8 // Loop Around Chain Necklace, $5.99
For this pastel 90's inspired look, we picked a playful pink corduroy dress and layered it up over a white long sleeve and a rainbow lettuce edge tee. She loves to express her feminity through her clothes, so skirts and dresses are perfect. For that girly-but-edgy look, we picked bold white combat boots for contrast. The mini backpack is a practical and adorable essential, and you can't forget the neon eye makeup.
This bold, pleather-wearing girl has a look that says "I look hot and don't care if you don't like it." Accessories like strappy body harnesses are her vibe, so we layered a sexy corset belt over a little graphic tee. The faux leather skirt gives off a biker/ rocker vibe, especially paired with a choker necklace, red lip and cat-eye sunglasses. Don't have short hair? Just make a little bun with your ends, tuck and pin it up underneath at the nape of your neck to create the illusion.
Victoria Faux Leather Skirt, $14 // Sweet Honey Tee, $13 // On The Go Corset Belt, $11 // Half Frame Cat Eye Sunglasses, $8 // Nice Ring To It Mini Backpack, $49 // Walk The Line Boots, $39 // Minimal Cross Earrings, $7
This look is not for your average tomboy. She opts for casual, grunge looks but contrasts it with glitter eye makeup when getting dressed up. We went with an oversized flannel, cropped tank and bike shorts for a look that's laidback and a little androgynous. Drippy, tear-like glitter eye makeup gives it an emotional but glam edge. Messy hair, a backpack, and sneakers finish off the look.
