Rosie the Riveter

Rosie the Riveter Rosie the Riveter is basically the feminist flag, so why wouldn't you love her? Plus, this cute halloween costume can be easily recreated, probably using items already in your closet!


Katy Perry

Katy Perry Katy Perry is an absolute queen! Any one of her looks would be fun to recreate, but among my favorites is this one from her Roar music video. If one of her songs comes on at a party though, you better be prepared to perform!


Audrey Hepburn with a Twist

Audrey Hepburn with a Twist Who doesn't love Audrey Hepburn? She's a classic beauty icon, but sometimes her looks are too classic, i.e. not hot enough for college ragers. So revamp the look by chopping off a bit of fabric, but maintaining that old Hollywood charm.


Baywatch Character

Nightmare before Christmas

Nightmare before Christmas This look is a Halloween classic! Depending on how much time you want to dedicate to your costume, this could be a great one to try out.



Tiger Girls often try to get away with drawing some whiskers on their cheeks, throwing on a pair of ears, and claiming that they're a cat. But you're better than that, right? Show your friends that you're no kitten—you're a full-on tiger!



Sailor You can find a sailor costume basically anywhere around Halloween. You can also make your own, it's all up to you, but either way you'll look cute!


Mean Girls

Mean Girls I would have so much respect for anyone who showed up to a party dressed as Regina George from Mean Girls!


Creepy Alice in Wonderland

Creepy Alice in Wonderland Halloween is all about being creepy, right? So why not put a dark twist on a classic tale and scare all of your friends!


Flight Crew

The flight crew costume is a popular choice for college students looking for a cute and sexy Halloween costume. It typically consists of a fitted navy blue or black dress with gold buttons and accents, paired with a matching pilot's hat and aviator sunglasses. This costume is not only stylish and flattering, but it also allows for fun group costume options with friends. Plus, it's a great excuse to wear comfortable and practical shoes for a night of dancing and partying. So whether you're flying solo or with a group, the flight crew costume is a perfect choice for any college student looking to make a statement this Halloween.


Mario and Luigi

Mario and Luigi A great best friend costume is the Mario and Luigi look. It's so easy to recreate and is always a great hit.



1950's This look is so sweet and adorable! And, if you ask me, doing the hair an makeup will be just as much fun as the party itself.

There are as many costumes as ideas you can think of, so hit up a thrift store or costume shop, or simply dig through your closet for something you can wear. Which look would you like to recreate?
