3. Cowgirl/Daisy Duke

The cowgirl costume is a student favourite purely because of its easily sourced pieces. All that’s needed is 3 wardrobe staples, some short shorts, a tartan shirt and trainers. Add a cowboy hat and some boots to take this outfit to the next level. As these items should already be in every student’s wardrobe, or could be borrowed from a friend, the costs of this outfit are little to none.

4. Sandy from Grease

Just like the cowgirl costume, the iconic “Bad Sandy” look also features wardrobe staples and is easier to achieve than it seems. Just grab a pair of disco pants or Joni jeans (a pair of jeans EVERY girl should possess) and a black bardot top with heels. So simple it hurts. Half an hour with the curlers and a full face of makeup should give this look some umph to take you to ultimate vixen status.

5. Robber

This costume is perfect for the lazy costume coordinator forced to go to a party against their will, but isn’t badass enough to commit the cardinal sin of going costume less. Black jeans, black trainers and a stripy jumper are all that’s required for a positively arresting costume. To go the extra mile, eye covers or balaclavas make this costume 10x scarier.
P.S. slap on some white face paint and heavy black eye makeup for that French mime look.

6. School Girl/Chic Geek

The classic schoolgirl look is probably the most obvious outfit for students because all it requires is recycling an old secondary school uniform and a pair of Primark faux glasses. We know you still have your shirt from the fresher’s school disco. Costing little to no money means more time can be dedicated to zombie-fying this look to make it more Halloweeny and less underage child.

7. Flapper

Flappers, the 1920’s rebels were infamous for flouting social norms by cutting their hair short, smoking, drinking and just being complete badasses. Their style was simple, an outlandish cocktail dress, feather headdress, lots of beads and killer heels. Styled with a faux cigarette slung casually on the lip for extra bad gal vibes. This costume is one for the brave but only really requires an OTT cocktail dress from the back of your wardrobe and a shed load of beads.

9. Zombie Makeup

This is another look for those who don’t want to buy an outfit, but really want to bring the scare to Halloween. This look can be however you want it to be. As the focus is on the face your outfit is therefore rendered irrelevant or could tie in with a theme, the possibilities are endless.
