Hey Fashionistas! We know Sandy has got ya down. Those of us in her reach probably have a serious case of cabin fever and we’re ready to get out. It may be too wet and dangerous (depending on your location) but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress up. Here are three Halloween-themed blog posts by the Trend Hungry team.
In need of a quick costume? “Gangnam Style” is easy, fun, and very topical. Bonus: that blazer is on trend and will get more wear than just on Halloween! Or try this DIY on for size and become “Call Me Maybe”. These two music-inspired costumes are perfect for a last-minute look for Halloween!
Not ready to go all out? Celebs are going skeletal and these looks were not photographed today. These bone-showing looks are celebrity street style.
Here in Philly, we are on lockdown. Thankfully, we won’t be getting hit too hard. So what’s a girl to do while stuck inside? Well besides drink wine, play board games, and fight with your roomie, there are a ton things for you to do with your time inside. Here are 10 ideas team Trend Hungry recommends!
1. Purge old clothes. You’ve been meaning to cut down your supply of LBDs from Forever 21. Some of those were def only appropriate for dorm parties, not office ones. If your goods are in good condition, sell on Threadflip.
2. DIY your digits. Those nails can use a cool coat of polish. Maybe today’s the day to try polka dots or a half moon manicure (tutorial here).
Are you the Grinch of Halloween and hate the glitz and bedazzlement of tedious costumes? Yes? Today is your lucky day because I have the perfect solution for you! The video for Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe” is extremely ordinary until a hilarious twist is revealed within the last few seconds. (If you’ve never seen the video before, it’s a must-see!)
Twist things up a little bit and become your own rendition of “Call Me Maybe”! You’re probably asking yourself how this is even possible…but trust me, it’s a lot simpler than it seems.
This quick look includes two easy steps:
An avid reader of blogs, lots of fashionistas are posing in hats for blog posts. It’s got me on a hunt for the perfect knitted hat. I’m looking for one that will last me a number of years and go with a ton – a hat that can be worn with skinny jeans, cutoff shorts, or even a city-chic coat. Shopbop has quite a selection and I’m torn between quite a few of their knitted hats. Not sure about this trend? Here are five reasons that may sway you… well, six, if we’re talking about the hats pictured.
Bop Basics Thick-Knit Baret $58.00 // Cheap Monday Emily Hat $62.00 // Bop Basics Thick Knit Slouchy Hat $58.00 // FireCity Knit Hat $58.00 // Marc By Marc Jacobs Sweater Beanie $68.00 // Club Monaco Faye Hat $49.50
1. They keep your head toasty. Function and fashion go together nicely.
Incase you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of months, Korean pop is slowly but surely taking over the American airwaves. Next year, you won’t be able to talk about 2012 without mentioning binders full of women, Honey Boo Boo, or Gangnam Style! Every lady’s Halloween costume needs the right combination of sex appeal, sophistication, and creativity. And Psy’s style encompasses all of these major necessities. Which brings me to my next point: be the topic of conversation at any and every Halloween party. Try on this trendsetter costume and be the king of K POP- Psy.
Try a blue blazer for the classic Psy look. Or stand out from the crown and roll with a pink blazer. The items in this outfit are distinct, classy, and will definitely give you more wear after the Halloween season. The key elements in making this costume stellar are the glasses, the bow tie, and the blazer.
With Halloween just around the corner, celebs are getting their street style into the spirit. It’s getting spooky out and celebrity style is going skeletal.
The list of celebrities rocking the skeletal trend is basically a who’s who list. Rapper Meek Mill recently partied it up in NYC wearing an Alexander McQueen skull tee, while the Biebs has been seen with a skeletal face mask that covers his mouth. Miley Cyrus donned a skull romper right before her big hair cut. Vanessa Hudgens & Emma Roberts opted for bones on their shirts, while Nicole Richie accessorized skulls into her ensemble.
As you can see, this spooky style can get more use than just on Halloween. Even Cher Lloyd wears the trend on her sleeve with a skull tattoo. You don’t have to take it to that level to rock the trend.
With her ever-present frown and oversized head pieces, Suri Cruise is shaping up to be our very own real-life Blair Waldorf; and we couldn’t be more excited. Looking to take advice from a seven year old may seem a little out there, but when you have the best fashion at your fingertips, glamour begins at a very young age. OK, we can definitely count out shopping at baby gap and please stay away from kitten heels. Although those age appropriate categories fit Suri, let’s point out some of her more mature fashion selections.
1. There is no excuse for boring fingernails, ever. Suri rocks this adorable mani on one of her more casual days.
