Inspiring Women To Dress Up As This Halloween

Halloween is the perfect opportunity to dress up as your true self. Here are some ideas to honor the important women in history while staying warm this October 31st.

Rosie the Riveter

This costume is a classic last-minute Halloween look because it’s super easy and super cute. All you need is a denim long sleeve shirt, a red bandana, and a bold lip. But the best part? If you don’t already own one or more of these items, you can wear them again on any non-spooky day.

Shirt: Men’s Long Sleeve Denim Shirt:

$16, Walmart

Bandana: Paisley Bandana in red:

$2.50, Michael’s

Lipstick: NYX Liquid Suede lipstick in shade “Kitten Heels”:

$5.39, Target



(Or, for the pun-inclined, Bee-yoncé)

 Beyoncé is a feminist (and fashion) icon, and the best part about this costume is that there are so many Beyonce’s to dress up as.

There’s Mother Earth Beyoncè:

Veil: Blue radiance Glitter Tulle Fabric, $3.00,

Flower Crown: Claire’s, $7.00—pink-219967.html?cgid=3023#cgid=3023&start=12

Baby Dolls: Walmart, $13

Lemonade Beyoncé:

Fluffiest Yellow Dress You Can Find: Asos, $35

Baseball Bat*: Dicks Sporting Goods, $15.00

(*Please do not smash any cars or fire hydrants)


Or, for a cheaper and less literal interpretation, write “Yoncé” on a yellow and black striped t-shirt and throw on a pair of bumble bee wings.

Wings and Antennae: Amazon, $6 Set/dp/B0041TB4YM?keywords=bumble+bee+wings&qid=1538155434&sr=8-23&ref=sr_1_23

Frida Kahlo

Channel your Dia De Los Muertos energy into this flower-filled Frida costume. With some chunky gold jewelry, an orange lip, and some floral hair pins, you’ll be a dead ringer for one of the most iconic painters of the early-mid 1900’s.

Flower clips: Claire’s, $6.50

Lipstick: Colourpop lippy stix in “I Ain’t Bad Atcha” Colourpop, $5.50
