I will not lie and tell you that I didn’t pull the “I’m a bunny!” line a few unforgettable Halloweens ago, but it certainly wasn’t my classiest or most creative moment. Being in art school has taught me that there are actually many great ways to dress for this holiday without being mainstream, un-classy or overly silly. I can laugh at some party bunnies, I can enjoy judging mini-skirts, and I truly love overly silly costumes, but I am not the kind of person who can pull off a pumpkin suit. For this reason, and also because of the fact that I never get around to planning my costume, I decided to give myself (and you, of course) some classy yet fabulous costume inspiration:

1. Go Vintage
There is nothing more chic than vintage. If you live in Brooklyn, you might just look like you’re going to class, but if you’re from anywhere else, it’s a fun and very fashionable choice! You’ll look different but not out of place, so if you’re a bit shy about dressing up –like me– it’s basically perfect. My inspiration for this idea came from a series of polaroids I saw the other day of my mom in her teens; she looked gorgeous and so stylish! No wonder vintage is coming back!
