Barbie on a Budget | Hot pink is one of the top colour trends of the year! If you’ve got this shade in your closet, it won’t be hard to pull off your favourite Barbie look.

All Leather Looks | Put your trendy leather pants to good use, pairing an all leather look with red lipstick to be Sandy from Grease, or slicked back hair and sunglasses sending you straight into The Matrix.

Sporty Chic | With the growing popularity of athleisure, this is the year to wear your tennis skirt to the Halloween function, or find your inner peace on the dancefloor in a full yoga set.

Coastal Grandma | Stand out in linen and sensible flats, dawning one of the most celebrated fashion trends of 2022 with your Halloween costume.

Country Girl | The all-denim Canadian tuxedo has and will always be a fashion classic. Pair this outfit with your favourite Cowboy Hat and Boots to be totally on trend.

Teenage Dream | A costume fit for your VSCO feed, take yourself back to your highschool days wearing an oversized t-shirt and scrunchies around your wrist. Complete the look with your sticker-covered Hydro Flask.

Just Add Glitter | Sparkly eye makeup, moody purple lighting and a few rhinestones is all you’ll need to transport yourself from a Hallo-weekend party to the set of Euphoria with this iconic makeup look.

Jump into the 70s | Jumpsuits and flare pants are totally back in style this year! Pull your favourite out of the closet and practise your disco moves for an unforgettable yet simple costume. 

Only 90s Kids Remember | This iconic decade for fashion is having its moment again. Only 90s kids will remember your preppy skirt and cardigan, perfectly suited to the fall season.

Y2K Craze | We all picked up butterfly barrettes and patterned mesh dresses last spring, right? If anyone asks, you’re Olivia Rodrigo for Halloween.
