QUICK & EASY HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

This futuristic cowgirl look has been super popular in 2023. Plus, it’s really easy to throw together.

3. TINKERBELL

Tinkerbell from Peter Pan is always a lovable costume for Halloween. For college girls, you should make your Tinkerbell sleek and stylish with individual pieces (rather than just buying a full costume from Disney World). A green satin slip dress is the perfect piece to start with.

I’m obsessed with the music festival aesthetic, especially following the summer season. Dress up as a festival girl with anything that screams desert vibes. Personally, I love the two-piece fringe sets and retro sunglasses.
