4 Easy Ways to Dress As Your Favourite Characters for Halloween
We all love the 31st of October. Halloween night! It’s the only night in which our creativity comes in full force, surging our minds with endless ideas on what to wear for Halloween. Although trick or treating isn’t an option for us, it doesn’t mean we’ll be staying home and binge watching horror movies on the spookiest night of the year. Dressing up is always a must, what with all the endless parties and events with costume themes going on. Although we do applaud the effort some people put into their costumes like renting or even buying specific clothes that will only see the light of day once a year, you don’t necessarily need to do that! Here at Shoppr, we are great advocates of reusing your clothes and styling it differently to create multiple looks, giving the word versatile a whole new meaning. For this year’s Halloween (and many more to come, we hope!), try shopping for versatile pieces that are significant enough to be part of your costume but also able to be worn on a daily basis, killing two birds with one stone!

2016 saw a multitude of Netflix shows that left us with many sleepless nights and Stranger Things was definitely one of it! We totally love the throwback to the 80’s theme of the show, fanny packs, ringer t-shirts and Chuck Taylors! Our favourite character was definitely Eleven. Though you don’t need to have mind bending powers and a bloody nose, a blue bomber jacket and pink dress can definitely suffice. We love the blend of boyish and girly clothes of Eleven, the perfect embodiment of all pre-teen girls in us growing up.
The Plastics From Mean Girls
Gather a few of your best girlfriends and prepare to look totally fetch this Halloween. We’d like to collectively agree that Mean Girls is a movie we can watch multiple times, recite every hilarious line and still not get bored of it. It’s totally easy to recreate the wardrobe of Regina George and her sidekicks, you might even have some of the quintessential items needed buried in your wardrobe. The things you need include: a mini skirt, sassy high school queen attitude and most importantly some pink, because on Wednesdays, we wear pink!

If you’ve always wanted to channel your inner Goth girl but don’t want to come off as too intimidating, Halloween is the perfect time to try it out. Get your hair into a double braid and put on your grimmest face, because Wednesday Addams is here for Halloween! Lucky for you, childish giggles and hopping around wouldn’t be necessary due to Wednesday’s deadpan demeanour. All you need is the hair, a collared black dress and an eternally soulless facial expression to nail this look.
Cher Horowitz from Clueless
With the revival of the 90’s trend, nothing is more perfect for a throwback style icon than Cher Horowitz from Clueless. Just the scene of her picking out her outfit from a virtual closet has got us gushing with envy. If you’ve watched Iggy Azalea and Charlie XCX’s music video for their hit song “Fancy”, you’ve probably noticed how they paid homage to the iconic movie. However, you certainly don’t need a team of stylists to curate the perfect outfit for channelling your inner Cher Horowitz. All you need is a plaid skirt, thigh high socks and a fitted sweater to look like the preppy princess herself. Extra points too if you happen to have a furry top pen lying around.Shop checkered skirts >
