So you want a cute Halloween costume (duh), but you don’t necessarily want to go-out wearing some variation of lingerie, nor do you want to spend a lot of money on something you’re only going to wear once. Trust me, I know the struggle is real, but look no further, for here is my top 10 list of cute, (mostly) DIY, plus-size Halloween costumes.
1. Sock Hop Sweetie
Is there anything cuter than a poodle skirt? If you want to emulate Sandy in Grease, try picking up a poodle skirt from a vintage or thrift shop. Some of them may be a little on the expensive side, especially if you opt for vintage, but this is a skirt that you could wear outside of Halloween as well. If you don’t want to drop the cash, try buying or making a poodle patch and sewing it onto a black skirt that you already have. Pair it with a white collared shirt, a baby pink cardigan, and a preppy pair of oxfords. (Going as “Bad Sandy” is pretty easy, too, since all it takes is some black jeans, a leather jacket, red lipstick, and some big, blonde, curls.)
