25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress


1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween. I know it's pretty much the most generic costume in history, but for good reason - it's just so easy and affordable. It's the perfect last-minute costume for women, because you could really use any black outfit even if you don't have a little black dress. Pair it with your black flats or heels and a…

Women's Printed Shorts {and How to Wear Them}

Dressy printed shorts are still on trend for 2014. I love the look, because it's a comfy way to be dressy casual in the hot summer months. The trend still focuses heavily on tribal and ikat prints, though florals look great too. The printed shorts for this summer tend to be high-waist like the ones last year. The only update for 2014 is that some are loose-fitted and flouncy, like the ones pictured below on the left. If you want to keep the look completely casual, go for printed denim shorts.

How to Style Printed Shorts

You'll want to pair printed shorts with a simple top; if they're black and white, go for a simple white tank, but if they have a colorful print, you can pick up on one of the colors with a solid-colored tee or tank. If they're high-waist shorts, you can pair them with a crop top or hi-low tank. When it comes to accessories, I like to pick up on the overall feel of the print. Like with the tribal prints, a boho-chic fringed bag or a beaded wrap bracelet is just the thing. With a more nautical print or the floral print shorts pictured above, I'd go with a nice woven bag. Because the printed shorts tend to be somewhat dressy, I'd go for some nicer sandals as opposed to casual flip flops.
