Don’t fear! The Tanger Style Maker is here! Yes, I know it’s Halloween but I also know a number of people are still scurrying around looking for the perfect costume for tonight. I’ve spent the week sharing ideas of looks that can be pieced together with items either already hanging in your closet or waiting to be purchased at your nearest Tanger Outlets. They are simple, quick and fashionable of course! Check ‘em out!
Look No. 1 – Mary Poppins
Mary Poppins must be an Ann Taylor Factory Store A-lister. To pull of this look, all you’ll need is a black, knee-length circle skirt and a white or cream long-sleeved blouse. Throw on a pair of black tights, your favorite high-heeled boots or booties and you’ve got your base. Accent with a red belt (and a bowtie if you have one lying around), white gloves, a black top hat and that trusty old black umbrella for a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious costume! Oh and don’t forget the spoon full of sugar!
Look No. 2 – Scarecrow
This is one of my favorites! I bought a great pair of overalls this year that I’ve dressed up and down all season long. Who knew my fun denim staple could double as a Halloween costume? All you’ll need to pull of this look are of course the denim overalls (I found mine at the Gap Outlet), a plaid or striped shirt and a straw hat (I’m using my beach hat). To accent the look and take it to the next level, tie a roped belt around your waist, toss a few fall leaves and straw in your pockets, paint on your most frightening scarecrow face and TA DA – You have a stylish scarecrow, good for adults or kiddos alike!
Look No. 3 – Lumberjack
I’m not sure about your beau, but those I know aren’t too fond of dressing up for this spook-tacular holiday. I found the perfect solution – A lumberjack! It’s fun and stylish, but still manly. All he’ll need is a plaid flannel shirt and his favorite pair of jeans. I found both at American Eagle Outfitters. I would add a pair of suspenders if he’s up for it and a beanie to top it off! If he’s willing to plan ahead of time, have him grow out his beard for the Halloween festivities. It’ll be a hit!
Look No. 4 – Olivia Pope
Scandal fans – This one is for you! Pair a classic white or cream trench with a pair of tailored slacks to mimic the fashionable Olivia Pope. If you don’t already have them, either of these pieces could be found at Calvin Klein. If you’re really wanting to channel the ABC diva, sip on an extra-large glass of vino throughout the night. It’s an accessory, I promise… Only for Olivia Pope!
So there you have it – Four awesome looks that you can throw together in no time! Let me know what you plan to dress up as tonight in the comments section below. Happy Halloween and Happy Shopping!
