Forever Halloween

Tricia Lewis, our Fashion Herald blogger, is out on maternity leave. Following is a post from her co-worker Kati who is graciously filling in as guest blogger.

With the big event just two weeks away, I've got Halloween on the brain. Even more than I love dressing up, I love creating costumes from my real clothes. It may be a black vest any given day of the year, but on October 31st, it's an integral piece of a pirate costume. Today at Forever 21, I was trying to think cute fall trends for the blog, but all I could think was costumes costumes costumes.

Happening upon a seemingly normal chunky sweater, I think The Dude from The Big Lebowski. At just $32.80, all this sweater needs is shades + pj pants.

Add horns and a tail to this $39 furry Twelve by Twelve number, and you can easily pull off the role of a Wild Thing.

There was plenty more faux fur to be had at Forever 21. The furry black vest screams to be part of a bear costume or maybe even a gaudy, over-the-top Real Housewives of New Jersey get-up. The little brown vest would make the perfect warm accent to a Viking or squirrel costume.

And just in time for your constellation-themed costumes, Forever 21 has low AND high top, sequined AND not sequined gold and silver kicks for just $16.80!

Buy these for your b-boy, jellyfish or Michael Jackson costumes... and then keep them for a little flare all year long. That's the magic of a great Halloween costume - long term versatility. And at Forever 21 prices, you'll find great inspiration in and out of disguise.

And if all of this has failed to inspire you, go to the Ricky's pop-up on 34th Street, where they do the thinking for you. Choose from scores of pre-packaged costumes, so all you'll have to do come Halloween night is get dressed.
