Every year when October rolls around there’s one main question on everyone’s minds- what will I be for Halloween? There are trends every year for Halloween costumes, from popular movie characters (Jack Sparrow), to pop music icons (Lady Gaga), to classic iconic looks. But this year, leave your skimpy French maid costume at home, because Halloween 2011 is not bringing sexy back.
The movie “Mean Girls” reinforced the notion that “In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.” In my opinion, however, a young girl (or an older woman for that matter) dressed up in a Playboy Bunny costume is not cute. Ditch the overtly sexy option for a less offensive choice (one that wouldn’t make conservative parents cringe too much) while still maintaining a flattering look.
Popular costume predictions for this year include Rainbow Brite, Smurfs, “Mad Men” and “Pan Am” Characters, vampires and werewolves (this trend just won’t go away), pirates, Katy Perry, and of course Gaga.
