You don't have to! Check out these ten costumes for you, the lazy college girl:
1. Space Cowgirl
How cute is this one? All you need is a shimmery skirt and top, plus an adorable pink cowgirl hat and you're golden. Oh, don't forget your space gun! Get this one for 10 bucks on Amazon, and then regift it to your little cousin for Christmas.
This one is totally overdone, but make it even cuter and sleeker with a pair of red vinyl pants, like these from Forever 21. Add devil horns, which you probably have from freshman year of high school somewhere, these fun red glasses, a red crop top, and if you want to be really fancy, this red jacket for 45 bucks. Might be worth for it for this sexy costume!
3. Cher Horowitz
Another classic, but for a reason. This costume looks cute and always put-together. No one has to know you rush-shipped the outfit from Forever 21 a few days before Thursday. Try this skirt, a white crop top (if you're a college girl, you definitely have one of these), and this cardi over it. Add white boots and you're golden.
5. Bratz Doll
This is the perfect excuse to wear that hot pink skirt you've always wanted. This one from Forever 21 is cute and affordable! Add a cropped white tee like she did in the pic and add the Bratz logo, or get this cute steal from Forever 21. Add a ton of makeup and a funky hairstyle, and you'll end up looking like your favorite bad-ass dolls from the early 2000's.
6. Daphne from Scooby Doo
All you need is a purple skirt, purple top, and purple cropped blazer. These white boots are perfect to match, and find green fabric to put in your hair, and voila! Ready to solve some mysteries with the gang!
This one is probably the easiest of them all. All you really need is an oversized red, yellow, green (or white if you want to do mayo) shirt and a corresponding color party hat. Print out the logo of your condiment and you're done.
9. 90s Girls
I did this one last year and it was so easy! All you need are some funky 90s-esque clothes (we went with a grungy look), clout glasses (which you probably have from when they were super trendy last year) and scrunchies (which you definitely have)! Add some tattoo chokers and you're good to go.
