For some, October is a month of pumpkins, horror movies and quirky accessories. For others, it’s the month of Halloween -- the much anticipated day of ‘dress-up.’ However, deciding whether to be cute or sexy, scary or not scary, can be a daunting task. How scary is too scary? Is going all-out on some latex too far? The answer is: NO! Grab that latex and paint yourself from head to toe! Halloween is the one time per year we can spray fake blood all over our clothes, coat our face in glitter and have some special effects fun. This year, instead of grabbing those trusted cat ears and smudging on your favorite eyeliner, try something new and have fun doing it!
We’ve rounded up our favorite on-screen women for a little inspiration. From Hollywood fashion to chick-flick classic, we’re exploring looks from some of our favorite movie and television icons. That’s right, we’re talking from Audrey Hepburn to Cher from “Clueless.” You can choose to keep these cute, or you can check out our tips at the end of the post if you prefer a little ‘Halloween makeup.’ No matter if you like it classic or scary, just remember to have fun and rock this year’s costume with confidence!

On paper I may not be commonly referred to as a ‘fashion expert,’ but I have a knack for fashion and a keen point-of-view, so why shouldn’t you listen to what I have to say? Especially when we are talking about my favorite topic: Jackets! No, I’m not talking about the crazy, heavy kind of jackets that keep you from freezing your butt off, I’m talking about jackets that go underneath your winter weather armor -- jackets that define your personal style and make you feel cute! Whether you’re kicking butt or just sitting on your butt you want to look stylish and here’s how...
But first, I think I need to explain my obsession regarding jackets and layering pieces. I think I can blame my needing a third piece (or layer piece) on my early years working retail. I only worked retail for a few months in college because all of my money ended up going to clothes! I made the smart decision to remove myself from temptation and get a new job outside of a clothing store. But while I worked there as a sales associate, the managers had to wear three pieces, like adding a jacket or a vest to their overall look. I’ve always believed in dressing for the job you want, not the one you currently have, so I strictly wore three pieces every shift I worked. Truthfully, I don’t know if it was that or years of watching What Not To Wear, where Clinton Kelly and Stacy London preached about certain pieces that pulled an outfit together. I think these two equally have fueled my love of layers and jackets!
