Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Obsessed’ Outfit

Everyone loved the cheerleader outfit from the good 4 u video, why not switch it up and dress up in your favorite black flowy dress and add the obsessed sash? Not to mention this can be a great group costume. Have your friends dress in their favorite white dresses and wear sashes that say Miss Put Him In Therapy, Miss Thought He Was The One, or Miss First Kiss!

Chappell Roan’s Tiny Desk Outfit

Everyone’s favorite Midwest Princess! One of music’s top rising stars has many iconic looks, but our favorite was her look for her Tiny Desk Concerts! All you need is a fluffy bright pink dress with gloves, thigh-high socks, some silver heels, and of course a tiara! Don’t forget to add some trinkets to your hair and go all out with your drag makeup!

Emotions from the Inside Out Franchise

We all have our favorite characters from Inside Out! Grab a group of friends and dress up as your favorite emotions from both films! This idea is perfect for those bigger groups!

Oliver and Felix from Saltburn at the Midsummer Night’s Dream Party

Celebrate SummerWeen with one of the most popular movies of the year! Dressing up as Oliver and Felix from Saltburn is not only a great duo costume but it also works if you’re by yourself! All you really need is the antlers or the wings!
