Your Halloween Fashion Guidebook

Looking for Halloween costumes for you and your partner or BFF this year? We all know we’re gonna see a ton of Joker & Harlequin costumes this year and we’re sure you don’t wanna look just like everyone else. The only way you can make sure that you don’t turn up in the exact same outfit as someone else is to make your own costume!

Keep scrolling for some serious Halloween outfit inspiration that are stunning and thankfully, so simple to DIY!

We love Mad Max for its strong feminist message and of course, the amaaaazing costumes in the movie. To recreate the badass, biker meets tribal warrior looks, you will need a little makeup and a great imagination.

Dig out any old clothes from your wardrobe that you don’t wear anymore (preferably in neutral colors like cream, brown, black and grey), rip them up in strategic spots and layer on leather and metal accessories. Bonus points if you can be bothered to use a little makeup or paint to stain your outfit to make it look like you’ve really been down and dirty. Finish off your looks with messy hair and combat boots.

Here are some tips on how to distress and stain your unwanted apparel to make it look super legit.

Bonnie & Clyde

Hands down one of the most stylish outlawed couples in history, Bonnie & Clyde are the perfect inspiration for any couple looking for last minute costume ideas. You can create any of their iconic looks by mixing and matching items from your own closets! Bonnie, don’t forget the silk scarf and beret, and for Clyde, all you need is a sharp suit and a fedora. If you can score toy guns to complete your outfits, that would be the cherry on top!

The Great Gatsby

Relive the roaring 20’s and all that jazz by channeling F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beautiful debutante Daisy Buchanan and the mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby.

This is an incredibly chic costume option for a big group of girls too. Imagine all that glitz! Pick a party dress (anything that has sequins, lace or fringe) and accessorize with elbow-length satin or lace gloves, pearl necklaces and a beaded headband. Wanna go all out? Add a feather boa or faux fur shawl to really turn heads.

Your makeup and hair can make or break your look. Check out one of the best Gatsby hair tutorials(the costumes are beyond gorgeous too!) and this super easy hairdo!

Mary Poppins & Bert

“Anything can happen if you let it.” is a lesson both adults and kids can learn from Mary Poppins. It’s not at all difficult to dress up as Mary and Bert. For Mary, you’ll need a crisp white shirt, midi black skirt. Accessorize with her signature black hat (don’t forget the little white and red flowers on the sides!), red bow tie and white gloves. As for Bert, just throw on a grey suit (if you’re not wearing a blazer, a vest or suspenders will do), a thin red scarf and a beret.

90’s Club Kids

If any of the ideas we’ve mentioned above seem too dull for you, give this a go. Reinterpret the club kids of the 90’s however you want! Go full fledge retro. The key to nailing this look is to be as bold as possible.

Clash different prints and super bright colors and most importantly, don’t hold back. Don’t forget to do your hair! Are you a real club kid if you don’t have glitter in your hair? We think not. Follow this tutorial for the sparkliest hairdo ever.

Life Revolves Around Living, Not Around Disability

“The only disability in life is a bad attitude.”

-Scott Hamilton

If you think that the Olympics 2016 was impressive, wait till you catch the Paralympics 2016. Team reve is as gutted as anybody who followed the Paralympics now that the games are over. Despite their physical disabilities, these athletes portrayed their superhuman abilities through their performance in Rio. The grid and tenacity they displayed was out of this world.

An Opening to Remember

The games kicked off on September 7th, 2016 with a great ceremony in Rio, the highlight of which was a pyrotechnic-filled show that ended with Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham “flying” down a  six-story high mega ramp and launching into a full flip through a large ring, all that done on a wheelchair?!?!

If you missed the opening of the 2016 Rio Paralympics, you can see the highlights from the ceremony here.

reve would like to pay tribute to all the athletes for not only giving their best but for inspiring mankind. They train just as hard as their Olympic counterparts and definitely deserve as much credit for their performance.

We might not be able to match the performance of the athletes, but the minimum we can do is to show our appreciation to them. This post on Paralympics Fashion is to show that they are no different from any of us. In fact, they look better than most of us.

asos_paralympicsChief Executive Officer at ASOS.com, Nick Robertson stated: “We are proud to be the formalwear supplier for the Paralympics GB team. We are excited at the opportunity to showcase the very best of our design house by creating a fashionable moment for the team. At ASOS we believe fashion is democratic and what better platform to celebrate than this?”

Joining Caitlyn Jenner are stalwarts like Chelsea Werner, a gymnast who has never let Down Syndrome stop her from pursuing her dreams, surfer Mike Coots who still takes to his board even though he lost his leg in a shark attack and boxer Namibia Flores who has fought against prejudice to make it big in life.

It certainly makes us sad that the Paralympics got far less exposure and recognition when they deserve it just as much. The next Paralympics will be held in Tokyo, Japan in 2020. Do remember to support your local heroes in the next games! They trained as hard as or even harder than our able-bodied athletes and will definitely go a long way with our support!
