Follow my Angelic lead. All you need is an all white ensemble and some wings from the closest costume shop. Voila, your an Angel sweetie!


Smear some black cream liner under your eyes and throw on a football jersey like model Toni Garrn. You’ll be comfy and cute in this costume.


Have a tiara and an over the top baby blue dress? Then you’ve got the makings to get dressed up as Cinderella just like Paris Hilton.


Candice Swanepoel proves all you need to be a sexy vampire is a bold red lip, a drop of fake blood and killer fangs.


Create your own Poison Ivy look like Kim Kardashian in a painted leaves face mask, green dress and red wig…bonus if you add leaves to the dress.


If you’ want some attention the Halloween, you’ll love this costume via the Blurred Lines video. All you need is some skimpy nude colored clothing and high self-esteem, as you will be wearing pretty much nothing else.


Grab your creativity, a Halloween makeup kit and take that flower crown you haven’t touched since summer to follow Hillary Duff’s lead with a trendy homage to the Day of the Dead.


Lauren Conrad looks supercalifragilistic. Channel your own sexy Mary Poppins with a flirty black skirt, button down, flowered hat and don’t forget your umbrella.


You probably have the makings of a ‘bad Sandy’ costume in your closet, just throw on a wig to cop Jessica Hart’s costume.

Cuff your Jeans like a Pro

Here are the formulas behind the season’s must-try looks: the traditional skinny cuff, the undone half cuff, and the polished thick cuff. With these style tips you’re sure to become a cuffing pro!

cuffjeans-thickA thick cuff requires a wider-leg pair of jeans that are a little loose.

Steps: 1. Fold the jeans to create a one-inch cuff. 2. Fold again so that the cuff is about two inches thick. 3. Smooth out the cuff to create a polished look.

Styling Tip: Make this your weekend go-to with a relaxed tee and ankle-strap flats.

cuffjeans-skinnyThe skinny cuff works best on fitted silhouettes, as it creates the appearance of a long, lean line.

Steps: 1. Fold the bottom of the jeans to create a half-inch cuff. 2. Fold a second time, adding an extra half-inch to the cuff. It should be nice and tight and hit at or just above the ankle.

Styling Tip: Elongate your legs further by adding a nude wedge or low-cut heel.

cuffjeans-halfcuffThe half cuff is best suited for slouchier styles like the boyfriend jean.

Steps: 1. To achieve an accordion-like look, start by making a single four-inch cuff. 2. Bunch the bottom of the cuff to create dimension and texture. 3. Finish by folding the top hem downwards.

Styling Tip: Give your jeans the downtown treatment by adding a worn-in jacket and statement stilettos.
