Rocky Horror Fashion Show

As we near the end of October, temperatures finally drop and we approach the Halloween season. This week, we decided to head Downtown Tucson to showcase how we style Halloween-inspired looks.

Look One: Jake

I wanted to go for the more traditional colorway and color scheme of Halloween which is why I went for the purple crewneck with the orange Bapestas. I also wanted to keep the colors as dark as possible which is why I went with the black slacks. I didn’t want to make it look like I was trying too hard, so I wanted to bring together pieces that gave off the skateboarder/casual wear aesthetic without looking like I was forcing the look.

Look Two: Kami

I associate Halloween with a sense of darkness, which is why I ultimately opted for a fully black outfit. I really liked the contrast between a button-down and cargo pants, as they are two articles of clothing that are not necessarily in the same category. This was definitely an edgier look that aimed to encapsulate that darkness associated with the Halloween season.

Look Three: Jake

I decided to color block this fit. I wanted to contrast the dark bottoms with the bright white hoodie in order to give off a simple but load aesthetic. Because the recycle logo on the hoodie is orange, I went with the Bapestas so that there could be a small consistency with the colors so the outfit looked like it went together effortlessly.

Halloween is a rare time where you are able to dress with fewer restrictions and more creativity. This look is definitely more feminine, but really brings out the fun that is correlated with the holiday.

Jewelry: Kendra Scott and Charming Charlie’s
Shoes: Kelly & Katie

Look Five: Jake

I chose the simple dark colors because I wanted to give off the dark aesthetic of the Halloween season. The facemask was picked so that it resembled a Halloween mask but also gave off the ‘Hypebeast” look without doing too much.

When I first wore this outfit, I was with one of my friends and we both agreed that I looked like one of the Witches of Eastwick. I had no choice but to recreate the look for this Halloween-inspired post, as it ties in that darkness I mentioned previously, but still brings about a sense of femininity. This is by far one of my favorite outfits to throw on because it looks pulled together, but requires minimal effort and it is extremely comfortable.

Look Seven: Jake

I really wanted to play off the idea of darkness as being a key factor for the spookiness of Halloween which is why I chose the full black fit. However, I wanted to the bright red flames of the Revenge x Storms to contrast the whole aesthetic.

I wanted to give off the idea of the flames being on my feet to represent Hell and the Devil; two entities that are key to Halloween.
