4 Tips for the Perfect Naughty School Girl Costume


Britney started it all off with her outfit in Baby One More Time - go on, watch it, it's pretty good! Everyone loves a costume that crosses the line, just a wee bit, and Naughty School Girl is definitely in that category.

Follow our tips for blending bad-girl with innocence and see if you can out-do Britney! Post some pics of your work for us here!

1. THE HAIR: If you have long hair, you're in luck. Otherwise, you're going to need a wig, like the Cheap Date Wig from Costume Box. We want to create the impression that you are in high school, which I'm hoping you're not (otherwise this is all kind of creepy) so pig tails are a must. You've probably made them a million times, but in case you need a refresher, check out this How To: Pigtails video. Add some pink ribbons for a final touch.

2. THE MAKEUP: We're going for the Bambie look here ladies, so make those eyes pop and lips pout. Here are a few tips on Brit's makeup style. If you don't have freckles, throw a few on, they'll help create the illusion you are after.

3. THE UNIFORM: This part is easy: get a school girl uniform and do what you used to after your mum pulled around the corner out of eyesight: hike up the skirt, tie the shirt in a knot and show off your mid-drift, and be sure to complete the outfit with bobby socks, a pair of Mary Jane shoes, and throw a petticoat underneath to accentuate the skirt. I can hear your mother gasping at your facebook pictures now!

4. ACCESSORIZE: Complete your outfit with a few things like fake glasses, chewing gum, school books, and an apple for the teacher of course!
