Halloween Inspiration: TLC
Posted on October 20 2014
If you grew up in the '90s, you know the crazy/sexy/cool that is TLC. T-Boz, Left Eye, and Chilli were at the forefront of female hip hop style, pushing boundaries (remember their pro-safe-sex eyewear?) and making a mark with their often outrageous coordinated outfits. We love that these ladies rocked out with their bras out and think their moxie and style make them a perfect choice for an amazing costume. First and foremost, you'll need 2 friends to join you in your transformation to '90s R&B royalty. Once you determine who is who, you'll need to get your hair and makeup in order—one of you will probably need a T-Boz wig (or at the very least some bright red extensions), one of you will need the signature Left Eye stripe. You can go monochromatic with your outfits, or add doses of metallic or neon too; the main thing is to make sure you all mix and match. For example, each of you could choose a different For Love and Lemons strappy bra—the Longline Bondage, XXX Bondage, and Love You Knot Bondage styles are all great options. Pair with oversized pants like silk pajama bottoms, workout sweats, giant overalls, etc. (the same style in different colors would be ideal if you can find it). Paying attention to the details is key: make sure you all have matching underwear on, and that it peeks out above the pants (the Transparent High Rise Panty is our top pick). Finish things off with high-tops and some hoop earrings or a choker. And remember to practice your harmonies, ladies, since you don't want no scrubs this Halloween!
