16 Style Lessons We Can Learn From Halloween Movies, In GIFs

Halloween movies are some of the best seasonal movies because they work both around the holiday and whenever you need a good scare. Whether it’s a creepy foreign flick or a 1970s slasher, there are so many perfect ultra-quotable and epically frightening films. But what about the iconic fashion featured in lots of these movies?

1. If other people can smell your perfume, you’re wearing too much.

2. It’s okay to treat yourself to both a manicure and facial when you really need them.

3. You don’t always need to choose dark lipstick OR heavy eye makeup.

4. From Eve: “Always wear a pretty bra, because at some point, you will get topless while being chased by a maniac.”

5. From Liz: “…And wear running shoes so you don’t twist a damn ankle.”

6. It’s okay to look different.

7. You should be more mindful of your closet’s contents.

(No, seriously.)

8. There are worse shower surprises than eye + shampoo mishaps.

9. Miley was not the first person to lick gross shit.

10. Being hot is basically everything, folks.

11. People who dress exactly alike are creepy, not cute.

12. …Unless you’re in a group of 4 and have choreography.

13. Always find new, fun ways to stay in shape!

14. Regular dental checkups should be integral to your beauty regime. Also, do not let pink eye from too much makeup go untreated.

    I wish this post could have just been gifs of Hocus Pocus and Tim Curry. Horror movies are the part I really, really dislike about Halloween. :/

      Awww I’m sorry! I am a huge horror person, it’s the only genre I feel like I’m particularly interested in. :(

      No worries Samantha! It is after all your article. :) I just have a lot of visual triggers and I should know better! I think my biggest issue (and I think I saw a pie chart about this) is that when the movie is over my mind goes all nutso and what I can visualize and think up is about a 1000 times scarier than what I watched. But I’ll always have Rocky! :)
