Get The Look: The Cat In The Hat Comes Back

“Why do you sit there like that?"

Everybody loves children's book characters, from Alice in Wonderland to Pippi Longstocking to the Cat in the Hat. They're a throwback moment, with many memories attached - perhaps you wanted to be just like your favorite heroine as a child (or still!), or you pull inspiration from them everyday; maybe thinking of them makes you happy because you remember your father reading these books to you, or possibly one of them was the first book you learned to read on your own. Whether your connection to these stories is surface-level or very deep, most of us love them in some way. So giving a nod to your childhood adventure partner-in-crime by dressing as them for Hallowe'en seems like a very fun idea - especially given that, as of right now, Hallowe'en is more or less a children's holiday.

This is a pretty easy costume to copy: just wear a black dress or sleeveless shirt-and-miniskirt combination with red-and-white striped socks and scarf and black ballet flats. Finish off with fuzzy black gloves, pigtails, flushed cheeks, and a cat-eye (obviously!) for a wholly youthful kitten look.

Don't forget to show me your costume by tagging me on Facebook or Instagram - or tell me about it in the comments!
