Halloween Costume Idea: The Plastics from Mean Girls

I've watched Mean Girls about 1,001 times but never thought about dressing as one of the Plastics for Halloween....until now! Mean Girls is a cult classic. That goes without saying, even though I just said it. But how can you achieve an authentic costume? Well, I've got the basics covered for you with this fab Mean Girls & the Plastics inspired Halloween costume idea. In case you were wondering, the Plastics are a group of popular meanies consisting of Regina, Gretchen, Karen, & Cady from the film Mean Girls.

You'll need a pink sweater. This cropped pink sweater ought to do the trick. After all "we wear pink on Wednesdays," remember? Don't forget your pink otherwise you can't sit with us. Why not pair your pink sweater with a denim skirt? They were extremely popular in the early 2000s along with sling back kitten heels which are worn throughout the film. Put all 3 together & you've got yourself a very 2000s look. Mean Girls came out in April 2004.



To accessorize your Mean Girls Halloween costume, you can add a bow or brooch to your pink sweater as Karen wears in a couple of the stills from the film. I recommend a small strappy bag because that's what they wore back then. Not very practical, but hey it's fashion. Most of the purses throughout the film are simple in style, compact, & have just a little strap. In the movie, Cady wears a bracelet from Africa. I found this cool beaded bracelet set.

Halloween is inching forward. Do you have any plans yet? Hopefully these Halloween costume ideas have come in handy. :]

So fetch!

  5. This is such a great idea! I feel like people would have a lot of the clothing for this costume already, which makes it a more affordable costume option.

  28. Such as an interesting idea. I've never thought of dressing up as a Mean Girl. It's not the usual Halloween costume, but being a Mean Girl will do the job in Scaring away people :D
