The schoolgirl costume is a popular choice for women wishing to be a bit risque. Whether you are looking for a sexy Halloween outfit or just erotic fetish wear, schoolgirl costumes are usually a hit. Even better, they can be quite inexpensive and easy to create.
Attitude Is Everything
Perhaps the most important aspect of the schoolgirl outfit is the attitude. You'll want to have an air of innocence. This will, of course, be countered by the overt sexuality of the costume, but that is all part of the package. To achieve the appropriately youthful look, you'll need to pay attention to the details.
Schoolgirl Costume Makeup
Makeup with this costume should be as natural as possible. You want a healthy, dewy look. Use foundation and powder as needed to cover any blemishes, but don't overdo it. Apply a bit of blush for a rosy glow, and add lipgloss in a lipsmacking color.
The ideal schoolgirl hair is long pigtails. If your hair is long enough for this simple style, just part it in the middle and secure each tail with ribbons. If your hair cannot be put in pigtails, consider:
- A high ponytail
- A single braid
- Youthful barrettes
- A headband
Any simple style reminiscient of childhood will work with this costume.
A short, pleated plaid skirt is the best choice if you are going for a Catholic schoolgirl look. Any color scheme can be used, but skirts of red, green, or black are the most popular choices. The coordinating blouse should be relatively simple. A basic white in a button-down style is a favorite. For added sexiness, try:
- Wearing a colored bra beneath the see-through white top. The bra should match the skirt.
- Knotting the shirt just beneath the breasts, leaving the midriff bare.
- Leaving the top few buttons undone.
Other options for appropriate tops include "baby t-shirts", camis, midriff-baring sweaters, or tuxedo shirts. Yet another idea is to wear a prep school-style blazer or a letter jacket over a bustier, bra, or lace crop top.
Shoes and Leggings
For an authentic schoolgirl costume, shoes should be simple and conservative. Some great studious styles are:
- Penny Loafers
- Saddle Shoes
- Mary Janes
- Ballet Shoes
- Basic Keds
While it is tempting to add an erotic touch, such as garters or fishnet, the best legwear for this costume is really a pair of basic knee highs.
Like most things with the schoolgirl costume, accessories are pretty simple. Basically, anything that a "real" schoolgirl might carry could became a great prop. Some ideas include:
- A backpack
- A book
- An apple
- A tie
- A lollipop
