4 Everyday Dresses That Give Major Halloween Energy

As much as we love Halloween costumes, there is nothing better than a DIY costume that you can pull straight from your closet. Not only is it more cost-effective to wear a Halloween costume from things you already own, but it also lets you create a costume that’s perfectly you.

With just a few hair, makeup, and accessory changes, these five everyday dresses can transform from day to Halloween night:

 

Diagonal Strap Half Long Dress by OPEN THE DOOR

An edgy twist to the classic wrap dress, this frock is embellished with a simple silver buckle for maximum versatility. Even better, this dress can layer over any garment of your choosing, making it super easy to change up your look no matter the time of year.

 

Cute Snow Flower Dress by Fiona

Angel vibes, anyone? This dress can easily transform from a girly and fun costume to a soft and delicate option for a brunch with friends or any special occasion.

 

Flutter Moment Dress by chuu

Is there a costume more classic than Wednesday Addams, the queen of Halloween herself? A black dress with a white collar will always be reminiscent of the spooky icon, but this number by chuu can also transfer into the rest of the year as an easy way to look elegant, classy, and chic.

 

Del List Mini Set by LAGIRL

No matter what time of year, this top and skirt set is an adorable and easy going casual look. During the Halloween season, though, this set gives off total Beetlejuice vibes thanks to the neon green stripes. A pair of classic black sneakers and thigh high socks creates a punky aesthetic that looks cute and chic year round.

What’s your Halloween costume this year? Are you buying it, going full on DIY, or a little bit of both? Let us know in the comments!

The Hottest Fashion Trends of Fall 2019, According to Korean Fashion Brands

How fast did the Autumn season hit you? With summertime seeming like an eternity, it’s no surprise that most of us have yet to prepare our fall wardrobes. Worry not: KOODING’s roundup of Fall 2019 fashion trends will have you – and your closet – ready and fashion-forward in no time.

 

Leopard Print

Like it or not, leopard print’s comeback is STRONG. Nearly every Korean fashion brand and designer is utilizing the iconic print in a variety of colors, silhouettes, and styles. While not a brand new concept, leopard print has been experiencing a serious rebirth in the fashion world.

Leopard print is a foolproof way to implement a touch of boldness without leaving your comfort zone.

The best part? Leopard can easily transition as a neutral, making it easy to style with any color of your choosing. We prefer the classic black pairing, as shown by RINELL, OPEN THE DOOR, and Choper.

 

Plaid Outerwear

Plaid is a classic print that can be worn year-round but holds a special place in our hearts during fall. It reminds us of the coziness of flannels and the edgy vibe of punk and goth-inspired outfits, two of the season’s biggest fashion mainstays.

Mind Bridge has a huge selection of plaid blazers that transition perfectly from day to night.

Now, plaid can be seen in sophisticated pieces like the PC Span Semi Over Single Coat and the TR Span Plaid Semi Over Single Coat. The best part? Both of these coats are unisex, meaning anyone is guaranteed to serve looks in them.

 

Midi Skirts

While miniskirts will never truly go out of style, Fall 2019 fashion trends have been fully embracing longer skirt lengths. Whether it’s your favorite content creator, celebrity, or fashion icon, everyone has been seen rocking the midi skirt from bold prints and fabrics (as seen on NANING9) to the subtlest of neutral hues featured in Mind Bridge’s latest collections.

Pictured L-R: Mind Bridge Cotton Span Button H Line Skirt, NANING9 Car Leather Banding Skirt

Midi-length skirts are also an amazing transitional piece because they can be worn as the weather cools down from the warm summer months. They also look great with sneakers, boots, and any other footwear you want to pair with them for a totally versatile look.

To learn more about what inspired her to become a blogger, the best Toronto eats from a local, and more, read on.

 

Q: What inspires your fashion?

SA: Anything – trends, family, friends, music, and different cultures. I get inspired on the daily and wear whatever I’m into! 

Q: What influences your fashion style most?

SA: My mood influences my fashion style the most. My style is very diverse and I definitely do not stick to one specific style or type of clothing. Depending on how I’m feeling, I’ll go for edgy, cute, or a classy look. 

Q: What is your favorite item in your closet and why?

SA: My current favorite item in my closet is my brown leather backpack. Backpacks are an accessory that I do not normally gravitate towards but I’ve been digging the way it looks with my outfits lately.

Q: What is the best fashion investment you’ve ever made?

SA: I recently purchased a white clothing rack and it has honestly been so helpful when planning my outfits ahead of time. Would 100% recommend anyone to get a good quality rack for themselves!  

Q: What inspired you to become an influencer

SA: One of my best friends is a blogger and suggested I start an Instagram account. I decided to give it a shot and I really enjoyed it. I love sharing my outfits and lifestyle with my followers and it’s truly motivating that I can be an inspiration and create an impact for others as well!

It’s very extensive, but I quickly came to realize how important a proper skin care routine is. I think of skincare as an investment and for someone who was definitely not blessed with perfect skin, this routine has helped me achieve healthy and glowing skin.

Q: What is one thing most people don’t know about you?

SA: I’m obsessed with Korean variety shows, K-pop, and K-dramas 🙂 Ask me anything about Korean news and I’ll tell you all the juicy deets. 😋

Q: What’s your favorite thing about living in Toronto?

SA: I love the hustle of the city and the diverse people. You can really see that the people in Toronto are determined and working hard to reach their goals. The city inspires me to keep pushing and live a fast-paced life. 

Q: Where are your go to hang out spots, eats, and cafes in Toronto?

SA: Currently, I am loving Lavelle and Constantine to brunch. My go to restaurants are Little Piggy for some quality K-BBQ and KAKA for good sushi. But, my absolute favorite place to hang and eat is Kensington Market. Here you’ll find the most delicious eats for cheap and is probably one of the most unique and fun spots in Toronto. Some of my favorite restaurants in Kensington Market are Rasta Pasta for the best Jamaican food and Seven Lives for the tastiest fish tacos!

Q: Where are your favorite travel destinations and why (both in the states and other countries)?

SA: For the States, I recently traveled to LA for the first time and fell in love with the city. It’s a mix of the hustle from Toronto and chill, laid-back vibes. I still can’t decide if I like Toronto or LA better though! For Europe, my favorite destinations are Rome and Venice, Italy. I was in awe of the beautiful architecture every second I was there and would 100% recommend everyone to visit. Also, the food was 10/10. For Asia, obviously Korea! I go to Korea every other year to visit family and friends and it’s probably my ultimate favorite travel destination. The food, culture, and people are all amazing and I never get tired of it. I’m missing it now just thinking about it. 🙂 

Q: What are your travel essentials?

SA: Currently – Face masks, leather jacket, and resistant bands. Face masks are a must for me as my skin tends to suffer from the change in climates and location. My leather jacket pairs up with any outfit I wear so I always make sure to pack it. Lastly, I always pack my resistant bands so I can work out daily on the go and anywhere.

Q: What goals would you like to achieve before 2019?

SA: My main goal is to move my digital content creation to the next level. I want to continue to create unique and inspiring content for myself and my followers but kick it up a notch. 

Q: What is your favorite thing about KOODING?

SA: I love that KOODING houses so many of my favorite Korean clothing brands. This allows me to shop for any style and any trendy clothing piece I want. The site is also updated with new items regularly so I always have a huge selection to shop from.
