If you guys have been reading Style Girlfriend for a while, you know that Halloween is my favorite holiday.
While I know plenty of people aren’t nearly as into getting dressed up as I am (I have a running list on my phone of possible costumes), that’s no reason to not participate.
I promise you have a million costumes hiding in your closet, and with a little Netflix bingeing and maybe one of two additions to the wardrobe (that you would actually wear anyway) you can have some seriously stellar costumes.
Take, for instance, the ringer tee. A favorite athleisure style popular in the 70’s and 80’s, this tee can act as a base for many well-known (or niche) characters from movies and Netflix series made – or set in – these style-dense decades.
Below how to wear a ringer tee for five different Halloween costumes:
A ringer tee is the classic tee that offers a little something extra.
