Gypsy Costume Ideas
Tired of dressing up as a vampire or a ghost or a princess for fancy dress parties? Take a more bohemian approach to costumes with these ideas to dress up like a gypsy.
- Choose a long, colorful maxi dress with floral prints. If you cannot find something that creates this effect, then wear two colorful skirts of different lengths in contrasting colors over each other to create a frilly, tiered look.
- Ideally, you should choose a blouse that is loose and lacy with ruffles, and which has an elastic at the waist to give it a gathered look. If you do not find a blouse in this design, then pick a plain white blouse and wear a waistcoat/corset over it.
- Now take a vibrant, colorful scarf, fold it diagonally, and tie it around your waist. Over this wear multiple belts, tied loosely. Pick a broad belt with a big buckle and tiny, daintier belts with metal work.
- Accessorizing is the next step and you can start by wearing big earrings, multiple bracelets and bangles, and a couple of chains.
- You can choose to either go bare-feet, wear gladiators or tie-ups, or even wear a pair of lace-up, flat boots to complete your gypsy look.
- If you do not have a pair of breeches, then you could opt to wear tight leather pants or even drop-crotch pants that are in vogue these days.
- Wear a loose cotton shirt (normally called the artist's shirt) which gathers at the waist. You can wear a belt to ensure that the shirt remains tight-fitting at the waist. Do not tuck in the shirt.
- Wear a scarf or bandanna of your choice as headgear and weave some beads into your hair.
- Raid your wife's, girlfriend's, or sister's wardrobe for some chunky rings and bracelets. You can buy clip-on golden hoops to wear as well.
