In honor of the Scream Queens favorite Holiday being right around the corner

giphy-24giphy-25giphy-26

The Fox series Scream Queens recently debuted their second season and to say I was excited is an understatement. If you haven’t seen it think Mean Girls meets Scary Movie. The best part of the show besides their hilarious puns and dry humor is that every episode the characters are dressed to kill, literally and figuratively. Their outfits are always pastel and coordinated from head to toe. Nothing is held back when it comes to rhinestones, fur and feathers.

During every episode I am either dying laughing or taking mental notes of what I can take from my own closet to recreate one of their outfits. So I decide to do the same thing for you with stuff from ShopRiffraff… I hope you’re ready to get inspired.

If you didn’t know, now you know so don’t miss it 8pm next Tuesday, or on Hulu!!!!

Other ways of rocking denim this fall:

  • Overalls
  • Denim jacket
  • Denim dress
  • Denim skirt

BONUS: Denim on Denim

Many people are afraid to rock this trend due to the infamous Brittany Spears and Justin Timberlakes VMA outfit circa 2001, however rocking denim on denim is totally easy and doable, here’s how:

  • Wear a dark wash on the bottom and a lighter wash on top
  • DON’T wear the same wash on top and bottom

Play up your denim looks with fun accessories to bring in other colors and you will bet set! Make sure to check out our denim on Shop Riffraff!
