Spooky season is among us and you know what that means… time to start planning your Halloween costumes! Halloween in college is such a blast, it’s like every frat party with a theme coming to life at once. However, figuring out what to wear can be super stressful. You want to look cute, but you don’t want to be exposed or uncomfortable. Another way to feel confident is wearing matching or coordinating costumes with a group of friends. Couple costumes are way overrated… girl group costumes are in this year! Below are 30 ideas for you and your besties. Happy Halloween!!
