How to Make a Sailor Girl Outfit

You have to think a lot before deciding a costume for a Halloween party. You have to decide to go for a vintage outfit or a modern one, formal or informal, completely scary or a bit fancy and so on. However, a sailor girl costume is one of the top priorities of many girls for Halloween and even other fancy parties. Apart from hanging out with friends, a sailor girl costume gives you a perfect nautical look, if you love to have one. Obviously being a student, you cannot afford to purchase those designer brands out of your pocket money. You can make your own sailor girl costume at home and it will rarely coast you a penny if you already have the required things at home. Otherwise, you have to spend some money to get the appropriate items to make your own sailor girl outfit but it won’t cost you as much as you pay for purchasing a readymade dress from any shop.

Things Required:

– Striped blue and white shirt
– Navy blue skirt
– Red scarf
– Sailor hat
– Navy blue nail polish
– Matching jewellery
– Anchor bag (optional)
– A rope (optional)


  • 1

    If you have a blue and white striped shirt in your wardrobe, it is fine; otherwise, buy a cheap shirt from any store. A long-sleeved shirt should be preferred.

  • 2

    Buy a navy blue skirt with a reasonable length. It should end 3 to 4 inches above your knees, not too short or too long.

  • 3

    You will further need a red scarf or ascot to wrap around your neck. A shorter scarf will look nice, rather than a long one.

  • 4

    You can get a cheap sailor hat at any party store and it won’t cost you much.

  • 5

    Blue flat shoes will look good with your sailor girl outfit but black shoes will also serve the purpose.

  • 6

    Tuck your shirt into your skirt and wrap up the scarf around your neck. You can knot the ascot lie a tie around your neck as well.

  • 7

    Appropriate jewellery will be a nice add-on to your appearance. Try to find earrings shaped like anchors and a similar sort of a pendant for your neck.

  • 8

    No heavy makeup is required and you should try to give a natural look. However, a red lipstick will really look nice.

  • 9

    Chose a navy blue nail polish to paint your nails for a complete package.
