For this post, I’m going to show you how to create a Britney Spears fancy dress costume, using the iconic schoolgirl look from her “Baby One More Time” 90s video. There are a few ready-made costumes available at fancy dress stores, but creating one is a lot more fun and pretty straightforward.
Knotted White Shrug Top
Firstly, you’ll need a white knotted shrug top. You can also use a plain white blouse. I’ve also picked out this low-cost blouse by Tidecc at Amazon which is very low cost and receiving very good reviews. Simply tie the unbuttoned blouse around your waist with a front knot and roll the sleeves halfway up your arms.
Next, add a grey cardigan and roll up the sleeves. This cardigan by Amazon Essentials is almost the perfect length and colour, and priced very reasonably.
Pleated Black Mini Skirt
If you don’t already have one available, then add this low-cost black pleated skater mini skirt – dark grey will also suffice.
Over The Knee Socks
Add a pair of black over the knee socks. This pair by Satinoir is receiving excellent reviews from cusomers.
Pigtails and Hair Pom Poms
This read-made schoolgirl pigtails wig is excellent value and very suitable for a Britney look. Just add some fluffy pink pom poms for a more complete look – these feature an attached loop. If you’re hair is long enough then you need to add pigtails (bunches will suffice) with some pink ribbon. .
You can also purchase a ready-made costume on Amazon, as shown above. However, it is expensive and does not include the wig (just scrunchies) or socks. It comes in sizes small and X-large, but no medium or large, unfortunately.
That’s it! Your Britney Spears schoolgirl costume is now complete so let’s go party!
