Here’s what you’ll need for your Rosie the Riveter costume:

For this costume, I bought one item– the denim shirt I wore. I could have easily gone to Goodwill or borrowed one from a friend but I’ve been wanting a chambray style shirt anyway so when I saw this one from Target, I knew it was worth the purchase for my costume and everyday wear! I borrowed some J Crew navy blue pants, boots, lipstick/ liner, and a bandana to pull this Rosie the Riveter costume together.

I did normal foundation base, neutral eye makeup, dark cat eye black liner on my upper lid, mascara, lip liner lipstick that stayed put all night from Mac for my face. Then we just pulled up my hair in a simple twist and tied the bandana on top. I lucked out because my friend Bryan is in the military and let me borrow his American flag emblem to put on my sleeve. See? Easy!
