Your average girl shows a little more skin than usual on Halloween, and as a general rule, society is okay with it. Women usually avoid talking shit about other women and the outfit choices they’ve made, and guys typically don’t make long-term assumptions about a girl’s personality just from what she chooses to wear on one night.
When it comes to pasties, however, there is still great disagreement among the general public as to what side of the Halloween line they’re on. Once upon a time, they would have definitely been considered out of bounds, but this year, they’re very on trend. As you can see from the above photo, Nicki Minaj rocked nipple tape for her bondage cop outfit, and Miley Cyrus recently did so for her Lil Kim getup.
On the one hand, it’s easy to see why people aren’t so stoked about the pasties. They’re so sexually forward that they’re distracting. They’re basically a half step up from just going topless, and they feel less like a costume and more like an excuse to just almost be naked, like they’re asking to be gawked at all night.
On the other hand, however, no one is forcing anyone to dress a certain way. If rocking pasties isn’t a girl’s thing, she’s free to dress in whatever the hell type of outfit she wants. According to Mean Girls, Halloween is the one night of the year where girls can wear whatever the hell they want, and the idea of taking that away is pretty troublesome.
