It’s almost Halloween! Do you have your costume ready yet!? I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty last minute with costumes. I usually think “I’m not going to dress up this year”, but then, in the midst of all the fun, I decide I want to participate after all. For those of you who are like me, and don’t have a costume yet, no worries! I’m going to show you a few ideas you can create with some easy to find pieces of clothing that you most likely already have hanging in your closet!
First up we have a Bandit/Robber. Stripes never go out of style, and so it’s likely most of us have at least one striped top in our wardrobe. Pair it with some black skinny jeans or leggings, boots or black tennis shoes, a beanie and some gloves, and you have the perfect outlaw get up! How easy is that?!
Next we have an Audrey Hepburn idea. It’s a must to have a little black dress in our wardrobe. Glam it up with a tiara, long black gloves (that you can find at almost any Halloween store right now), pearls, sunglasses, and heels, and voila! You have a modern day Audrey in minutes!
For our third costume idea, we will use the super trendy flannel shirt. If you don’t have one of these, you can seriously find them almost anywhere right now. Pair them up with some leggings and boots, a straw hat, and a little fringe for a “straw-like” appeal, and you have a cute scarecrow!
A while ago tulle skirts were all the rage. Chances are, you have one sitting in the back of your closet right now. If not, you can make your own using this tutorial. Pair it with some cute striped leggings (these can also be found at almost any Halloween store), boots, a cute black crop, and a hat for a classic witchy look.
And lastly, we have a flapper costume. Over the last two years, not only has this 20’s dress style come back, thanks to movies like “The Great Gatsby”, but they’ve also become a popular choice for occasions like Homecoming and Prom. If you happen to have one hanging in your closet, why not break it back out and dress it up with some gloves, pearls, and a cute headband for this fashionably vintage costume choice!?
And there you have it! I hope this helps you to be creative with what you have, so you can dress up in style! Happy Halloween!
