Celebrating Halloween but still not sure what to wear?
I get it. I never buy Halloween costumes. I don’t want to spend $100 on something I’ll only wear once and that probably looks awful on me. All those sexy whatever costumes are cut for women with much bigger boobs than me.
Anyway, I’ve been making costumes out of things I already own for the past few years. And when I say making, I mean with as little DIY as possible. Some of us just aren’t that crafty, and that’s ok.
I’ve come up with 8 easy Halloween costumes that are already in your closet. Well, probably. You might not have all of the items I’ve listed below, but I’m sure most girls will have at least one of the combinations. All of the costume ideas are style icons, so it’s inevitable that most of us have copied them in some way. Add some simple (or no) makeup, hair styling (or a wig if you want to go the extra mile), and you’re done!
As for me? My boyfriend and I are doing our first ever couple’s costume and I’m so excited. We’re going as Napoleon and Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite. Not only is it my first couple’s costume, it’s my first funny costume and my first time dressing up as a man. And all I had to buy was a bolo, wig and moustache (which I’ll wear with my jeans and a button down). Don’t you love Halloween?
8 Easy Halloween Costumes That Are Already In Your Closet
You’ll need: a blazer, tank, skinny jeans, and ankle boots. Bonus points for a leopard coat.
You’ll need: a ‘suit’ (black blazer, white shirt, black trousers, black tie), fingerless gloves, sunglasses, and a ponytail.
You’ll need: an eyebrow pencil, bomber jacket, jeans, sneakers, a flat iron (depending on your hair).
Or if you feel like dressing up more: a blazer, trousers, and red lipstick. But you’ll still need that eyebrow pencil.
You’ll need: a leather jacket, vintage tee, jeans, sneakers, sunglasses. Bonus points for a long messy bob.
You’ll need: an old t-shirt, a plaid shirt to layer over it, ripped jeans, old sneakers. Bonus points for greasy hair and a 5 o’clock shadow.
There are a lot of variations with this one, but the easiest is Funny Face Audrey.
You’ll need: a fitted black top/sweater, fitted black trousers, black flats, a high ponytail.
You’ll need: a shift dress, 60s-inspired boots or flats, a banana line and false eyelashes. Bonus points for a pixie cut (long, straight hair works too).
If makeup isn’t your strong suit you might want some help with this one.
You’ll need: a vest, a button down, jeans, a bunch of leather bracelets, a hat. Bonus points for facial hair, eyeliner, and feathers.
Thanks for reading and Happy Halloween! What are you dressing up as?
