Easy Halloween Outfits

4 Easy Halloween Costume Ideas.png

Hello, World.

Halloween is just around the corner, though how it’s already that time of the year is unclear. In light of the approaching holiday, I wanted to share some quick, easy costumes ideal for those of us who don’t have time to put together an elaborate costume and don’t want to spend $70 on an outfit we will wear once [Halloween costumes have seriously gone up and it’s a little ridiculous]. So, I’ve put together four outfits you can likely find at your local thrift store, any Forever 21 Store for a bargain,  or your own closet.

First up: The Pink Lady. This iconic costume came into being after Grease and has stayed popular ever since. Grab yourself a pink jacket, some leather pants, pumps, and a silk scarf and you’re good to go!

Second, Cher from Clueless… As if! The key to a great Cher costume is mixing extremely feminine touches with classic 90s pieces. I guess its a good thing 90s trends are making a comeback (hello, velvet and chokers!). The look below is a more subdued look than the signature yellow plaid outfit. This look is complete with a furry pen, cross necklace, knee highs, and Mary Jane shoes. Screen Shot 2017-10-11 at 6.16.37 PM

I recently watched the new Gal Gadot Wonder Woman movie… I know, I’m late to the party. Still, I loved it! I was inspired to create a fun Wonder Woman look. Carry a fake sword so you can take on Ares, over-the-knee boots in red (or black or pewter). Find a red corset or red bodysuit, and match with the signature blue and white star skirt for a 20 minute look. Screen Shot 2017-10-11 at 6.41.48 PM

Inspired by one of my close friends, Rossy, I’ve put together a DJ look! I imagine this is what an aspiring, kick ass DJ would wear (mainly because I could see Rossy wearing this look and she fits the bill). Screen Shot 2017-10-11 at 7.45.41 PM

What are you going as for Halloween? Do you prefer store-bought or homemade costumes?

Super Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Hello, World!

If you’re like me, then Halloween is one of those things you always want to dress up for, and you have a good costume idea around July, but somewhere October 1st, you think it’s still forever away, and then all of the sudden it’s the Thursday before and you have no costume and few ideas. Well, never fear! I’m here with some easy last minute ideas to throw together before any Halloween bashes this weekend.

With the Gilmore Girls revival coming up, this costume is relevant, and many people will probably know what you are! I’d suggest checking out your local thrift stores if you don’t already have some of the items in your closet. Otherwise, it’s easy to use similar items that you already own! Also, to top it off, I suggest getting to go coffee cups and pasting the label from the pop up Luke’s Diners on it. That’ll definitely give you away if the sharp contrast between cowgirl and prep school girl doesn’t! This is great for a friends duo costume. Screen Shot 2016-10-26 at 9.51.47 PM.png

Need a really last minute alternative? Black skinnies, a black tee or blouse, and pumps will give you an undead vibe, then add some red lipstick and fake blood drips down you chin, and you’re all vamped out. Need inspiration? Watch an episode of Vampire Diaries! Screen Shot 2016-10-26 at 9.56.16 PM.png

If you love a classic icon, then Audrey Hepburn is the look for you! Have a little black dress in your closet? Pair with pearls, pumps, some costume accessories, and you’re good to go. Also, to top it off I would add long black gloves you can. You can also make a fake cigarette holder with black paper if you don’t have one and don’t want to buy one! Screen Shot 2016-10-26 at 10.36.31 PM.png

If you want to bend gender a bit, Luke Danes is a super easy look to pull off with stuff already in your closet. If you don’t have a flannel, I’m sure you could borrow one from a friend! And this look is incomplete without a backwards baseball cap! Screen Shot 2016-10-26 at 10.28.47 PM.png

Want to go comfy but still dresses up? Do your hair and makeup, but wear PJs and a sleep mask, and BOOM, you’re a Victoria’s Secret model. Screen Shot 2016-10-26 at 10.25.44 PM.png

Have a fancy dress that has a vintage vibe? Add a jeweled piece to your hair, and vintage or normal heels and you have a full flapper look reminiscent of the Great Gatsby. Screen Shot 2016-10-26 at 9.58.51 PM.png

Again, a super easy look to pull off if you’re really crunched for time. Red accessories are all you need to complete this look. Also, if you have thick black-frammed glasses that’s even better, but they aren’t necessary!

What’s you costume this year?
