Halloween is only DAYS away – EEK! If you’re like me and this is your favorite holiday, you might have had your costume and makeup picked out for months. BUT, if you’re also like me, you can be a procrastinator when it comes to the actual preparation. But don’t worry! I’m here to show you different Halloween costumes 2 ways – and they are all made up of super versatile items you might already own!
1. CHANEL OR CRUELLA DE VIL
Chanel Channel your inner queen with this look from Scream Queens. A checked pencil skirt, white blouse, and strappy heels are probably already in your closet! So to turn heads, go to your nearest thrift shop for the fur coat of your dreams. Finally, slick back your hair, throw on some bold lipstick, and voila!
If you’re not feeling that Emma Roberts look, throw that fur coat on over your LBD, grab some red shoes and accessories, and put on your evil smile as Cruella de Vil. Bonus points: find a wig (or temporary hair dye) to really play the part. *No dogs are harmed in the making of this costume.
2. A SANDERSON SISTER OR WENDY
If you’ve ever dressed up as a witch in your childhood (it seems like everyone has at least once), you’ve already got the basic materials for these costumes: the witch hat or cloak, a broom, and maybe even a wig. Go all out with a full length dress and wild hair for your favorite Hocus Pocus Sanderson Sister.
If you’ll be in a more kid-friendly Halloween locale, try out a simple red cloak. Bring out your best Hillary Duff youthfulness and find a Casper to celebrate the holiday with you!
3. AUDREY HEPBURN OR MARILYN MONROE
A more formal Halloween event may call for a classier look. Grab that LBD in your closet, throw on some pumps and sunnies, and you’re good to go. All you need are pearls and a fashionista attitude to complete the classic look!
Prefer the blonde bombshell? Curl your locks and slip into a white flowy dress. Red lipstick is your best option to portray this Hollywood icon. Whichever of these beauties you decide, don’t step out your front door without a perfect pout.
4. DOROTHY OR BELLE
Finally, with a few tweaks to some items you may already own, you can be either of these gorgeous favorites! While rocking a blue dress over a white blouse, find some red heels and a basket to go with your pigtails. Also, another bonus, you can bring your dog (or a stuffed animal) along with you!
Swap out those red shoes for black pumps and the basket for a book, and you’re basically the bright-eyed Belle already. This is a great couples costume to have your S.O. join in as Gaston OR the Beast!
