As I’m sure we all know, Halloween is quickly approaching (only four days away!) and that means one thing: Halloween parties! And if any of my readers are like me, you may have been procrastinating in the costume department this year, meaning you are probably in the market for something, quick easy and affordable. As my longtime readers know, Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday and I would love to dress up as, as many different things as I can. However, sometimes on a college budget that just isn’t feasible. So in the spirit of the holiday (and to help out my fellow holiday procrastinators with a last minute costume idea) I’ve decided to do this special style guide featuring cost friendly, easy, and restyle-able Halloween costumes, featuring some great finds from my sponsor, SheIn.
A mime is the perfect costume as well as a quick fix for any last minute Halloween parties. The reason why this is one of my go-to costumes is because I personally have a black and white striped top collection that could probably rival that of The Hamburglar. But also because all the items needed for this costume are generally very easy to come by! All you need is a black beret hat, a black and white striped top (as mentioned earlier), some black pants, and some black shoes. After you have this together just throw on some white face paint and red lipstick and you're set! And as you'll see with all the other costumes on this list, you can even restyle all of these pieces throughout the year. Hooray for versatility right?
Rosie The Riveter
Next up, if you're the type of woman who is all about girl power (Which really, shouldn't we all be?) I would say that going as the iconic Rosie The Riveter would be a great costume choice for you! First of all, all over denim outfits have been making a comeback during the fall of 2017, and is anticipated to stick around throughout the spring of 2018. Meaning, the adorable denim top, jeans combo, and black sneakers combo will be a cute look for months to come. So all you need to complete this look is a red bandanna or headband to mix up your look a bit!
Skeleton or Pumpkin
Though this outfit choice might be a cop out, this outfit is the best choice for those of us who might be a little lazy in the holiday/costume department, but that doesn't mean it doesn't make for a chic and spooky look! Just add a little bit of smoky, sultry makeup and all your work is done.
The White Rabbit (Alice in Wonderland)
This next costume is for those of us who are a bit more ambitious about the holiday, and who like to wear formal attire throughout the year. The reason I chose The White Rabbit for this list is because it is fun, cute, and unique! All you need is a pair of bunny ears, a red blazer, a white dress (Love the dress I chose for this look? You can check out how I styled it here!), a clock purse, and a nice pair of black pumps. And the reason why this look works so well for both a costume party and for everyday life is due to the fact each of these pieces can be worn together (well, minus the bunny ears) and separately all year round,making them some very versatile pieces for your wardrobe.
Last but not least, our final costume is the portrayal of everyone's favorite spooky girl: Wednesday Addams! This costume is the most simple of the bunch but is arguably the most chic and possibly the most versatile for all year round wear. All this outfit requires is a simple white blouse, a black fit and flare dress, along with some cute black heels. And the reasons each of these work so well separately (as well as together) is much like The White Rabbit Costume above, you can mix and match all of these pieces to make some very simple but chic outfits!
