As I have gotten older, the magic of Halloween hasn't faded. I still think about what I want to wear all year long! But, when it comes to the costume itself, I'm a sucker for a good ole' fashion "I shopped my closet for this costume" look.
Here are costume ideas for shopping your closet, OR if you buy something, here's how to pick pieces you'll want to wear again and again!
CruellaA classic look has never been more effortless!! Pair the Scarlett Mini Dress with the Delightful Hair Clip just add a red lip, a red heel, and a fuzzy coat, and you're golden! Not only is this outfit cute for a costume, but you can wear the dress for going out OR throw a graphic tee overtop, tie at the waist, and wear it as a skirt!
Everyone loves playing a villain! All you need is the Lexi Leather Jumpsuit. This leather jumpsuit will be a fall/winter staple that you'll want in your closet. Just add a fun boot, cat ears, a red lip, and a lacey mask if you're feelin' it!
Belle (Beauty & the Beast)Picture it: You're going to a Halloween party, and you roll up with books and a baguette. You are Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Bonus: you have bread if you get hungry and a book if you get a little bored. The perfect costume does exist! What are you going to wear?? The Lucinda set in blue is for you (Lucinda Maxi Skirt and Lucinda Top). You could also BYOC (bring your own cup) and call it chip!
FRIENDSHIP OUTFITSCouple costumes aren't just for couples. They're for friends too!
Lizzie McGuire Movie
Who doesn't remember this cult classic! Are you going as Lizzie? What to get: Lennon Blazer, Naomi Long Sleeve, and Charlie Corduroy pants. Wanna go as Isabella?? What to get: Aniyah Blazer and Aniyah shorts. All of these pieces are fun and unique for fall. Wear them together or as separates to spice up jeans and a white tee.
Grease: Sandra Dee & Sandy
Look, just because something has been done before doesn't mean that you can't do it again AND do it better! Sandra Dee: Pair the Melissa Knit Cardigan with the Lucinda Top and Lucinda Skirt. The Lucinda set is quite literally perfect for fall! Buy it and thank me later. Sandy: Lexi Leather Jumpsuit, heels, and a red lip! (**writer's note: If you're going to more than one Halloween party and you get this jumpsuit, you could wear it for multiple looks. I.e., see cat woman above!)
