Every year, I find myself scrambling around last minute to find a suitable Halloween costume!
Some people take days and weeks to put together something super creative. I always go the laziness route and find what’s in my closet that could make a cool Hallow’s Eve disguise!
This year is no different. And if you’re like me, the time to find something is now. Behold, a few last minute Halloween ideas:
1. A Flapper
If you were enthused by this year’s Great Gatsby movie, or just have a thing for drop waisted, sequined stunners, this look is for you! It can be super simple, as Ashley Madekwe displays. All you’ll need is a ruffled mini, copious necklaces, and a bedazzled headpiece. Added points if you can rustle up a long cigarette holder.
2. J. Lo
Nicole Richie killed it with her J.Lo costume last year! If you still have a velour tracksuit, brush it on off. Add in a pair of heels, dark sunglasses, and sparkly hoops. When you pose, make sure you lipgloss is popping, and your mouth is held firmly agape.
3. Karl Lagerfeld
Karl Lagerfeld’s black and white buttoned up ensemble shouldn’t be hard to replicate in a pinch. You undoubtedly have the basics: a white button down, dark sunglasses, black slacks, and a black blazer. Rush out to get a powdered gray ponytailed wig to drive it all home!
4. Dee & Cher from Clueless
Plaid is so trendy this season! Capitalize off its resurgence in a pleated plaid skirt, offset by a cardigan, Mary Janes, and knee high socks. Keep your cell phone on your ear all night for added pizzazz.
5. A ghost
Every year, if all else fails, this is my fallback! LOL. A sheet over the head with two holes…voila!
I’m off this afternoon to find….something.
What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
