3 Halloween Costumes You Already Have In Your Closet

I don’t know about you guys, but Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday! I love dressing up, I love candy, I love trick-or-treating! Everything about Halloween is my favorite, and since it’s just around the corner, I thought I’d share some of my costume ideas! The best thing about this list is that all of these outfits can be put together without buying much, which is great for my fellow poor college students. Most of these can be put together with items you have in your own closet! Scroll down for some budget-friendly Halloween costume ideas!


1. Go Classic- Black Cat, Witch

If you’re looking for the easiest costume to put together, think back to when you were a kid. Grab a pair of black tights and a crop top, draw some whiskers on with eyeliner, and pick up a pair of ears from Walmart. Voila! You’re a black cat. Wanna be a witch? Pull out your favorite skater dress, add some fun tights and boots, then just grab a hat. A swipe of burgundy lipstick and a statement necklace spice things up-broom is optional!


2. Go Vintage- Audrey Hepburn, Bonnie And Clyde

While you’ll see quite a few black cats and witches out this Halloween, you’ll probably see less of these characters. Vintage-styled costumes are a lot of fun to wear, and these two are iconic enough that you won’t have to explain what you are every other minute. For Bonnie and Clyde, a sweater vest with a skirt, a beret, a fake pistol and a partner should do it (add some fake money bags for a hint if you think you need to). Audrey Hepburn as Breakfast at Tiffany’s Holly Golightly is one of the most well-known film characters of all time. I actually dressed up as her myself last year (click here if you want to see how that turned out!). Just pick a dress with a classic silhouette, grab a pair of black gloves, and some pearls, then finish off the look with a bun and a tiara. If you have one, a cigarette holder really pulls it together! (I made one out of a chopstick.)


3. Go Disney

There’s a reason that we’re obsessed with Disney characters-they’re easy to recognize and easy to make a costume from things you already own! Here’s some inspiration for a couple of my favorite characters.



As you can see from this post, I’m getting a little obsessed with Polyvore haha. You can follow me here, I’d love to check out your accounts!

  1. Oh, snap, Halloween is my favourite holiday, too!! I love everything about it, the horror, the food, the dressing up, it’s awesome! This year I will just be staying at home with my family since I missed out on getting tickets to this Halloween concert that I was planning to go to (they were sold out!). The black cat/ witch outfit is lovely, it’s probably my all time favourite. The Disney idea is brilliant, especially Alice In Wonderland which I LOVE! I might give that a go this year, thanks so much for sharing these ideas, Kiki πŸ™‚ x

  2. You have no idea how badly I needed this post! I usually never procrastinate on a Halloween costumer but I honestly don’t know where the last four weeks have gone.

    Thinking I can pull together a nice witch costume with a cute LBD I have — thanks again!
