You’ve decorated the house, prepared for trick-or-treaters and nailed your kids costumes. Now it’s your turn– but don’t get stuck wearing the same old witch costume again, you’re better than that! Here are 7 costumes you can put together using clothes you probably already have in your closet:
1. Hollywood Starlet
Ditch the sweats for Hollywood glam! Pair a little black dress with costume jewelry and classic black heels. Three items that will never gather cobwebs at the back of your closet.
Throw on a shearling jacket, aviator sunglasses, and knee high-boots and you’ll be flying through the neighborhood in style.
Red pumps, black pants, and a striped shirt. Think inside the box with this easy and entertaining mime costume. Added bonus: now your kids don’t have to pretend they don’t hear you.
4. Pageant Queen
Get out the princess crown because there she is…Miss Mom! Dress in an elegant full-length gown and practice your wave.
5. Fortune Teller
Be the perfect fortune teller with a patterned maxi skirt, peasant blouse, bangles, and a headscarf. You don’t need a crystal ball to know you’re in for a late night.
Some things just always work – and we don’t mean healthy Halloween snacks. Take the plaid shirt, skinny jeans, and cowboy boots combo to the next level with a fringe vest and you’ll be prepared to graze all evening.
7. Cat Burglar
Top a sleek all-black ensemble with a leather moto jacket and borrow some jewels for a convincing cat burglar costume. Just don’t get locked out of the house.
Now it’s time to examine the kids’ candy!
