With Halloween quickly approaching, every girl that hasn't already planned their outfit and bought all the supplies back in August is starting to panic on how to dress up! Especially the ones that don't want to spend big bucks on a costume to wear one night and never see again. Luckily, all you need is a little creativity to turn your everyday outfits into a costume and we've got you covered! Instead of throwing cash away on something you'll throw into the back of your closet November 1, invest in items your closet will thank you for! We rounded up our top 4 picks of 'Haute Halloween' costumes you can wear the night of, and still look chic for date night the night after!
Turn your striped wide leg pants into a chic sailor inspired look with a navy blazer and paper boy hat! You don't need a flimsy white paper hat to look like you've been sailing the high seas, just pair our MinkPink Nautica Stripe Trouser with a navy blue blazer with gold hardware like our faves from Free People and Zara for a more 'grown up' take on the sailor costume. Layer a white tank or tee underneath to keep it simple and take on the newest trend for the season, white booties! White leather ankle booties are in every designer's collection this season from Gucci all the way down to Target! We've chosen our more affordable faves from Sam Edelman and even cheaper from Qupid if you want to wait to invest in this trend! Shop the look:
2. Bank Robber
We love the moody black vibes for Fall, which is why our MinkPink Morgan Stripe Top is the perfect basic for your take on the always popular Bank Robber look! Instead of destroying your black eyeliner by marking yourself up with a robber "mask", just throw on some thick black framed faux glasses and a black beanie for the same type of vibe to make this look work for every day, not just Halloween! We know you have some black skinny jeans somewhere in your closet, but if not, we've linked our favorite form fitting pair from Madewell (so you know they're good!) Tie the ensemble together with a pair of combat or edgy boots with a chain detail like these from Zara so you can get away! A bank robber look wouldn't be complete without a canvas bag with a giant dollar sign drawn on, but instead of doing a DIY project, you can get the same effect with a white bucket bag or a vinyl one strap bag that are popping up everywhere this season! How easy is this look for all the last minute girls out there?! Shop the look:
This look is one to wear every day of the week! Apron dresses are making a comeback this season and our MinkPink Valerie Pinnie Dress is the perfect stepping stone! She looks great paired with a basic white tee, but you can make her more work appropriate with a classic white button down like this one from Express. To keep with your librarian-esque look, we love a good silk neck tie! You can go with lots of colors for Fall like mustard or burgandy, but to keep with the black and white theme, we suggest this great one from Something Navy at Nordstrom! She knows classic style, and you can't go wrong with her collection! Faux glasses are great way to add a little something extra to your outfit.. Even if you don't technically need them for vision, they can be fun to experiment with! Tortoise shell is definitely a fave of ours and goes with the classic theme of this style.. To pull together this look, rather than school girl knee high socks, just go for a sock bootie! Pointed toe styles are in this season and we love the chic look of it all! Go ahead and shop this look for more than just your Halloween night:
Everyone LOVES a good cat costume for Halloween, because it's the easiest to throw together! Take our Wendy Bodysuit, for example, the mocha color is perfect for a good lion costume! But we also have her in black for all you basic black cats out there (we've all done it!)! Luckily faux fur is something you can wear any day of the week, so find a cardigan like this one from Show Me Your Mumu with a faux fur trim (similar cardi is linked), or go all out with a fully furry coat! To keep with the lion theme, you want to go with a good winter white or cream pair of pants like these culotte style ones from American Eagle and pair with a high ankle bootie in burgandy or black! We're obsessed with the culotte/boot trend this season! But if you're still not on board, skinny jeans with a pair of taupe boots will give just the same effect! If you want to step up the Halloween game, hair and makeup is the most important part of finishing this look off! Take Sivan Ayla's halloween makeup tutorial and you'll definitely be looking the part! 'growl' Shop the Look:
