3 easy halloween costumes you already have in your closet









When it comes to Halloween, I procrastinate till the very last minute. Every. Single. Year. I'm that girl who runs out to the store (after everything has been picked through) an hour before a party, frantically searching for something (anything) to throw together. This year I was excited to find that putting together three different costumes with clothes I already owned was a cinch. Here's how I did it:

1.
What you have: 
Anything polka dot -- dress/skirt/even pants (tip: layer different sizes to achieve a cartoony look)
+ a collared shirt 
+ shiny shoes/polka dot shoes/red shoes/gold shoes

What you need:
Cartoon eyelashes (F21 has a set of 3 for $4.80)

= Minnie Mouse

2.
What you have:
White button down
+ white pants
+ black boots

What you need:
A black hat (unless you already own one)
+ eyelashes (put one set over one eye -- top and bottom lash)

= A Clockwork Orange

3.
What you have:
Motorcycle jacket
+ any tee with skulls/american flags/eagles
+ leather pants
+ aviators

What you need:
A helmet (optional, not pictured)
+ temporary tattoos (or real -- optional, not pictured)

= Biker Chick (think Sons of Anarchy, but more girly)

1 {F21 blouse, dress + eyelashes; Marc by Marc Jacobs shoes (old); Minnie ears via the Disney store}
2 {Calvin Klein top via Marshalls; Gap pants; Coach boots (old); random hat; F21 eyelashes}
3 {Asos jacket (seen here + here); H&M top (old); Member's Only leggings (old); Coach boots (old); Ray Bans}
