5 Halloween Costume Ideas With Clothes Already In Your Closet


by Kristin Glenn October 21, 2014

HALLOWEEN.

The holiday that always seems to creep up out of nowhere.  If you're like me, you suddenly find yourself without a costume, idea, or time to thrift for something epic. Which is usually OK, until you show up to a sweet costume party wishing you'd put in even an iota of effort. Because dressing up is fun and doing it well is the best gift you can bring to a party.

This year -- to help us all -- I put together five pretty simple costumes using some of the more popular Seamly.co pieces and other stuff that's either already in your closet, or is easy to thrift or borrow. Of course, I don't want to be the only one at the party in full costume, so pretty please share any Seamly.co Halloween photos using the #seamlyco tag on Instagram! And if you've got ideas, post them in the comments section below.  

 

HERE WE GO...

 


WHAT YOU'LL NEED


No Sweat Pants Vallynne Tank gloves, red scarf, suspenders  


WHAT YOU'LL NEED


Deep Plum Wrapped Cardigan boots, corset, and a scarf for the headwrap This might be my favorite. The corset goes over the Wrapped Cardigan, and layers of necklaces + an eye patch would really crank this up a notch. Leggings or pantyhose would be great for cold weather!  


WHAT YOU'LL NEED


Black Basic Maxi Dress The key to the Breakfast at Tiffany's costume is to turn the Basic Maxi Dress around backwards, and then add a chunky necklace. Black gloves and a little tiara-like hairpiece would make this perfection.  


WHAT YOU'LL NEED


Ivory Summer Wrap belt (or rope) and a headpiece Bonus items: gold arm cuffs and Sseko sandals!  


WHAT YOU'LL NEED


Black Convertible Pantsuit OK, so this one could use a little help. Like a black bomber jacket, open toe heels, red lips. I pictured Hanna's styling from Gold Polka Dots when I originally came up with this (check out outfit 3 on her blog). To tighten the legs up, I just tied a knot around the bottom of each pant leg!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
