DIY last minute Halloween costumes

FashionLucy LopezComment

I can honestly say that one of my favorite parts of Halloween is trying to figure out what to do for a costume . My goal is always to only buy one or two accessories if needed. I've always been a do-it-yourself girl when it comes to Halloween. And I promise it's not that hard to be creative! You can do a lot more than you think with just what's in your closet! 

70s BOHO CHIC

This year, my new felt hat (that I haven't taken off in about a week) inspired me to be a 70s girl. Basically, all you need to do is pair your summery boho pieces, with a hat or a flower crown, and some boots and you're good to go. I came up with two different outfits for this "costume" and realized, with the 70s trend in stores everywhere, this would be super easy to recreate and wear some of these pieces again. It's also a great way to give your favorite summer dress one last round before you store her away for winter. You'll definitely see my take on this look up on my Instagram tomorrow! 

You could totally swap out over the knee boots for a pair of fringe booties and the hat for a flower crown. You could even do a pair of flare jeans. Cater it to your closet!

AN ODE TO THE 90s

One of the best decade costumes, in my opinion, is a 90s girl. I didn't do this simple because I'm going to a 90s party soon, but it's so easy!  Grab a slip dress and layer a tshirt underneath, choker, flannel and some combat boots or converse and volia- you've got a grunge glam look done in five minutes.

Want another easy closet look? Just swap out the dress for a band tee and ripped jeans. And if it's extra chilly where you are, put on a leather jacket instead!

FEELIN' VAMPY

Another super idea is to be a vampire, and let the makeup do the talking. For this just wear all you have to do is wear all black and find some fingerless lace gloves and a pair of fangs from Party City and you're good to go.

If you're in an edgier mood, my second outfit choice would be leather leggings, a black satin cami and a black duster coat or leather jacket.

I'm hoping you're not so stuck with a costume now. Happy hunting in your closet and happy Halloween!
