You Already Own it, so Use it for Your Costume!
There’s no reason to stress over going out to buy a Halloween costume this season. Embrace your individuality and create something unique using pieces you might already have in your wardrobe. We picked out our five favorite essentials for last minute DIY’s and we promise, you can do a whole lot with just a few pieces.
White Button Down Shirt
There are so many things that you can do with this essential, but it’s all about how you do it. Tuck it into a full black skirt and pair it with red accessories to portray Mary Poppins, or if it’s oversized, grab a broom, throw on some wayfarers, and channel your inner Tom Cruise, a la Risky Business.
Use your imagination with this simple piece. Make yourself some wings and fly around as the most fashionable bat there is. Want something a bit more dramatic? Craft together a tutu and add some dramatic makeup for a lasting impression as Black Swan. BONUS: pair this with your versatile white button down and go as Wednesday Addams.
Denim Button Down Shirt
The chambray shirt can go from the office to a Halloween party with the right accessories. A red bandana or scarf will transform you into the empowering Rosie the Riveter. 1940’s not your style? Throw on a simple red vest with some aviator sunnies and be the coolest hoverboard-riding teen there is, Marty McFly.
Striped ShirtWith this staple, you can be as simple as a mime or sail the seven seas as the pirate you always dreamed of being with the addition of an eyepatch. If you’re feeling a little more risky, grab a friend because Bonnie and Clyde is the way to go.
If you don’t have one of these, this is just the perfect excuse to buy one! Go as the ever elusive Carmen Sandiego you loved as a child or as everybody’s favorite, clumsy character- Inspector Gadget. Let your scandalous side shine for a day and go as Olivia Pope, but only if you have a handy glass of wine with you.
Now that you’ve given our guide a look, it’s time to let the creativity flow. Bonus: all of these costumes go perfectly with a few Dosha Pops.
