PSA: This blog post is not for those who drive over to the pop-up Halloween store and buy the first costume in-a-bag they see. Actually, we take that back. We’re here to convert you over to the dark side of DIY costumes. *Evil laugh*
Although there is absolutely nothing wrong with buying a costume, it’s so much more fun to create something chic using every day separates and adding in a few finishing touches. Plus, with a store bought costume, you run the risk of looking like everyone else, which is not what we’re trying to do here!
Below we’ve put together three looks using a few of our favorite fall separates from ShoeDazzle.
Um, we know Coachella was six months ago… but why not make a costume out of it? We based this look around the Midi Fringe Skirt which is giving us bohemian glam vibes. Paired with an airy, off the shoulder top and the Nella pumps work perfectly. The finishing touch of this costume was the DIY flower crown we put together. We found the faux flowers at an arts and crafts store, and weaved two separate colored flower vines together to get the perfect mixed bouquet style headpiece. The seventies called and they said you look fierce.
The Cuff Sleeve Drawstring Jumpsuit is one of the most versatile fall pieces you’ll find. You can wear it to work, out for drinks, or to brunch with the girls; the options are endless, and it’s perfect for dressing up or down. This jumpsuit is also a great Halloween costume starting point for those of us who want to look particularly put together. We paired it with a pair of aviators and a store bought hat. The finishing touch of this look is the shoes. The Sanae pumps really make this costume pop off. You’ll have them begging you to arrest them all night long. 😉
It’s cold out on Halloween night, so we give our utmost props to those that choose to be scantily clad on Halloween. We plan on being warm and cozy in the Plaid Shirt Paired with the Distressed Moto Skinny Jeans and the knee high Nikka boots, it’s a simple yet adorable costume. Top off your look with a floppy hat, and you’re ready to take on Halloween night. Now, if you only had a brain. 😉
