Double toil and WHAT TO WEAR trouble
Hello #CABabes. And welcome to another spooooooooktacular style guide. It's about to be one of our favorite holidays - and no not the release of the Pumpkin Spiced Latte. It's about to be Halloween! And with all of us moms, grandmas and general #bossbabes getting our homes and little ones ready, it's easy to forget that - come the 31st - we'll be needing a costume as well. But have no fear! We've put together the easiest, most last-minute-approved, DIY Halloween costumes guide to get you looking and feeling eeeerily fabulous!
All caught up
Planning on hosting the neighborhood get-together? Volunteered to take the entire Girl Scouts troupe trick-or-treating? We've got you!
Getting in the SPIRIT - so to say - is as easy as throw it on while you're walking out the door! Our local party supply has a host of these creepy capes, which look extra vampy when paired with a dark lip and a fall dress. Pair your DIY Halloween costumes look with a pair of fishnet tights and black booties and you'll have an original and festive Halloween-approved concoction!
Feeling Deja Boo?
There's something nostalgic about a cat or witch costume. They're also our favorite go-tos for the woman on-the-run this season. We picked up this boa-trimmed witches hat and adorable cat ear headband from a costume shop in a pinch! Pair your iconic costume staples with an all-black ensemble for the witch, or any feline or cheetah print dress for the cat. They're both classic looks you can use over and over again!
And if you're feeling a little extra, like we were, grab a dramatic mesh cape or a matching cat tail for a complete DIY Halloween costume.
Getting witch Crafty
These last DIY Halloween costumes are for the witchcraftiest of all! If you have a specific era or theme in mind, it's not too difficult to turn your favorite summer dress or formalwear party look into a trendy costume.
Grab your favorite paisley or flower print dress, pick up a 60s party pack (typically complete with colored glasses and peace sign necklace) and dust off your fringe to get this one-of-a-kind hippie look, DIY Halloween costumes style.
And our favorite DIY Halloween costume comes courtesy of the legend herself, Ms. Audrey Hepburn. Grab your favorite floor-length LBD and let your Hollywood diva take over! By completing the look with a pair of black sunglasses, a tiara, an over-sized pearl necklace and gloves, you'll have a glamorous Breakfast at Tiffany's look ready to take on the costume contests!
