A little black dress or a white button-up shirt is the only signature item you need this Halloween – An effortless, cheap and classy costume that you can put together in minutes!


Halloween is just days away, no costume? Have no fear, you still have time.

Whether you need a first choice outfit, a backup plan if your online order is a shot in the dark, or a potential outfit idea in case one of your crazy friends decides to wing it and asks you to go out last minute. Whatever the reason, these costume ideas will create an authentic, inexpensive costume that takes minutes to put together; no craft glue, paint, or manual labor needed…I promise! These costume ideas are built around one signature item you are almost guaranteed to have stashed away in your closet; easy!

Halloween can sometimes be a drag when it comes to costumes. You may have no time to search online or go to the Halloween stores, be on a tight budget, or have absolutely no idea what your friends have in mind and don’t want to spend $50 (£30) on an outfit you could possibly never wear! Or, maybe you searched online, went to the Halloween store, tried on some outfits, and didn’t like any. I have your solution and it’s simple; a white button-up shirt, or a little black dress.

That shirt you wore once for the last interview you had? This is the forefront of your Halloween costume. Sound crazy? Watch this video on how to turn that plain white button down into a creative Halloween salvage.

Why not try a Sassy School girl, 80s themed Risky Business, Mary Poppins, and Mia Wallace (Pulp Fiction).

The second wardrobe standby is the signature little black dress. This timeless, elegant item isn’t only your best friend on last minute nights out when you haven’t been shopping; it can also become the ultimate, versatile Halloween recovery.

Dress it up with Holly Golightly (Breakfast at Tiffany’s), Parking Rituals, Where’s Waldo, Mary Kate Olson, and Minnie Mouse.

With just over 48 hours until Halloween, button down that shirt, or zip up that dress into what will be the best last minute put-together of the night! Your costume catastrophe is solved, so take a deep breath, choose an outfit, and most importantly Keep Calm and Look Amazing.
