Halloween ’19: Boo-tiful last minute style ideas
With only 2 weeks left until the most spooktacular day of the year, it’s about the right time for many people to realise that they don’t have an outfit prepped yet. It’s okay – we’ve all been there. But no one wants to be that person who digs out the same old outfit to wear every single year, or throws on a white sheet and says ‘I’m a ghost’. On the flipside, no one wants to fork out an obscene amount of money for a costume that they will probably only wear once and then leave in the dark corner of the wardrobe for the rest of time.
Luckily, these aren’t the only options: there are plenty of ideas that are simple, stylish and can easily be pulled off at the last minute. We’ve put together some of our favourites in this post, so take a look and maybe you’ll find the Halloween inspiration that you’ve been looking for!
Cruella De Vil
She’s one of the most famous villains out there, even nearly 60 years after the release of the original film. Fortunately, the iconic style of Cruella De Vil isn’t too difficult at all to pull off: you’ll just need a black dress, a string of pearls, and the biggest fur coat you can find. Dog-owners out there are in luck, as your beloved pet can be the finishing touch to this outfit! (Bonus points if the dog is a dalmatian). If you want to go all out, you can also use hair spray to achieve that half black/half white hair look.

The Devil Is In The Details
This idea simply requires all things red. Team up a red dress with some red lipstick, and then just go crazy with the accessories! Bold red gemstones can range from classic rubies to bold crimson crystals. Top your outfit off with a pair of horns that you can easily buy last-minute online (Amazon Prime is your best friend).

You may decide to go with the opposite approach, although this will be equally simple. For your angel outfit, simply throw on your favourite white dress and go for the winged look: whether that’s winged eyeliner, wing jewellery…or literally a pair of angel wings. Again, Amazon Prime is your best friend.

“What About Breakfast At Tiffany’s?”
An iconic style that can easily be replicated (although that Givenchy dress is truly one of a kind), Audrey Hepburn’s outfit in the opening scene of this film is instantly recognisable. Simply team your favourite LBD with some black elbow-length gloves, pearls and oversized sunglasses and you’re good to go!
Another outfit that continues to be a frequent costume favourite due to its simplicity and style is that of Sandy from Grease. Team up a leather jacket and/or trousers with your favourite hoop earrings and break out the curling wand to achieve that iconic 70’s hairdo! This outfit idea isn’t just limited to the ladies; men simply have to pair a leather jacket with some jeans, and you’re set. Don’t forget the hair gel!
