Chic & Easy Halloween Costume Ideas

Don’t forget about these stylish and versatile costumes

I’ve always loved Halloween and dressing up but the grown-up life can get in the way of planning costumes in advance. If you’re looking for some easy Halloween costume ideas, here are a few of my favorites.


Mimes are classic, mysterious, and can be sort of creepy. The great thing about this costume is the chance to make it completely your own. Your makeup can be as subtle or as extreme as you want. Do you want to be chic, sexy, or scary? A few essential items paired with some of your wardrobe staples make this versatile option is the perfect go-to for any Halloween soiree.

Wednesday Addams

Oh, Wednesday… she’s artistic, sadistic and sweet. It doesn’t take much to pull together your own variation of Wednesday Addams. It’s very likely that you have most of everything you need to make this one work for you, especially if you’re on a budget.


Black Cat

Being the cat lover that I am, I don’t care how played out people think it is. The black cat costume will always be in style and just like everything else in this post you can dress it up or down as much as you want!


I have always wanted to try the Waldo costume but I just haven’t gotten around to it. One of these years I’ll be sure to take some tips from @missalannis. This cozy looking, laid-back look makes me want to curl up with a book and mug full of hot cocoa.

Now that I’m thinking about Halloween costumes I have so many good ideas that would require more time to put together. I just finished binge-watching the show Riverdale and would love to dress up as a Riverdale cheerleader. What are your costume plans for Halloween this year?
