last-minute halloween costumes

Halloween is just around the corner (T-3 days)! And if you are anything like us, every year has you scrambling last minute for a Halloween costume. Seeing as you’ll only wear it once, who really wants to spend a lot (if any) money?

We’ve each come up with a quick and easy idea using what you have in your closet but still helping you look fun, stylish, and classy (forget the trashy nurse).

 Casey: Last year, my hubs and I were looking for a last-minute original and cute costume. Considering menswear-inspired clothing was, and still is, all the rage, Charlie Chaplin fit the bill. For men, wear a dark suit, white collared shirt and a black skinny tie. For women, wear loose black pants and a white buttoned-up shirt. Finally, don’t forget your bowler hat and mustache! Ladies, hot red lips are great for spicing up the outfit.

Natalie: I’m obsessed with Mad Men, and it’s an easy look to re-create for Halloween. For men, wear your most tailored suit with a skinny tie, slick your hair to the side, and add a pocket square. For women, wear your favorite shirtdress or pencil skirt and blouse, bright lipstick, and pin curls in your hair to channel Joan, Peggy, or Betty.
