Halloween; the one day out of the year that you can dress however you want, and get away with it. Ever since I was little, my parents never allowed me to wear those Halloween costumes that anyone and everyone goes to buy at your average-joe party store. I’m still not sure if it was the cheap material or high prices that made my parents feel this way but LUCKILY, I have a very crafty mom who can make anything something special. I must admit, I had some of the most amazing costumes as a kid.
As for me, I am not the craftiest in terms of sewing and actually building a costume from scratch. Over the past few years, I have built my costumes with statement pieces I either had in my closet or pieces seen online. Halloween for me is about building and elevating essentials while throwing in 1-2 statement pieces, that can still be worn time and time again. Its all about looking the part and doing a killer job of it. Being able to transform those leather pants into a cat woman suit and a month later, wear them to class with sneakers and simple crewneck. When looking for the perfect Halloween costume, look for main pieces that can be re-worn just styled in a totally different way. I have attached a variety of ideas down below to elevate simple costumes and re-wear them long after the occasion.CLICK HERE to shop Halloween 2018 costumes.
