In case you didn’t get enough selfies yesterday, let’s round out today with a few more in the form of easy costumes I found in my closet.
The black pants and striped shirt are too cliche. Change things up with striped anything and lots of accents. Any classy looking hat will do, even if it’s not a beret! Just add an oversized bag and trench and some surly looks-you’ll be good to go.
The Classics: Holly Golightly
You can never go wrong with the classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s look. All you need is a little black dress, some pearls, and an up-do. My jewelry is buried in storage so I just went without. Same goes for gloves so I substituted with black stockings. Accent with winged eyeliner and a rolled up sheet up piece of paper for a cigarette.
The Classics: Marilyn Monroe
Again, can you ever go wrong with Marilyn Monroe? It’s easy to do, red lipstick, dark mascara, a drawn on mole and you’re done. When curling your hair for this look, make sure to turn the curler towards the front to get her signature curl. Finish with a white dress and a pout and you’re ready to go.
This one is a reference to a friend trying to compliment the dress and finally just telling me that I looked like a barcode and then walking away. I will never let him live it down and Halloween seems like as good a time as any to celebrate that.
Whatever you choose to do, good luck with your costume. I hope you’re inspired to reuse what you already have. Share your best #closetcostume on Instagram so I can see someone’s face other than my own!
