But who said you have to splurge on a one-time outfit? Clothes Mentor offers an array of women's clothing items that can be transformed into spook-tacular Halloween costumes. Let's dive into some fun costume ideas and how to style them using Clothes Mentor finds.
1. Classic Witch: A classic witch costume never goes out of style, and you can easily create it with items from your closet or Clothes Mentor. Start with a black maxi dress or skirt, a witch's hat, and a black cardigan or cape. Add a broomstick as an accessory, and you're ready to cast some spells.
Styling Tip: Incorporate black tights, lace-up boots, and dramatic dark makeup for that enchanting witchy look.
2. Vampire Vixen: Embrace your inner vampire with a sultry and sophisticated outfit. Look for a long, dark gown or a fitted black dress at Clothes Mentor. Pair it with a choker, vampire fangs, and dark, mysterious makeup.
Styling Tip: Opt for elegant gloves, fake blood, and a dramatic side-parted hairstyle to complete the look.
3. Retro Pin-Up Zombie: Take a twist on the classic pin-up girl look by turning it into a zombie costume. Find a vintage-inspired dress or skirt at Clothes Mentor, and then distress it with tears, fake blood, and dirt. Add a floral headband, pearl jewelry, and zombified makeup.
Styling Tip: Tease your hair for that retro voluminous look, and paint your nails with a gory touch.
4. Fortune Teller: Channel your inner mystic with a fortune teller costume. Look for a long, flowy skirt or a bohemian-style dress at Clothes Mentor. Accessorize with scarves, bangles, and a crystal ball (or a glass globe).
Styling Tip: Create smoky, mysterious makeup, and wear your hair in loose, wavy curls for an authentic fortune teller look.
5. Flapper Ghost: Combine the elegance of the Roaring Twenties with the spookiness of Halloween. Search for a flapper-style dress with fringe or sequins at Clothes Mentor. Accessorize with a feathered headband and a long strand of pearls.
Styling Tip: Add a sheer shawl or cape for an ethereal touch, and consider using white or silver body paint for a ghostly appearance.
6. DIY Scarecrow: For a cute and quirky costume, turn yourself into a scarecrow. Find a plaid shirt, denim overalls, and a floppy hat at Clothes Mentor. Use makeup to create stitched-on features, and carry around a few pieces of straw or hay.
Styling Tip: Pair with brown boots and paint freckles on your cheeks for an adorable scarecrow look.
