by Ursula Sela, Copy Team Lead

Halloween is on its way and with it, inevitably, a whole host of worries: how much work do I need to put into planning my outfit? Do I really need to break the bank on something I’ll never wear again? What if I make loads of effort and look like I’ve gone overboard when I arrive at the party? We’ve definitely all been there…

​​​​​​​Well, rest assured, we’re here to set your mind at ease with the costume Halloween ideas that are totally spook-tacular and include styles you can wear again when the big day is over (just maybe not all in one go 😉). From matching Halloween costumes for couples and besties to fail-safe Halloween costume ideas for women, we’ve got all the inspiration you need in time for fright night. Ready? Let’s go…

Mean girls costume halloween idea

1. On Wednesday’s, We Wear Pink

This one’s for all those besties out there who are after cute costumes for Halloween that match up. After all, if you’re going out together, you may as well do it in style by keeping it coordinated, right? And we’re looking to Mean Girls for outfit inspo…

​​​​​​​Instead of dressing up for Halloween Cady-Heron style (in our eyes, not a faux pas but just much more effort!), make your best friend Halloween costumes pink and channel that Mean Girl’s sass for the evening. All you’ll need is some pink clothing - whether it’s a cute mini dress or a cardigan, cami and mini skirt combo (which they’re so well known for) - and the perfect pair of pink shoes. Now that’s what we would call ‘so fetch’.

Wednesday Adams as an easy costume idea for halloween

2. The Addam’s Family…But Make It Fashion

We know it’s been done before so many times, but we just had to recommend this one: Wednesday Addams. This look definitely fits in the ‘easy costumes for Halloween’ category as it needs next-to-no prep ahead of time. Plus, you’ll be able to enjoy wearing all the pieces you got for it in the months to come.

​​​​​​​First, find yourself a stylish little black dress or an all-black outfit combo you feel comfortable in. If possible, get one with a white collar for the full effect, but if that’s too much effort then go without- it’s the next step that’s key, after all: double braids. It’ll be hard to become everyone’s favourite goth girl without this step, but once you’ve perfected your parting and your plaits, you’re good to go. Simple, right?

3. Steal Sabrina’s Style

Netflix’s ‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ has become a cult favourite to many since its release in 2018, and one of the reasons for this is because of its iconic fashion. Stick to a red and black colour palette for your outfit, we recommend our Halloween dresses or Halloween tops for this, with a deep red lip to finish. And, of course, you wouldn’t be Sabrina without a classic headband (which, FYI are totally on-trend at the moment). Now that’s a spellbindingly cool costume for Halloween (sorry, we couldn’t help it).

4. Royally Dressed Up

Nowadays, Halloween isn’t just about scaring but also about having a bit of fun with your look, and if you’re after an easy costume for Halloween that is also a bit more sophisticated than your usual style, we recommend going for a costume inspired by Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. A fashion icon with impeccable taste, she’s even been spotted wearing some of our shoes
. So how could we not include her in our round up? To nail her look, we suggest going for a midi dress or a wrap dress and pairing it with a super-chic hat. To finish, go for a statement brooch and, of course, a classic pair of court shoes.
