Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

Calling all fellow procrastinators, this post is for you.

If you’re anything like me, the very thought of pulling together a Halloween costume is enough to scare you. And as a result, you wait until the last possible second to decide on your hallowed holiday ensemble. Am I right?

So, that begs the question:
Dafuq are you going to wear?

No? Nothing? Me neither.

So, here’s a few quick-and-easy finds from some of my favorite online retailers (Topshop, ASOS and NasyGal) that’ll take the guesswork — and virtually all effort – out of concocting your costume.

Step 1: Add to cart. / Step 2: Incorporate variety from your everyday wardrobe. / Step 3: Top it off with a little creativity (and a bold red lip for good measure). Voila, my friends. You’re ready for the hallowed holiday!

Nordstrom has a few unexpected gems, too, like this awesome number.

Fourth of July is, quite literally, just around the corner. Crazy, right? I’d ask what your plans are, but first — a more pressing question: What the hell are you going to wear?
