Halloween Costume Ideas

Halloween Costume Ideas

Written by The Strategy

It’s that time of year again. Time to start sharing Halloween Costume Ideas.

We love Halloween. Like, almost an unhealthy affinity for a holiday meant to excite small children. Our costumes are decided November 1st, for the following year, and our Pinterest home feed is filled with Halloween-related content from September 1st – sure that’s the algorithm, but still.

While we do enjoy dressing up, we still cringe at the thought of a ‘sexy nurse’ costume made of fall-apart fabric and packaged in a plastic baggy. Not only is it $65 and up for a wear-it-once costume, but it also breaks our heart to throw so much waste away after just one use. So this year, instead of shopping the aisles of Spirit Halloween, we’re opting for costumes made with pieces we most certainly will wear again.

The A (New) Gossip Girl

We lived for the costumes of this (very short seasoned) reboot. To achieve the looks of the Upper East Sides most fashionable elite, we’re thinking blazers and button-ups with bike shorts, paired with a boot. Heck, you don’t even have to wear this look on Halloween. You can wear it tomorrow to the grocery store.

EACH X OTHER Pleated poplin shirt
All Access Center Stage Bike Shorts
Schutz Maryana knee-length boots

Coyote Ugly

Full disclosure – this 90s movie still has one of our favourite soundtracks of all-time, with a heavy dose of Leanne Rhymes. While the cast’s full-on ensembles aren’t something we see ourselves wearing everyday, individual pieces are so right now, thanks to one, Bella Hadid. Leather pants? Yes. Crop tops? Please. Denim? 100%. Bonus points at the costume contest if you can wrangle 4 others to join you for a group costume.

Paris Hilton & Nicole Richie Circa The Simple Life

While Von Dutch hats may be taking their time coming back into style (we’re not sad about this), Juicy Couture had a resurgence, as Ugg boots really never went away. With a Venti Starbucks in hand, may we suggest you and your bestie don your biggest sunglasses and comfiest tracksuits, and make everyone at the Halloween party jealous.
