Did you forget about Halloween this year? Did you also get invited to a last minute party tonight? Here are a few costume ideas made up of items you probably already have in your closet!
Let’s begin with DESI, our staple black oxford, that goes with everything!
Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down! Start off this look with an essential white button down shirt tucked into a flowy black skirt paired with black tights. Add a red bowtie and a classic derby hat to finish off the look. In true Mary Poppins fashion, you wouldn’t leave the house without your staple umbrella, but please don’t try to fly with this one.

When we think of Wednesday Addams, we think of Halloween. How could we create a list of costumes without including the girl who represents Halloween. We start this look with a classic crewneck, short-sleeved black dress and pair it with black knee high socks. For the added white collar detail, we found this perfect collar dickie/necklace you can place inside the neck of the dress. Pigtail braids are a must with this look! Oh no, we’re already snapping and humming the song.

Has it been a long week? Are you not interested in small talking everyone up at the party? Well, good news, you don’t have to when you’re a mime! Start this look with black pants and a black and white horizontal striped shirt. Add a bowler hat and white gloves and you’re ready to go. Don’t forget the white cream face makeup to get that classic Mime look.

Next is DELLA, everyone’s favorite tall boot, and in a brand new color!
Have you always dreamed of being Amelia Earhart? Well, now’s your chance! Keep it simple with khaki skinny pants or leggings tucked into DELLA with a plain white shirt and an aviator jacket. Add a beige scarf to imagine blowing in the wind while you’re in your imaginary Biplane for the evening. Bring those aviator glasses with you, just so everyone knows you mean business.

If you’re like us, then you’ve seen the Wonder Woman movie this year; and it was a serious dose of girl power that we are loving! For this outfit, we are blending a combo of the latest Wonder Woman costume with the classic. You thought you wouldn’t be pulling out a swimsuit in late October, but now’s your chance! Pair a red swimsuit with a short blue skirt (or even a jean skirt) for a classic Wonder Woman color scheme, yet with our DELLA boots that are ideal for Gal Gadot’s style. Grab a large gold bangle for each wrist and a gold headband for her headpiece. Make sure to wear the headband underneath your hair so you create the same look. (Feel free to cut a star out of red paper and double stick tape it to the headband to look even more authentic.)

Channel your inner Sherlock Holmes with this number. We are starting off with simple black leggings tucked into DELLA and a plain black top. Throw on a khaki trench coat and a wide brim hat for a true detective look. Add oversized sunglasses so no one knows what you’re up to, and grab a magnifying glass if you really want to go all out!
