Quick + Cute Halloween Costumes

It’s just a few weeks until Halloween, so you’d better start getting your costume together! I’ve noticed costumes tend to vary in intensity and effort, so I tried to clump them into five distinct groups to best help you and your level of commitment to your costume this year.

Festive, but Not a Costume

You like Halloween and you’re going to wear something related to the holiday, but it won’t be a costume. Here are some of my favorite graphic tees and festive accessories that will let you blend in at parties without feeling like you’re trying too much.


The classic “hot (insert animal here)” is a costume popularized by many teen movies, but it’s oh so easy. Throw on some ears, maybe add a little something extra to your makeup, and you’re golden.


Another fairly easy costume, the skeleton involves little more than you wearing a skeleton shirt, dress, or two piece set. I personally think this is a great option for those of us in colder climates – you get a great costume and you’re still covered and warm. Face makeup optional!

Black Outfit + Killer Makeup

If you want to show off the skills you’ve learned through watching YouTube makeup tutorials, this is the costume choice for you. Wear a cute black outfit and let the makeup do the rest. Options include deer, skeletons, dead brides, horror makeup, mermaids, anything and everything you can find on the internet!

Complete Costumes

You would rather get everything in one package, and I respect that. Here are some of my favorite one-stop costumes from this year!



Happy (almost) Halloween! What are you dressing up as??

    These pics are all so fun! I love the casual outfits/costumes/T-shirts that you can wear all Halloween season!


    Thanks for all of the great ideas! I’ll admit, I haven’t thought about what I’m going to be this year! I work early the next morning, so I think I only need to figure out a work-appropriate outfit to wear that morning..


    Cute! I haven’t decided what I’m going to be so maybe these will spark some ideas! I’m trying to convince the boyfriend to do a couple costume this year 😂🙈
