Halloween: Chic Recycled Costume Ideas!

Is everyone else as excited for Halloween as we are? If you’re still on the hunt for your costume, you’re in luck- we’ve already done all the hard work for you! Check out these fun and fashionable Halloween ensembles that will be the hit of the party (or the neighbors if you’re taking a little one Trick or Treating 🙂 )

 

Carmen Sandiego

Trench- Lafayette 148 sz m $48

Black Sweater Dress (Underneath)- Cabi sz S $40

Brown Boots- Pappagal sz 6.5 $24

Transform into the elusive thief Carmen Sandiego with a simple red trench coat and boots. Add the hat for some mystery, and you’re off! Now where in the world will you go?!

Penny Lane

Fuzzy Coat- Lucent sz S/M $80

Cropped Tie Blouse- Boho Chic sz S $28

Flare Jeans- Seven for all Mankind sz 26 $80

Clogs- Colin Stuart sz 7.5

Channel your inner free-spirited music lover by dressing up as Penny Lane from Almost Famous. All you need is a crop top, bellbottoms, and a great fluffy collared coat like this one by Lucent! Add some tinted glasses and you’re ready to hop on that tour bus.

Cleopatra

Black Dress- MSK sz S $20

White Scarf- Jones NY $5

Chain Belt- Anne Klein $28

Bib Necklace- $176

Heels- Beverly Feldman sz 8 $48

If you want to go the more classic route, Cleopatra is an oldie but goodie! We wrapped a pashmina style scarf around a simple black maxi dress for a chicer look than draping yourself in an old white bed sheet. And the necklace? This is one you definitely need to see in person – fabulously fit for an Egyptian princess!

Willy Wonka

Velvet Blazer- D &C0 sz S/M $28

Blouse- Perse sz 8 $68

Bubble Skirt- San & Soni Co sz XS $51

Bowler Hat- Bollman sz M $36

Velvet Wedges- Dolce & Gabbana sz 9.5 $120

This is our take on a “chic” Willy Wonka. We ditched the dowdy khacki’s for a quirky little bubble skirt and D&G wedges. Don’t forget your everlasting gobstoppers and golden tickets! *Oompa Loompas not included.

Have some other great costume ideas? Come by the store and we’ll help you put it together!

Love,

The Girls at Designer Renaissance
