5 Halloween Looks You Can Recreate With Your Current Wardrobe

One of the best things this Fall besides the cooling weather is the occasion that allows us to get all silly, spooky, and creative with our looks and outfits. Yes! That's right! We're talking about Halloween. 

Young and old, there's always something about trick-or-treating that makes us take the extra effort to come up with our own costumes and spook the heck out of everyone. But sometimes, we get so busy with school or work that we simply don't have the time to prep up, which makes 'adulting' a little bit disappointing. Still, who said that you have to give up on your Halloween plans completely? 

If you find yourself left with no time to come up with an awesome Halloween costume, here are some amazing and badass looks you can try with pieces straight from your closet! 


 Marvel's Jessica Jones

From the comics to the Marvel TV universe, Jessica Jones is a superhero-turned-private investigator who deals with cases involving people with remarkable abilities in New York City. Her no-nonsense attitude and vibe that shouts 200% girl power is reflected in her signature all-black outfit that's easy to recreate with your wardrobe staples. Just grab your black pieces, your favourite denims, that hardcore attitude, and that's your Halloween look done!

One of the most memorable characters from a childhood classic, Velma was the epitome of geek chic back in the 90s. Just in time for Fall, take out your orange pullover, a red skirt, knee-high socks, Mary Janes, and some hipster specs to get you set with the rest of the Scooby gang for some mystery solving.

Wednesday Addams from the Addams Family

Another cartoon favourite from the 90s, one of the easiest, yet Halloween-perfect looks, is Wednesday Addams. Go for a collared LBD or pair up your black dress with a white button-down, put on black leggings and black shoes, channel her signature braids, and you are all set! You can also carry around a skull prop to add some extra spooks! 

Fem! Marty Mcfly from Back To The Future

The most amazing thing about Halloween -- and 2016 in general -- is that people are getting more and more open to diversity. Fem! (or feminine gender-bender) cosplay has been around in the geek scene for quite some time now, but it's still fascinating how our favourite male characters are portrayed and reinvented, girl-power style! 

Take this Marty Mcfly look for example, where you can show your love for 80's fashion by layering shirts, button downs, varsity jackets, and pairing it up with denims, sneakers, and aviator sunnies. Just make sure you park your DeLorean where Biff can't find it, okay?

Want to go a little mainstream? Join the rest of the world and fall in love all over again with this Netflix original-turned-phenomenon! The main gal Eleven sports a simple ensemble in one of the most memorable scenes in the entire series and it's so easy to copy! Look up your closet for a pink dress, a blue hoodie, high socks, and simple sneaks to get the look and you also get yourself a reason to munch on a box of waffles (for prop purposes, of course *wink*).
