Simple costume ideas for your night out for Halloween 2019!
When it comes to Halloween, it’s never easy to make a costume selection, particularly if you prefer comfort – something which many adult costumes aren’t created for! Nowadays, for just one night out, thousands of women are spending their hard-earned cash on their outfits, just to make sure they portray a stand-out, recognisable character for their spooky costume. In fact, in recent research by market research analysts, Mintel, Brits will spend an incredible £320 million on everything Halloween-related – that’ll give you the real scare factor this Halloween!
But, choosing a fun, easy and comfortable Halloween outfit doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, there are plenty of relatively low-cost costumes that are perfect for a small budget, so you can spend your money on the more important things! We have outlined our top five costume ideas for a low budget, so you can get organised and look great this Halloween!
The Black Cat costume. A go-to costume idea for many women at Halloween, but there’s a reason for that – it’s easy, low cost, and instantly recognisable. Also, the majority of the outfit you’ll either already have in your wardrobe, and the other parts can be purchased for a small cost, so you’ll certainly get the wear out of all the items purchased!
A simple pair of our Black High Waisted will be the key comfort addition to this costume. In a flattering high waist design, you can add some definition to your look, and paired with a plain black t-shirt with a tie detail will help to add a hint of ‘fashion’ to your look. Pair with the usual suspects for accessories including a black cat eye mask, cat ears and a tail if you want to go all out, to create a purr-fect black cat costume for Halloween 2019!
In memory of the voice actress, Russi Taylor, who voiced Minnie Mouse for more than 30 years, and passed away just a couple of months ago, why not dress up as one of your favourite childhood Disney characters this spooky season!
A simple but effective costume, Minnie Mouse’s red and white polka dot skirt is instantly recognisable, but, depending on what you already have in your wardrobe, her dress can be copied and altered to fit the 21st century. All you’ll need is a red dress, or red skirt and red top, and do a bit of DIY with felt to create small polka dots, and glue to your garment, to create her signature look. A pair of yellow flats will really finish off the look, and add a pair of our Classic White leggings to really get the Minnie Mouse effect!
Grease is one of the best- loved films of all time, and with such an era-defining wardrobe, dressing up as any character from the cult-classic will be a winner. We’ve got to say though, the Sandy 2.0 look is definitely the one that we want (do you see what we did there!), so why not copy the classics and create your own Grease look this Halloween – it’s not scary, but if it’s good enough for Gigi Hadid, it’s good enough for us!
The most recognisable item from Sandy’s look is the skin-tight leggings, but we want to be comfortable on Halloween, so leather pants are definitely a no-go! Why not try recreating the look with a pair of Black High Waisted leggings, paired with a black elastic belt, off the shoulder top, and red heels – our just your favourite pair that you can dance the night away in! Don’t forget the big curls and red lipstick!
Another easy look to recreate, that is a bit more grown up for Halloween, is a Devil. One of the more ‘scarier’ looks, you can really get into the creepy season feeling with this look, and once again is just as easy as all the others to recreate! Our Poppy Red High Waisted leggings are the perfect bright shade for your stereotypical devil look, and paired with a similar red tee, or whatever you can get your hands on, all you need is to go big on the makeup, find a pair of devil horns online, and you’ve got the perfect devil costume for your night out!
If you’d like to try a more modern, Halloween costume favourite, why not try Suicide Squad’s Harley Quinn? Scrap the shorts and fishnets, and make the look 10 times more comfortable with our True Blue High Waisted leggings, the famous Harley Quinn tee, and a pair of chunky black boots – it’s as simple as that! A blue and red dip-dyed wig would perfectly finish off the look, along with an inflatable baseball bat, but if you’re low on budget, there are temporary hair sprays that can change the colour of your hair, as a more cost-effective alternative. Add the Harley Quinn sass, and you’re on to a winner!
