Hey, guys and ghouls!! Halloween is just around the corner, and if you're anything like us, you're probably scrambling for that perfect costume. But guess what? You don't have to splurge on a brand-new outfit! Your closet is a treasure trove of trendy fashion that can easily be transformed into fabulous Halloween costumes!

Channel Your Inner Barbie Girl

If you have a girly pink dress, you're halfway to becoming Barbie for the night. Add some pink or white accessories, like a pearl necklace or a cute clutch, and you're all set. Don't forget the pink heels!

Oppenheimer Chic

Not exactly a Barbie girl? No worries! For a moodier, darker look, why not go with the Barbie movie antithesis: Oppenheimer?! A black midi dress, some vintage glasses, and a thoughtful expression are all you need. It's a conversation starter, for sure!



Scarecrow Style

Have a plaid dress you love? Pair it with a straw hat and some rustic booties, and you've got a chic scarecrow look. This is a great way to repurpose your summer and fall boutique dresses for Halloween.

Witchy Vibes

Got a little black dress hanging in your closet? Perfect! Pair it with a witch hat and some dark makeup, and voila! You've got yourself a classic witch costume. Add some black boots and a broomstick, and you're ready to cast spells all night long!

Cowgirl Up

If you own a denim or chambray dress, you're in luck! Add some cowboy boots and a wide brim hat, and you're a cowgirl ready to lasso some hearts. This look is not only cute but also super comfortable for a night of trick-or-treating or dancing!

Wednesday Addams

A flattering black dress can easily be turned into a Wednesday Addams costume. Add some black tights and a white collar, and you're the spitting image of this iconic character.

Sandy from Grease

If you have a faux leather jacket, particularly in the moto style, and leggings, you're all set to be Sandy from Grease! Add some fiery red lipstick and heels, and you're ready to hand jive all night long!


Maybe you're more into high seas and swashbuckling pirates? Well, you're in luck! All you need for this is a flowy blouse, black faux leather leggings or jeans and eye patch! You could also add a sword and large hoop earrings just for a bit of flare. This look is sure to create a spot on pirate look while also looking pretty stylish. It's a win win in our book! 

Mean Girls Halloween

Be a Mouse, Duh!

You didn’t think we would leave out this gem of a costume, did you?! All you need for this is a short frilly black dress, a pink ribbon for a waist sash, and the most crucial part: mouse ears! Now, when anyone asks what you are, just point to your ears and say, “I’m a mouse. Duh!”.

So, there you have it, ladies! Your closet is full of potential Halloween costumes, just waiting to be discovered! With a little creativity, you can easily repurpose your favorite boutique dresses and accessories for a night of spooky fun.
