The Perfect Creative & Easy Costumes

Halloween is all about embracing your creativity and having fun. With the holiday happening amidst countless tests and papers in one of the busiest parts of the semester, none of us have time to worry about complicated costumes. Well, fear not! Below are four classic costumes that will save you time and money this Halloween: Blair Waldorf

If you’re still depressed that Gossip Girl ended years ago, this one’s for you. B is all class, so you can toss your naughty schoolgirl outfit once and for all. What you’ll need is a bow-tie blouse, a navy A-line skirt, knee socks, and classic white loafers. Unfortunately you’ll have to find your own Chuck Bass, too.

Wednesday Addams

We all have our Wednesday moments, right? Embrace your darker side this Halloween as this old-school TV icon. Throw your hair in two simple braids, gather a black long sleeve dress and a shirt with a white collar to go underneath. Ta-da! You probably won’t have to buy a single thing for this easy costume.

Rosie the Riveter

Who says Halloween has to be scary? Paying homage to the iconic figure of girl power is the perfect way to feel good about your costume. Rosie the Riveter is a surprisingly simple costume to find in your closet. All you need is a button-down chambray shirt, your favorite pair of jeans, and a red bandana.

Piper Chapman

Calling all Orange is the New Black fans. We’re all still on an OITNB high from this summer, so embrace it for the holiday and celebrate your favorite inmate. Grab your orange jumpsuit and call it a day! This costume is effortless and everyone will make the connection.

Like what you see? The good thing is each of these costumes is seemingly effortless to emulate. Whichever you choose, you probably already have half of the materials you need for the costume laying around at home. If not, none of these items are rare to come across, so someone in your inner circle is bound to be able to help you out. When all is said and done, remember to get into character and have a blast.
