Can you believe it’s almost Halloween? This fall has flown by and if you are anything like us, time might have gotten away from you when it comes to planning a costume. As the party invites stack up, the more pressure there is to have a unique look for each night out. If you’re looking for something simple yet chic to throw on for every Halloween party you’re hitting, we’ve put together a list of three cute costumes you can create with just a black dress and some easy-to-find accessories. Whether you’ve completely forgotten to get a costume or you’re hoping to add a few extra looks to your lineup, these ideas are sure to have you looking like a treat on Halloween night.
If you have a black skater dress… you can dress up like Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s! This girly costume is super chic and you probably have everything you need to achieve the look (except for maybe those long black gloves, which are easy to find at costume stores). A black fit-and-flare dress pays homage to the classic Givenchy worn by Audrey Hepburn in the film, while on-trend cat-eye sunnies give you just enough attitude to pull off her sassy style. Wrap a few strands of pearls around your neck and slip on some black pumps for an elegant ensemble that’s almost effortless enough to wear every day. Slip on your gloves and grab a cup of coffee and a croissant and get ready to make eyes at anything sparkly that catches your attention!
If you have a long sleeve black maxi dress… you can go as Morticia Addams! Morticia is most known for her slinky black dress, which matches her long inky hair. Pair a curve-hugging maxi dress with a long black wig and a cameo necklace to get the look, and adopt a mysterious and spooky attitude to get the full effect. Grab yourself a Gomez and make sure your red lipstick is a long-wear formula if you plan on speaking any French 😉 A bouquet of rose stems (no flowers) completes the look and feels just a little bit morbid. Want to go a little more on the nose? Add a pointed hat and a broom for a quick and easy witch costume!
If you have a black bodycon dress… just add ears and you’re party ready as a cute cat! It’s a classic Halloween costume for a reason, given how sexy yet simple it is. A sleek little black dress becomes the perfect backdrop for you to dress up as a little black cat, showing off your curves and giving you a slinky look that would make any kitty say meow. We updated our ears with sequin and lace details and added a feline-inspired choker to look like a collar. Take it one step further by using black eyeliner or face paint to make whiskers and a nose and you have the ultimate last-minute costume.
