Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Halloween is tomorrow but you have been so swamped that you forgot to plan a costume.  Sound familiar?  The last thing you want to do the night before Halloween is shop for a costume.  Today, I have put together some outfit ideas using easy to find and every day clothing options. Each costume is based on a popular movie's leading lady! 

1. Snow White

Everyone loves an adorable princess.  For this costume, find flowing pieces in primary colors.  To help your friends guess your identify, find an apple inspired accessory or tell them to watch Disney's first full-length animated feature.

2. Breakfast at Tiffany's

Everyone has at least one Little Black Dress in their closet and here is another excuse to wear it!  In the 1961 classic, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Audrey Hepburn plays New York socialite looking for love. Pair your LBD with a pearl necklace, black pumps, and your favorite classic earrings.

3. The Hunger Games

With one blockbuster movie out and another soon to follow, The Hunger Games is an easy Halloween costume.  Main character Katniss Everdeen, portrayed by the hilarious Jennifer Lawrence, is a spirited young woman who is fighting to keep her family alive.  Portray Katniss' strength by choosing pieces made of brown leather and do not forget to pull on your favorite boots.

4. Pitch Perfect

One of my all-time favorite chick-flicks is Pitch Perfect.  Starring Brittany Snow, Anna Kendrick, and Rebel Wilson, this film is packed with music, one-liners, and cute boys!  This costume is based on the uniform of Barden University's female A Capella group, The Bellas.  A dark colored pencil skirt, white button-down, and black pumps create the base of this outfit.  Add a matching suit jacket and color silk scarf to be aca-gorgeous!
