Halloween is just a few days away and if you’re like the rest of us busy bishes, you haven’t even had time to think of a costume yet. Chill, we got you! Here are a few suggestions that can work with what you already have in your closet and don’t require that much running around town or hitting up every Goodwill on the map. If you go with one of the below, tag us on Instagram so we can see your look!
If You and Your BFF are The Hottest: ‘90s Supermodels
Are you and your girl super popular and proud of it? Give ode to besties Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss and break out the ‘90s thigh-highs, fur-collared jackets, or an ultra-glam dress. If more of the girl gang wants to join in, bring ‘em along! Naomi and Kate always stayed close to the rest of their clique–Christy, Cindy, and Linda.
If You Want to Break Outta Your Shell: Desperately Seeking Susan
There’s a Susan in all of us–she dances like no one’s watching, isn’t afraid to express herself through her wardrobe, and has confidence that shoots through the roof. This is a perfect look for someone who’s fashion-nostalgic and can appreciate the iconic mark Madonna left on the world in the early ‘80s.
If You Want to Make a Statement: Rep the Handmaids
It may seem a little deep for this time of year, but nothing is more scary than how close The Handmaid’s Tale hits home. Recently, Planned Parenthood activists have worn the attire to symbolize the government’s power over women’s rights. While this is not meant to be a funny costume in any way, the story behind it is terrifying and worth bringing to light.
If You Roll With the Cool Kids Who are Anti-Costume: Calvin Klein Ad
You and your friends are ‘90s-simplicity reborn, and no one wants to break out of their comfort zone. We get it. Halloween is an investment. Go with denim and tees and huddle around each other all night to recapture Calvin Klein’s most sexy and referred-to campaign.
If You and Your Squad Want to Match: Go En Vogue
Pick from any of the R&B group’s music videos and you’ll find a flurry of costume inspo. “Free Your Mind” was rock-star edgy, “Giving Him Something He Can Feel” was super sexy, and “My Lovin” molded vintage style with modern glam. The Funky Divas stood for female empowerment and their message (and style) is still relevant today.
If You Wanna be a Millennial Princess: Bad Gal All the Way
Our Bajan favorite has stepped out in some of the best over-the-top gowns that would make any Disney princess jealous. Whether it’s the pink hi-lo look, the crimson dress that Rihanna wore to the Valerian premiere, or even the tulle lavender mini she stepped out in during Fenty Beauty’s worldwide launch, the woman knows how to look like royalty! Any excuse we can use to give props to her epic style and be treated like a princess, we’ll take.
