Wear It Wednesday: Wardrobe Basics that can be turned into Halloween Costumes

If you need to come up with a last minute Halloween costume, chances are the solution is already in your closet!

Old Navy Slim-Fit Turtleneck for Women
Old Navy Jersey Leggings for Women

Grab a black turtleneck like the one above from Old Navy ($19.99 plus an additional 30% off) and a pair of black leggings (also Old Navy on sale for $10) and you have the basis for a number of costumes.

Add a tail, ears and whiskers and you have a classic black cat costume. Or add a black skullcap and go as a cat burglar. Or add wings and fangs and go as a vampire bat.

Forever 21 Ribbed Lettuce-Edge Bodysuit
Wild Fable Women’s Faux Leather Moto Jacket

Swap the turtleneck for an off-shoulder black top like this one from Forever 21 ($14.99) and black leather (or faux leather) jacket like this moto jacket from Target ($35, see Target coupons), add high heels and lots of hairspray and you’re Sandy from Grease!

Ten Sixty Sherman
Twist Front Sleeveless Sheath Dress
Monet Jewelry White Simulated Pearl 18 Inch Cable Collar Necklace

Your standard “little black dress” like the simple sheath pictured above (less than $21 at Nordstrom Rack) paired with a multi-strand pearl choker necklace (on sale for $14.40 with code TOSAVE38 at JCPenney) is the basis for a Holly Golightly “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” costume. You can pick up a tiara and long black gloves at Shindigz to complete the look.

Modern Long Sleeve Boatneck T-Shirt

Add a red and white striped top like this one from Gap (on sale for $19) with a pair of jeans and you’re “Where’s Waldo?” Get a Waldo hat and round glasses from Shindigz.

Women’s Labette Long Sleeve Denim Shirt – Universal Thread™ Dark Wash
50’s Vintage Style Sheer Chiffon Square Scarf

Finally, pair a denim shirt with sleeves rolled up like the one above from Target ($19.99) with a red and white polka dot bandana like this from Walmart ($6.99) and you have an easy Rosie the Riveter costume.
