Some people live for elaborate Halloween costumes that take weeks of planning. I am not one of those people. I'd much rather put on a cute pair of ears and call it a day, but sometimes that just won't cut it, and you need to look like you put in at least a little effort. Enter these seven simple costume ideas, inspired by things that fashion girls love, like Kate Moss and Zara. We made it our mission to present you with ideas that are original yet effortless and stylish yet comfortable (save for Victoria Beckham circa 1998). Not only that, you probably already have much of what it takes to create these costumes in your closet. And if you don't, we guarantee that you'll re-wear whatever you have to buy in real life. Here's hoping that the below costumes make the holiday a little more painless for you.

The beauty of this costume is that you'll probably want to wear this when you actually visit Disney. Bonus points for a camera around your neck and a Disney park map.

An athleisure-inspired Gigi Hadid costume is as cool and comfortable as it gets. Make it a couples' costume with the addition of a Zayn Malik.
Given the abundance of '90s-inspired Calvin Klein gear available these days, this is an easy look to achieve. If you're really committed, go barefoot for authenticity (if you're going to be indoors, that is).
Do as the VS Angels do backstage and sport a pink robe and flip-flops. Layer it over a slip dress if you prefer a little more coverage. Bonus: This costume is great for groups. (Reminder: Don't forget to take lots of kissy-face selfies.)
This one's greatness lies in the props. In addition to the sleek water bottle, we recommend a microphone headset, laptop computer or iPad, and spin shoes or high-top sneakers (they love high-top sneakers).
