Last-Minute Costume Ideas That Are It-Girl Approved

If you’re anything like us, you understand the struggle once October arrives. We try and plan ahead, only to find ourselves without a costume a week before Halloween. Sound familiar? It does to blogger Grasie Mercedes of Style Me Grasie. “I’m the ultimate procrastinator,” she says. “I usually wait until the day before to think about my costume, and by then, the stores are packed and all the good ideas are taken.”

In an effort to put an end to the madnesss, we’ve teamed up with Mercedes to come up with two last-minute costume ideas that involve pieces you likely already have in your closet. “Given that a lot of my style icons are celebrities, I thought I’d take inspiration from a few of my favorites to come up with a costume,” explains Mercedes. Armed with pieces from the Who What Wear collection, accessories from her closet, and her favorite TRESemmé products, Mercedes took cues from pop culture and styled two costumes that are easy to pull off but totally memorable.
