5 Easy (But Fun!) Halloween Costumes

Halloween is just around the corner, and if you're like me, you put off the costume search until the last minute. I usually end up scrounging something together a few days before...but not this year! Having actually planned out my costume(s) already, I now have the time to help you. With some easy items from your closet, a few borrowed from friends, and a few you might have to buy, these are some easy Halloween costumes for the fashion-savvy girl

1. Carrie Bradshaw from SATC
This iconic fashionista is the perfect costume for the fashion-conscious. One of the pros is that you can wear almost anything adventurous and call it Carrie! Her signatures: the ab-bearing crop top, full skirts, Manolos (or statement Manolo-look-alikes), a fabulous bag (like the Fendi baguette), her "Carrie" necklace, and of course, her famous curls.

2. Julia Roberts from Pretty Woman
We all know that girls use Halloween as an excuse to dress, ahem, a little more...provocatively. Well this year, proudly accept that fact and literally dress like a prostitute! Julia Roberts's iconic turn in Pretty Woman is full of enviable looks (due to her expensive Beverly Hills wardrobe), but her initial outfit is the most fun. A leotard (preferable with cutouts), bandage skirt, and over-the-knee boots are the building blocks of the look. The blonde wig is a must!

3. Anna Wintour
Though not everyone will get it (I did it a few years ago and everyone thought I was Lady Gaga), anyone who knows fashion will see the classic blonde bob, oversized sunglasses, and vogue-in-hand and will recognize that you are the most powerful editor-in-chief in fashion. Anna's signatures include: short necklace, kitten-heel sandals, shift dresses, trench coats or tweed jackets, and bold prints.

4. Grace Coddington
Make your Anna Wintour costume a duo and have your friend go as Grace Coddington,   Creative Director and the second most recognizable face at Vogue. Her standard all black outfit, minimal make-up, and curly red do are all it takes to become this fashion icon.

5. Toddlers in Tiaras
As frightening as Toddlers in Tiaras (or just child beauty pageants) is, it makes for a hilarious costume. Though you can buy such costumes online and in stores, its a pretty easy one to make. Dig out that old tutu and leotard, throw on something cheesy (like a fur stole), put a tiara on your over-done, over-curled head, and wear those sparkly shoes that you wear once a year to capture the over-sexualized and creepy look of little girls in far too little clothing. Oh, and make sure you cover your face in pink make-up: what kind and where isn't important, just look like a clown.
