Last Minute Halloween Costumes!

Halloween is right around the corner, colliegettes! If you haven’t yet found your perfect costume, check out these five Her Campus Cincinnati-approved looks! We all fall victim to procrastination and budgets that don’t have room for any splurges, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look fabulous this Halloween. With items right from your closet or the nearest Forever 21, you can easily create any of these simple costume ideas when you’re in a pinch. You can even find ways to make use of those trendy items you bought last year but have yet to wear!

1. Military Cutie

Camo leggings and combat boots—need I say more? Add some war paint to spice it up!

2.  Beach Bum

For those who are fearless, rock your bikini and beach cover up. Add sunglasses and a towel or even a small pool float! To make your look funny, you can even pile on bronzer to look like a “burnt” beach bum.

And, of course, the "burnt" beach bum...

3. Audrey Hepburn

Rock your perfect little black dress and lots of pearls. Audrey Hepburn is classic and timeless, and her look isn’t terribly hard to pull off if you have the right basic items. Be sure to put your hair in a sleek topknot. Complete the look with long black or white gloves and a pearl bracelet—and don’t forget the RayBans! If you even want to splurge on a vintage cigarette holder, you can find one here!

4.  A Pineapple

This is a favorite floating around the Internet lately, and we just adore how simple and cute it is. All you need a yellow dress and a DIY pineapple top. Check out this simple tutorial!

5.  Regina George

The ultimate “Mean Girl” herself! She has two simple looks, both perfect for Halloween. First, her bunny costume: a black corset, tights, and bunny ears are all you need! Her other look is the “sabotage” look: you need a black skirt, white tank, and a purple bra. Make sure you wear a tank that can be thrown away after since you will need to cut two holes in the breasts!
