5 Must-Have Halloween Pieces for The Lazy AF Girl

This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% from Her Campus.

Halloween can be a stressful time where it seems everyone is trying so hard to create the smartest, best-looking costume to be the star of the party. Most of us dream of the perfect Halloween costume but find we just don’t have the time to go out and search through hundreds of outfits and accessories, just to end up creating everything by hand. There’s no need to be disappointed with your efforts, however. For us lazy-girls, there are plenty of easy statement pieces that can make any outfit Halloween worthy, even at the last minute. 

1. Some spooky earrings

Some simple, spooky earrings can be the perfect addition to make any outfit Halloween worthy. It’s up to you whether you want to go more cute, such as a cat on a broom, or creepy, such as skeleton hands. We think Liven Co.’s Skull Post earrings are the ideal choice between cute and creepy; you can even wear them after Halloween to make your day to day outfits a little more daring. 

2. A mystical necklace

If earrings aren’t your thing, you can always choose a Halloween-themed necklace to creep up your outfit. Many options can work for both Halloween season and afterward, where it just becomes another unique piece of jewelry. Jen Hansen’s Small Moon Necklace is one such choice; who doesn’t love a crescent moon?

3. The obligatory little black dress

The perfect LBD can be the base of any Halloween outfit and is perfect for parties. Try and find an option that is a little more unique to create the best costume, such as Boston Proper’s Beyond Slim and Shape Strappy Dress, which features shoulder straps reminiscent of a spooky cobweb. All you need to do is find a toy spider and you’ll be set!

4. A classic black jumpsuit

Like the LBD, a black jumpsuit is a staple piece of any wardrobe. To make it Halloween-worthy, just add a few accessories like a witch’s hat and broom or a flower crown and go-go boots. Dress Up’s Cara Front-Tie Maxi Jumper is the perfect choice that is stylish and elegant enough to wear the rest of the year. It’s also versatile enough to be the base of any Halloween costume. 

5. A pair of black heels

Black heels are a must to dress up any outfit and are perfect for that dark, spooky Halloween theme. Try and find a pair with lace, which can resemble cobwebs in a pinch yet still be perfectly classy for the rest of the year. We recommend Adrianna Papell’s Hazyl Black Chagall Lace heels that feature a pointed toe perfect for any witch. 

Have fun mixing and matching and being creative with your statement pieces. The best part is, you can wear all of these year-round, making you the real winner of Halloween!
