These 5 Last-Minute Halloween Costumes For Blondes Are A Major Slay

We’ve all been there, right? You procrastinated your Halloween costume all September and most of October and now, it’s the witching hour. Whether it’s a frat party Halloween rager or a costume kickback with friends while you watch the best new horror films of the season, you definitely want to show off a good costume. Even if you didn’t exactly come up with one weeks beforehand and DIY it for hours. Luckily, you’re not without options. And if you’re blonde, there are plenty of movie characters, pop culture references, and other well-known personas you can tap into for your scary holiday adventures and events. Let the party commence with these ideas for last-minute Halloween costumes for blondes. 

Additionally, if you are looking for a last-minute costume to do with your brunette best friend, there are several easy ways to make the cutest and easiest duo outfits in little to no time. Another tip for blondes includes reusing your Taylor Swift Eras Tour concert fit. You already put in the work bringing your “Bejeweled” dreams to life. You can dig your bodysuit or metallic skirt out of the closet and be Taylor for the night if you’re short on time. Here are a few last-minute Halloween costumes for blondes that you can do ASAP.

1. Cher from Clueless 

Cher is the perfect last-minute Halloween costume — all you need is yellow and black striped plaid for this iconic look. This outfit goes best with folks with straight blond hair that can be perfectly combed for a glossy and sleek vibe. Add tinted sunglasses and Converses for a full Y2K throwback, and you’re on your way to the next Halloween function.

2. Barbie with a Twist 

Barbie is a great last-minute Halloween costume for blondes. After all, this summer’s Barbie was a smash hit at the box office and stores are rife with pink gingham dresses, hot pink cowboy outfits, and more. If you can’t get a Barbie outfit at your nearby Spirit Halloween, you can be any Barbie you want! For example, you can change the game and go as “Goth Barbie,” completing the look with a black dress, dark eye makeup, and gothic accessories for an alt-chic look. Come on (goth) Barbie, let’s go party!

3. Serena from Gossip Girl

Serena literally just throws her clothes on and always looks beautiful. You can as well this Halloween, and even have your brunette bestie be Blair. This costume is already in the works for blondes with long hair. Simply pair a plaid skirt with her classic white blouse for an iconic Gossip Girl look, and don’t forget the classic headband. XOXO!

4. Britney Spears

Britney Spears is one of the most iconic costumes there is, and there’s no better way to show your support for the pop star than emulating her energy this Halloween. For the most on-brand Britney look, you can recreate her denim-on-denim moment with a jean dress and sparkly, silver accessories. Or, for a more iconic look, find a red latex body suit and pair it with straightened blond hair for that quintessential Britney vibe. You better know the words to “Toxic” and “Womanizer,” though. 

5. Daisy from the Great Gatsby 

If you saw (or read) The Great Gatsby and adored it, …now is your time to shine. Daisy Buchanan, the fashionable (and controversial) love interest, can now save you from Halloween hell. A black flapper dress, which can be found typically at a local costume or thrift store will be the main element. Add high heels and a silver headband, with hair in an updo and glitter jewelry, and you’re well on your way to a fabulous Halloween costume. Voila!
