We’ve all been there: You procrastinated your Halloween costume and now, it’s the witching hour. Whether it’s a frat party or a costume kickback with friends, you want to show off a good costume. Even if you didn’t exactly come up with one weeks beforehand.
Luckily, you’re not without options. And if you’re blonde, there are plenty of movie characters, pop culture references, and other personas you can tap into for your scary holiday adventures. Let the party commence with these ideas for last-minute Halloween costumes for blondes.
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, but what if you switch it up? 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 or 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!
