I love Halloween, but to be honest, I’m not always great about planning out my costume in advance. Most of the time, I don’t even really know what I’m doing until the day of Halloween or associated party.
So, in honor of all you other ladies that procrastinate your costumes as I do, I’m presenting you with 5 easy Halloween costume ideas that you can make from clothes already in your closet.
And in case you don’t own some of these items, I’ll give you options below the pictures. Who says Halloween can’t be an excuse to buy new clothes?

This costume is great looking and made from classic pieces- like a white shirt and colorful dress. Chances are, you have both in your closet.
Quick hint: Bear costumes are easy to make! Simply get a brown hoodie and attach paper construction ears to the hood.
2. Airline Attendants/Pilots
After I drew this picture, I realized that this outfit could fit for both a flight attendant or a pilot. You can use any color suit or scarf you want; every airline has their own colors. Need a cute idea for a spouse or child? Try dressing them up like peanuts, coke, birds, clouds, or an airplane.
Once again, this costume is made from really classic pieces! If you’re struggling to know what basics you need in your wardrobe, this makes it super easy.
One of my favorite parts about the farmer outfit is that it is little kid- thus school- friendly making it a great option for teachers. If you are a teacher to small ones, you’ll love this style e-book; it contains a full wardrobe and 12 weeks of workday outfit ideas!
This would be particularly cute if you had a bunch of kids dressed up as farm animals. The cow kid costume above is made from a white t-shirt and black construction paper dots. A headband with construction paper ears tops off the outfit.
4 & 5. Mime & Breakfast at Tiffany’s (Audrey Hepburn)
Mime (left). Maybe it’s the francophile in me, but I’m a total sucker for the mime costume. The makeup is also super easy: cover your face in white powder (baby powder works) and then use black eyeliner to draw a triangle under each eye. Done!
Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany’s (right). Such an easy and classic look! Don a black boatneck dress (or skirt and top), add pearls, big sunglasses, and a topknot and you’re ready.
Did you know?: Both of these are great outfits for pear-shaped women. Click here to get more pear outfit ideas.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s (Audrey Hepburn):
