We get it – Halloween is only one day. But you need your outfit to look fire. Other than throwing it back to your childhood days and hunting down a spare bin bag to cut arm and leg holes in, or finding a pair of mouse ears and hoping for the best (I’m a mouse, duh), finding a budget Halloween costume can be pretty difficult. We’ve rounded up these Halloween outfits for under £30 so you can creep it real without killing your bank account.
All hail the all-in-one. You don’t have to mess around to find what goes with what top or what matches with which trousers. Your getting ready time is literally cut in half with this throw-on-and-go option. Velvet and lace are major fabrics for the new season. If you pick up a velvet or lace jumpsuit, you’ll be able to re-wear over the festive season, saving you dollar. Vinyl is big for the season and even bigger for Halloween – mix sexy with fierce and opt for black or red vinyl options to deliver a Halloween style like no other.
Free the leg
There’s something for every babe when it comes to Halloween dresses. If you don’t fancy buying a one-time dress, opt for the forever-favourite LBD with lace, mesh or tassel detailing to give it an edge. You could even opt for a skeleton print dress if you want to make things super easy. Fancy going all out? Go for an angelic, feathered white dress, and team with a halo and wings to look like the angel you are. Just add your bestie dressed up as a devil and you are nailing Halloween goals.
Keep it separate
Turning up to a house party or event and don’t know what people are actually going to be wearing? Separates are an ideal way to do Halloween without looking overkill – we all know that scene in Mean Girls where Cady shows up to a house party dressed as a full-on gothic queen. Play it safe and go for mesh tops or bodysuits to inject a small dose of spooky. Keep it sexy in vinyl skirts or trousers and accessorise the sh*t out of your outfit for an H-game style that’s seriously killer.
Let your top do the talking
If you’re a seriously low maintenance gal who can take or leave Halloween, then you’re probably dreading having to get a costume. But, you can get the look with minimum effort with a slogan t-shirt or bodysuit. The best part is you can wear with anything you want, and can even dress it up with accessories if you want to get more in the spirit. Bonus!
Got some spare dollar from your £30 budget? Accessories can make or break an outfit. If you’ve already bought your Halloween outfit elsewhere but you’re regretting how basic it is, accessories can top up the ghoul factor. Go for face masks to add an element of mystery or mix it up in cat or mouse ears. And don’t forget, devil horns are always a failsafe pairing with red vinyl.
