Halloween Costumes From Your Closet

I was just invited to the Hamptons for the weekend and have to throw together a Halloween costume for Saturday night. I always look in my closet before buying any sort of costume because chances are, I can put something together! I always look to icons for inspiration.

I initially thought Patti Smith would be perfect, but I don’t have the right haircut and I am not willing to spend the money on a good looking wig. But then I realized I would just look like a slightly more disheveled version of myself, especially because I would be wearing all of my own clothes.

Get the look: Moto Jacket + Black Shaggy Hair + Scarf as Headband + White Shirt + Black Eyeliner

Then I thought 90’s grunge would work, because this trend is having a moment right now, and it isn’t necessarily my style, but the pieces are easily ┬áput together from my closet (and my boyfriend’s). Taking cues from Kurt Cobain of course…

I am leaning more towards 90’s grunge for this weekend’s festivities but still have some time to put together a costume for Halloween weekend. Who will you be this Halloween?
