Over time I’ve shared many high fashion Halloween looks, something I define as a costume you can pull together from your current closet without making a new purchase. Sometimes you need a prop here or there (usually easy to borrow), but for the most part, the majority of the costume should come from your current wardrobe. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite last minute halloween costumes from my own minimal closet.
Have you figured out who we are yet? My friend Elisabeth and I thought it would be fun to dress up as our favorite characters from Schitt’s Creek. I’m David Rose and she’s Moira Rose. From head to toe, I’m wearing a black wig borrowed from Elisabeth, a black sweater borrowed from my older son Aiden (I have one of my own but wanted a more oversized look), a white button down, my black leather pants, and white Veja shoes. I used black mascara to enhance my eyebrows along with liquid eyeliner to add brush strokes to them and draw on my fake stubble.

Mixed with some ethereal curly or wavy hair and some lighter or glowing makeup and you’re good to go.
Throw in a scarf (depending on the weather) or a backpack. I’d imagine this to have some sort of aluminum foil ice axe prop to complete the look.

So the hat isn’t that pointy, but if you cover a regular book with a DIY cover that says “spells” and make a wand out of a stick it should drive the point home.
I’ve done this in the past and wore every item of jewelry I owned to really drive it home. Bonus points if you have a black mask or draw one on with makeup.
Fashion a long black robe into a wrap dress and most of the work is done. Add red lipstick and a red rose and you’re good to go.
Which one is your favorite? What are you going to dress up as this year?
