Whether you like to go all-out or are a last-minute costumer, we know that figuring out your Halloween ensemble for the plethora of upcoming parties can be daunting. To help, we've conjured up 10 ready-to-go outfits - perfect for the many themed parties this year - you can easily put together from pieces you own already and pieces that you can wear long past Oct 31.
A traditional Mexican holiday that honours their deceased loved ones, a Day of the Dead party involves lots of black, large flowers and of course, a painted skeletal face. Give it a fashion-friendly spin with some seriously sexy lace-up boots and a drop-dead gorgeous clutch. Painted face highly encouraged.
Get ready for an out-of-this-world party with all things shiny and metallic. A silver lip is optional, but this rocket Chanel clutch is a must.
Unleash your wild side with this Margiela bralet and Balmain skirt. Come armed with some fancy, feathery accessories and you'll undoubtedly be crowned Queen of the Jungle (or at least the party).
One look at this outfit and we know what your future holds—you'll be best dressed at any Halloween soiree while looking chic enough for dinner elsewhere. Just be sure to bring along your crystal ball and tarot cards to be extra convincing.
Did someone call a doctor? This is probably one of the easiest last-minute Halloween looks: bust out your most lab-worthy white jacket, some killer (pun totally intended) stilettos, a doctor (read: work) bag and some gloves and you're good to go. You're welcome.
One of the most iconic villains in the comic world, dressing as The Joker will give you serious street cred no matter which party you go to. Stay on the chic side with a purple blazer and green skirt and tie, then add appropriate makeup and a haunting laugh if you're feeling extra daring.
Don't feel like dressing up as a character? Get fashionably creepy in a black lace gown and the most goosebump-inducing accessories you own (how freaky are these horse hair earrings?). If anyone asks, you're dressed as your dark side.
For the no-fuss gent who still wants to participate in the annual fright fest, Riff Raff from the Rocky Horror Picture Show is the way to go. Throw on a balding wig and a menacing stare for a dramatic effect.
When you hear "explorer" your mind undoubtedly conjures up the image of Harrison Ford raiding things and running from boulders. So dress head-to-toe in all things brown and leathery, obtain a long piece of rope as your lasso and you're good to go.
Who knew dressing as Frankenstein's Monster could look so chic? Get maximum sartorial points in this emerald velvet suit-jacket combo and fasten some bolts to the side of your neck to keep things freaky.
