Source: Halloween is approaching fast and we still haven’t picked out our costumes yet. There are so many creative new ideas floating around out there, yet we really don’t want to drop around $100 on a costume we know we’re only going to wear once—especially when there are so many other items on our shopping wish list. So we challenged ourselves a bit. We wanted to create creative Halloween costumes that you don’t have to throw away on November 1st. What we came up with are six original looks that can be broken down and repurposed all season long. Here are our 6 Re-Wearable It-Girl Halloween Costumes — bringing some of that “cost-per-wear” to the costume game.
Superhero Halloween costumes can be somewhat of a cop out.  However, the teasers we’ve seen for next year’s blockbuster “Suicide Squad” gave us hope that there could be a more creative way to dress up as a superhero, or super villain.  In the movie, Margot Robbie, plays Joker’s closest accomplice, Harley Quinn.  Although the original costume for the character is a black and white bodysuit, Robbie’s wardrobe in the movie is much more realistic.  The baseball tee, jean shorts, and Chucks we found to match her look are classic pieces that you may already have in your closet.  Just have a little fun with your makeup and the look is complete!

Self-proclaimed (as well as critically acclaimed) “Queen of Rap”, Nicki Minaj dominated pop-culture in 2015.  Nicki, along with all of her alter egos, would be a blast to take on for Halloween.  Thankfully, her wardrobe has become a bit more sophisticated recently, which means taking her on as a costume is a lot easier now than it was in her smurf-hair phase.  We chose a high-waisted pencil skirt and platform heels for this look.  These pieces are closet staples and solid investment pieces.  Pair this with a fun bralette and a set (or two) of silicone breast enhancers to round out the look.  Just memorize a few runs from “The Pinkprint” and you’re good to go!

We loved Charlize Theron’s character in Mad Max.  Actually, we love the characters she plays in all her movies.  She’s definitely no princess.  The costume we pulled for this look was easy to put together.  Even if you need to pick up a few things to finish it off, your closet is going to benefit.  Our favorite item from this look: the ripped jeans.  Mother is one of our favorite denim brands and their “Looker” jean is the denim equivalent to the little black dress – chic, flattering, and extremely versatile.

It’s not easy to repurpose a medieval costume for everyday life.  However, we found some great pieces for our Daenerys Targaryen costume from “Game of Thrones” that can easily fit your wardrobe.  The “Fiona” dress from Free People is perfect for the Houston heat.  Try layering it with motorcycle boots and a denim jacket this fall as the weather cools off.  Then, wear it by itself come spring.  Maxis are a 3-season piece in Houston.

The FOX drama “Empire” is on it’s second season and ranks 7th in the line up of Primetime network broadcasts.  The star of empire, undoubtedly, is Cookie Lyon.  Cookie’s wardrobe has become iconic.  Yet if you break the pieces of this costume down, it’s extremely versatile.  The leopard print BCBG dress we chose for the look can be worn alone as a cocktail dress or layered with a blazer in more casual offices.  Another great find: the faux fur coat we paired the dress with from Forever 21.  Fur is on trend for winter and this dress is kind toward animals – and your wallet.

It may seem a little late in the game to jump on the vampire wagon, but American Horror Story’s 5th season has revived our bloodlust for the genre.  Mother monster, Lady Gaga herself plays the head vampire that inspired this look.  To recreate it, you’ll need a red dress with a dramatic cut, silver accessories, and awesome nail accessories (we love these vampire nails we found on

It may seem a little late in the game to jump on the vampire wagon, but American Horror Story’s 5th season has revived our bloodlust for the genre. Mother monster, Lady Gaga herself plays the head vampire that inspired this look.

This is probably the one Lady Gaga costume you’ll be able to reuse for work on Monday.
