Easy Halloween Costumes for the Family
Fall is finally kicking in, and that means cozy sweaters, big cups of hot cocoa, and, of course, finding the perfect Halloween costumes for the whole family. And we’ve never been fans of taking the easy way out and buying whatever costume we can find in the store because that’s way too easy (and too boring). But we also know that coming up with creative costumes for the whole family is no small feat, so we are here to make your life a little easier, and as adorable as can be, with our favorite easy DIY Halloween costumes.
We love teaching our little ladies about strong women in history, so we are over the moon for this Frida Kahlo costume. And it’s about as easy as it possibly can be — just pick a dress from our new collection of Wander & Wonder and then add a flower crown and draw in Frida’s iconic unibrow for the sweetest costume.
We love an easy lion costume for our littlest trick-or-treaters, because not only is it the cutest little costume, but it’ll alsokeep them so cozy. Just dress your little in this Quincy Mae organic cotton full-snap footie and then add on a mane and a tail, and they’ll be ready to roar.
Bring in some old-time charm that’s perfect for the gal who wants a costume that is as unique as she is with a train conductor costume. The Rylee & Cru denim jumpsuit is one that she’ll be able to keep wearing long after all of the treats are gone — just add the baker’s hat from Fini The Label and a red bandana.
You already know that we’re wild about leopard right now, so might as well make your new favorites do double duty by transforming into a leopard for all of your Halloween parties. For this costume, pick out any leopard piece, like the Saylor leopard-print dress, or any of our favorites from Jen's Pirate Booty, like the leopard slip dress, A-line dress, or the button-down blouse. Your little girl can wild up her look, too, with this leopard tee and leggings! Then, just add on ears, a tail, and draw on a nose and whiskers to complete your costume.
Let your cool guy show off his rugged side (and find a new outfit that he’ll love rocking for school too) with this homemade lumberjack costume. It’s as easy as the checkered button-down from Rylee & Cru, the DL1961 pants, and the beanie and glove set from Fini The Label. Oh, but make sure you don't forget about the fake beard!
This easy scarecrow costume will be anything but scary — unless you want to switch things up and go for more of that undead look with a little creative makeup. However you want to play it, start with the Rolla’s denim overalls, the Free People button-down top, and the cutest fray boater hat from Lack of Color. If you’re like us and always go way too hard with your Halloween look, you can stuff your shirt with straw, just make sure to wear a soft shirt underneath so you’ll be comfortable for all of your spooky forays.
