Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

At robin b., fall is undoubtedly our favorite time of year. Living in Rhode Island, there are so many things to love about the season: the changing leaves, local events, and autumn food. While all of these rank high on our list of favorite fall things, there’s one that reigns supreme as most anticipated – Halloween!

Maybe it’s the thrill of a little spook and scare. Perhaps it’s because our 5-year old, dress-up-loving self still lives on inside of us. Whatever the reason may be, we anxiously await the night we can throw on a costume and adopt an alter-ego for the evening.

If you haven’t picked out a costume yet, there’s no reason to miss out! We’ve styled 3, last-minute Halloween costumes that are easy and consist of staple pieces that you’ll continue to wear long after the clock strikes midnight.


Last minute halloween costumes - Hippie Chick

The Hippie Chick

The hippie chick costume is a little #throwbackthursday and a whole lot of style! With vintage so on trend right now, you won’t have to look far to find the perfect pieces to create this last minute Halloween costume. Grab yourself a pair of high-waisted flares like these Parker Smith Bombshell retro showstoppers and pair it with a flowy, cozy poncho (we love this Capote style with pockets!). Top off your outfit with a scarf and some rose colored glasses and you’ve got one groovy look. Bonus: the fall poncho will keep you warm during late-night trick-or-treating with the kids and will look just as gorgeous worn to work the next day.

Last minute halloween costumes - Rock Star

The Rock Star

If your style has a little more edge, step out this Hallow’s Eve as the rock star you truly are! This look is almost effortless as it’s black, black, and even more black! You can create this super flattering outfit by pairing a sleek, dark pair of coated skinny jeans with a textured moto jacket. Henry and Belle’s super skinny ankle jeans are not only a perfect base for this look, but are currently an additional 20% off! For a pop of color, layer a vintage concert tee underneath your moto jacket then top things off with a leather cuff and a luxe pair of booties. Now tease that hair, dig out your blue shadow, and rock on!

 Last minute Halloween Costumes - Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn

For the lady who prefers a more classic style, dressing up as Audrey Hepburn is always a show-stopping choice. Chances are you’ll have most of these items in your closet already but, if not, you can feel good buying these staples because you know you’ll wear them many times again. Channel everyone’s favorite pixie-haired beauty by stepping out in a European-inspired midi skirt and classic black tee like this “not so basic” long sleeve style from our robin b. line. Throw on some pearls, grab your favorite pair of oversized sunglasses and brush up on your Breakfast at Tiffany’s quotes.
