We’ve got about 2 more weeks until Halloween and even less if you plan to celebrate all weekend long! If you are like me you start thinking about costume ideas and scouting events weeks in advance, but if you are just now starting to think about making plans, it’s not too late to put together an amazing costume! Rent the Runway is one of my favorite ways to “shop” especially for standout looks for special events. If you are looking for an affordable, no-commitment Halloween look for a special event, they are a great option. The site has thousands of options at your disposal, at a range of prices!
For the purposes of this post, I searched for styles that were under $50 at the time of publication for a 4-day rental in NYC. There may be some variance based on availability, length of rental, and where the goods are being shipping, so consider this a starting place for your search!
I’ve rented for a few Halloweens and am never disappointed. The look above was just a spooky glamour girl, and one year I was Diana Ross, complete with huge hair and long gold sequined gown! The options are pretty much endless. The best thing is each of these looks can easily be customized to various different costumes, all you need to do is swap out your ears, accessories and makeup to give these looks new life.
Here are some suggestions based on ideas that I was debating. Of course if you prefer to go more traditionally scary or super silly, you may want to go to a traditional costume shop to get what you need. But if you just feel like dressing up and going out all glammed up, stay tuned for my picks below!
Let me know what you plan on being for Halloween, and share your pics with me on Insta!
