6 Dresses To Wear Before, During and Long After Halloween

We’ll admit it – we’re sick and tired of buying those trashy (not to mention pricey) packaged costumes year after year only to throw them in the back of our closets on November 1st, never to be seen again. So what’s a girl to do? Ladies, feast your eyes on 5 dresses that work double duty as killer costumes on Halloween and hot ensembles for every other day of the year. Now that’s what we call a treat.

Greek Goddess: This Suzi Chin Empire Waist Dress ($158) just needs a pair of gladiator sandals, a sparkly headband, and some gold bracelets to take it from an ordinary maxi dress to Mediterranean Royalty.

1920’s Flapper: Adding a feather boa, a wrap headband, and black gloves to this Aqua Multicolored Sequin Tank Dress ($178) will have you doing the Charleston but a pair of black sandals and a boyfriend blazer will have you dancing everything in between.

Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s: A black shift like this DKNYC Stretch Shift ($99) is classic and looks good with anything but to get Holly’s look, pair it with a tiara, pearls, and chic sunglasses.

Devil: Feel devilishly sassy in this BCBGMAXAZRIA Sleeveless Knit Dress ($149) with some red fishnets, a pair of horns, and red heels. Turn down the heat after Halloween with a pair of black tights and matching heels.

Alice in Wonderland: Pair this J.Crew Chiffon Abigail Dress ($195) with a white apron, white tights, and black flats to waltz through Wonderland but pair it with black pumps for a night out with the girls.

Tom Cruise in Risky Business: Take those old records off the shelves (and the belt off of) this James Perse Cotton Shirt Dress ($185) and throw on some high white socks, a pair of wayfarer sunglasses, and men’s boxers. Wear it with simple ballet flats when you’re not being Mr. Katie Holmes.
