We’ve all been there, and before you start stressing about what to wear, know that there are tons of quick outfits out there for inspiration! Sometimes all you need is to open up your closet and look at the clothes you already have to put together the perfect Halloween ensemble.
If you’re into costumes on the geekier side, we’ve rounded up some great ideas that can be pulled together in no time. You could go for super-easy options like Jessica Jones — this one basically only requires a leather jacket and jeans — or more elaborate and fanciful costumes like Harry Potter and Princess Bubblegum from “Adventure Time.” Old-school throwbacks like Scooby-Doo are easily recognizable and simple at the same time, while quirkier costumes like Elsa from “Frozen” as a Gryffindor student offer the opportunity to let your creativity shine. Regardless of what kind of Halloween you’re trying to have this year, and no matter how quickly you need to pull together a costume, we have a slew of options to inspire you ahead.
