Pumpkins are lining your neighbor’s doorsteps. Scents of pumpkin spice and everything nice are wafting through the air. And everyone is keeping their lineup of Halloween costumes under lock-and-key for sake of surprise.
The good news: we’re not holding back on 4 simple Halloween costumes that satisfy your itch to dress up while ditching the uncomfortable, ill-fitting costumes reminiscent of 2nd grade Halloween parties.
P.S. We also curated a “costume” for those who are more of a close-the-blinds-and-turn-on-a-good-movie kind of Halloween observer — we get you and we have just the thing (scroll to the bottom for the ultimate Halloween at-home ritual).
To continue the trend of good news, we’d like to point out the fact that each of the below “costumes” can be worn long after Halloween 2022 comes to a close. So instead of adding to your “Halloween bin” of retired costumes destined for donation in the near future, you can add a few pieces to your everyday wardrobe — practical, sustainable and just as celebratory.
Whether you’re trick-or-treating, passing out candy, or using the holiday as an excuse to indulge in some extra TLC, Alo has you covered.
UNIQUE: ICE ANGEL
Consider the most recent Chalk Blue color drop divine timing because if this isn’t the perfect ice angel moment, we’re not sure what is. The sheen of the Airlift fabric on this HIIT-approved workout set equates to angelic shine on the holiday and during your hardest of workouts year-round. The ultra-cropped shrug makes the perfect layer for a chillier holiday, mornings, and pre-workout warm-ups. We had to throw in our Head-To-Toe Glow Oil so you can lather all over for a heavenly finish that will make others wish they’d foregone the crusted face paint for Glow Oil. For extra credit add wings — you’ve already got a halo.
NOSTALGIC: KIM POSSIBLE
Call Alo, beep Alo, if you want to reach Alo — we’ve got you and your inner child ready-to-go with the ultimate Kim Possible look. These oversized cargo-style pants deliver Kim’s iconic look with an added touch of luxe detailing. Paired with a mesh, open air long sleeve elevates the ensemble all together making Ms. Possible wish she’d done it your way. For the extras, we went with the very-fitting Explorer Fanny Pack as well as the Shine Shampoo and Conditioner because that frizz-free bounce and gloss is an essential for this look.
There’s a reason it’s a halloween go-to — it simply can’t be beat. To update the classic witch aesthetic, we went with our newly dropped bubble skirt that adds a touch of whimsical, on-trend vibes (plus a comfy inner short and hidden pocket making it court-ready post-holiday). An asymm bra top was a must for this witch look and this light-to-medium support bra with a peek-a-boo cutout creates undeniable charm that is necessary for the costume and the studio. Finish with a cropped puffer as your cloak, crew socks for a modern take on tights, and the Magic Multi-Balm (need we say more about the latter?).
SPOOKY: WEDNESDAY ADAMS
Can you hear the theme song playing already? Get your braids at-the-ready, this Wednesday Adams outfit is equal parts spot on and cute (in fact, we’re officially making this our fall uniform). Start with our fan-fave sweatshirt dress that’s oversized and ultra-comfortable with an adjustable buckled belt for the perfect fit. Then layer over a white cropped polo for the pop of collar that Wednesday would be proud to see. Lastly, add on some scrunchy socks and a pair of loafers and you’ve officially become a part of the Adams Family.
HOMEBODY: COUCH POTATO
It’s still considered a costume, right? The difference with this couch potato outfit is that it’s elevated to the max with head-to-toe cashmere. Our Jet Set Capsule is fabricated with the softest, 100% cashmere yarn that is as comfortable as it gets. Because you’re not spending on candy or drinks out at the bar, your excuse to buy cashmere has finally arrived. Before slipping into the set that would make anyone want to ditch their plans for a night in, we’ll be sure to keep you in the Halloween spirit with a nighttime ritual, a bathing ritual that is. This two-part Soak & Scrub creates a cauldron of exfoliation, moisturization, and unwinding bliss — no tricks, all treats.
