Fashion Girl Halloween Costumes

5 Ways to Transform Your Favorite 2017 Fashion Trends Into a Halloween Costume

This October, forgo the prepackaged costumes, and put your fashion chops on full display. We've partnered with H&M to help you get creative and transform your most stylish pieces into Halloween-worthy looks.

Halloween is all about creativity, and there's nothing more creative than transforming your favorite everyday fashion pieces into a striking costume. After all, anybody can pick up a premade costume from the store, but it takes some serious sartorial skills to be able to put a Halloween twist on those stylish pieces you wear on the daily.

From lace to fishnet, we took our favorite microtrends of the year and converted them into fun and easy costumes any fashion girl can rock on October 31. Keep scrolling to see the totally on-trend costumes, ranging from sweet to spooky, that will help you celebrate the holiday in style.


Get your glam on, and go for a classic '90s supermodel look with a luxe faux-fur shag coat as the starring piece. Complete with a little black dress, ankle boots, a choker, and drop earrings, you're sure to steal all the attention.


While the lace accent trend lends itself easily to more feminine or romantic costumes, challenge yourself to go beyond the expected, and use the delicate texture to create an eerie effect. Wear the lace-detailed blouse with leggings and platform boots, all in black, to provide contrast to full-on skeleton face makeup.


The fishnet trend isn't slowing down anytime soon. What better way to put your favorite tights to work this Halloween than with a creepy-crawly spider costume? Opt for a simple black dress to let your arachnid-themed accessories shine. Then finish the look with venomous lips and cobweb eyeliner.


Work Fall's It pattern into your Halloween costume with this '90s-inspired get-up reminiscent of a certain Beverly Hills high schooler. The plaid sweater works in tandem with the white button-down shirt, leather mini, over-the-knee socks, and patent boots to create a uniform that's too cool for school.


Match moody floral embroidery with an equally moody costume. Combine a twirl-worthy mesh skirt with a bodysuit and flats, all in a somber palette, for the ultimate dark ballerina vibe. Don't forget the feathered eye makeup and dark lips to complete your ensemble.
