Cute Halloween Costume Ideas With DressLily

You guys, it’s October! That means that Halloween is about one month away. Every year I go through the same process of figuring out what to be for Halloween. I can never decide, and I search all throughout Pinterest and Instagram. I put it off until Halloween reaches, and I still end up Amazon priming a silly unicorn onesie.

Yup. Happy Halloween.

I’ve thought of an interesting idea. Instead of purchasing a whole costume, it would be nice to buy something that I can use as a costume once, but still continue to wear in my normal, non-Halloween life the other 364 days of the year.

For example, this orange dress I wore to a wedding was my inspiration. Someone at the wedding told me it reminded them of Esmerelda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame, so that’s exactly what I may use it as if I don’t end up buying one of these other lovely dresses.


I found more than 2000 styles of fashion women’s dresses at Dresslily! Bandage, club, bodycon, chiffon, vintage, lace, bohemian dresses etc. Which is your favorite for a Halloween costume? Here are a few ideas I’ve come up with.

There are many different options for Minnie Mouse! They have so many adorable red and white polka dot dresses.
