I’m always extra motivated for Halloween and have tons of Halloween costume ideas. I usually like to get inspired by items I already have in my closet and create a Halloween costume from scratch! If that seems like a daunting process, let me assure you that creating your own Halloween costume is actually easy and requires minimal time, and expenditures.
This year, I turned to my friend Jennifer to help me bring my Halloween costume ideas to life including my idea to dress like Mary Poppins. I had all the items to create this costume already in my closet (except for a few accessories) and I’m sure you, or a friend will to. If not, you can purchase these items and even wear them again in your everyday life. Honestly, everyone needs a flared black skirt, black opaque tights and a white blouse in their closet anyway!
This DIY Mary Poppins costume is real simple to create and I highly suggest you put your own fashion twist on it to make it your own! Play with different types of footwear like booties or heels, and play with other accessories.
Below, I broke down all the elements of this costume for you to recreate for yourself!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Flared black skirt: You or a friend definitely have one in your closet! Mary Poppins wears a midi length skirt, but even a shorter one will do to pull off this look.
- White blouse: I have one that has a black tie, but you could add your own black or red ribbon to any white blouse
Don’t forget your red lipstick and you’re ready to win best costume at your upcoming halloween party!
What are you going to be this year?
