Last Minute Halloween Costumes All from American Apparel

In college, it felt like you had all the time in the world to plan, prep, and create your magical Halloween costume. Now that we’re in the real world? Not so much. So for those of you who’ve left your Halloween costume until the last minute, you’re not alone. My solution for last minute costumes of any kind has always been American Apparel. Although sometime overpriced, their pieces are super versatile so you’ll most likely get more than a handful of wears out of whatever item you buy, whether for another costume or even everyday.

So after snatching up my costume at American Apparel yesterday, I thought I’d round up some other quick and easy last minute Halloween costumes you can throw together quickly. Just run over to your nearest American Apparel and shop away using these pieced together ideas below!
