We know — Halloween isn’t exactly around the corner — but that doesn’t mean that you don’t need to get a leg up on the office party competition with a next-level, budget-friendly costume. We are here to help you hack your way to greatness with a simple DIY Halloween costume that can come straight from your closet. First up is a look that has a hint of nostalgia — The Little Red Riding Hood costume. Let’s bring it wayyyy back to stories from when we were itty bitty.




— red cape or piece of red fabric

— white peasant blouse

— black corset-style belt

— white lace trim apron

— red maxi skirt

— black boots

— basket

The great thing about this costume is that you can go super simple and just wear a skirt, white tee and red hoodie, or you can add some upgrades — like the apron and peasant blouse — like we did.

Easy enough, right?!

Don’t forget, the key to this costume is a simple red maxi skirt. Learn how to sew one yourself in our e-class! Now, what’s in that basket?! ;)
