7 Cool Halloween Costume Ideas From an NYC Designer

It might only be September, but all you need is a quick trip to your local drug store to know that Halloween is basically already here. The costume pressure is on, ladies.

This year, we're really aiming to do something more creative with our costumes—and we want to help you do the same. We enlisted the help of Banana Republic creative director and designer at her eponymous New York brand Marissa Webb, who shared with us her frightfully good ideas for creative Halloween costumes.

Keep scrolling to see what Webb has up her sleeve this Halloween season!

This one's especially great if you already own a Chanel bag.

Such an '80s pop icon!
