Can you believe we’re already into mid-October? We’ve been enjoying fall so much that we’ve neglected all of our autumnal duties – including finding a Halloween costume! With less than three weeks left until the big day, we’re thinking about forgoing a costume altogether and just throwing something together last minute…
And what’s one of the easiest themes to pull off? A wild cat! Whether your preference is leopard, cheetah, black panther, or regular ol’ housecat, chances are you have some of the elements already and can pick up the rest just like that. We’re not kitty you! So avoid a Halloween cat-astrophe and check our our tips for an a-meow-zing costume.

- The Fur – We don’t have to tell you that there are a million choices out there for the body part of your costume, so just pick a print (scale and color considered) that you like! For a fancier party, we’d go with a sweeping maxi, but if you’re taking some kiddies trick-or-treating, a saucy little romper would be both cute and functional!
- The Paws – You can’t have a kitty cat costume without covering your feet in something spectacularly spotted too! We love pattern-covered knee- and thigh-highs, but you could also go a little more subtle. Maybe an elegant printed d’Orsay heel? Or just a classic pointy pump with a faux fur pom-pom on the back…
- The Rest – And speaking of faux fur pom-poms, why not finish your wild thing look off with all the faux fur you can find? Like pom-pom earrings or a vegan leather snapback with an oversized furball on top. Or, if you wanna avoid hat hair, get your Ariana Grande on with an adorable cat ear headband. ‘Cause you are kitty, hear you RAWR.
