Stylish Halloween Costume Inspiration

I'm not one of those costume-in-a-bag type of girls. It's more like.. I need an excuse to buy this crazy trendy item, I might never wear again and therefore will create a Halloween costume around it. For example, this year I've been dying for a pair of totally impractical lace up leather shorts.. and voila, when combined with a packers jersey, knee socks & lace up wedges I'm a football player a la Alexander Wang.
Check out some of my other fashionable Halloween costume inspirations here, many which can be created with pieces already existing in your closet!
Stylish Costume Inspiration: Kate Middleton
For bonus points, find a male counterpart to dress as Prince William in a tailored suit! I love the union jack tote bag to trick or treat with.
Stylish Costume Inspiration: Daisy Buchanan
Accessorizing a sequined or fringed dress with art deco accessories and turban and voila, you're instantly channeling Daisy or any stylish 20's flapper.
Stylish Costume Inspiration: Black Swan
Live out your childhood ballerina dreams in a poufy black dress & lace up ballet flats a la Black Swan. & Check out the Black Swan make-up tutorial via Refinery 29 
Stylish Costume Inspiration: Football Player
These are the leather shorts that inspired this year's Halloween costume!
Do you know what you're being this year? Or what's your favorite Halloween ensemble?
