A halloween costume can be so much work. Plus you have to drop a wad of cash on that clever costume you’ll never wear again… Well, former TCM team member and body pos’ advocate Katie Horwitch of WANT, has done all the work for you with these eight easy Halloween costumes – all based on fitnesswear you’ll want to wear again and again. You’re guaranteed to get a lot more post-October use out of those super cute leggings than a “pizza rat” costume.
BIKER: ALO MOTO LEGGINGS
Maybe it’s the subtle touches of mesh. Maybe it’s the badass paneling across each leg. Maybe it’s the fact that they’re just so. damn. hot. But we’ve never felt more badass than when we’re sporting these Moto Leggings by Alo. Harley Davidson not included.
CATWOMAN: Medusa Jumpsuit
Okay, we know this one’s called the “Medusa”…but seriously, could this be any more well-suited for your best Catwoman impression (1992 Michelle Pfeiffer version, obviously). Michi always hits the right notes when it comes to fashion-forward fitnesswear – and that includes uber-unique pieces like this jumpsuit that doubles as a homage to our fave comic book villainess.
THE LITTLE MERMAID: SukiShufu Leatherback Leggings
You don’t need to sport a full on tail to channel those mermaid vibes. These show-stopping leggings by SukiShufu are figure-flattering, ultra-supportive, and have aquamarine shine for days. Bonus? They’re equipped with SPF 50 stitched right into the fabric, so you’ll be good to go by land or by sea.
SAVED BY THE BELL: Vimmia Bloomburst Legging
These bright floral leggings bring us back to the days when “social media” was a trip to the mall, mobile phones were any phone not attached to the wall, and we thought Zack Morris was all that and a bag of chips. We know these could double as a “flower fairy” or simply “girly-girl,” but after a quick online search we’re pretty sure these scream “Saved By The Bell Cast Member.” Are you so excited?
PRINCESS: FP Movement Lakota Embroidered Bralette
Have you ever seen a more gorgeous sports bra? We thought not. Almost too pretty to sweat in, Free People’s activewear line knocked it out of the park with this embroidered bralette. Delicate, graceful, and so perfect for your next barre class. Tiara not included.
’70s BABE: Onzie Bell Pant
We’re known to rock a pair of old-school bell bottoms on the regular anyway – so it was a no-brainer to take our retro fab ‘fit to the next level this October 31st. Printed legging leader Onzie has us swooning over these mid-rise bell bottoms that are just as groovy in the gym as they are on the street.
FLASHDANCE: Adidas by Stella McCartney Legwarmers
No ’80s-inspired ‘fit is complete without a pair of totally boss leggings. We love these Stella McCartney babies for a modern retro vibe we know we’ll be sporting way beyond October. Grab your fave oversized tee, and bam – you’re a maniac, maniac on the (gym) floor.
BRUSSELS SPROUTS: Private Party Muscle Tee
Oh, so you’re one of those people who’s not really into Halloween? There’s a ‘fit for that. Slip on this super-comfy muscle tee by Private Party and you’re set. If anyone asks? You’re “brussels sprouts.” You’re welcome.
