Tomorrow is Halloween, and while we know a lot of you may have celebrated the beloved holiday over the weekend, if you’re waiting for the day itself to display your best costume and are still unsure what that costume should be, we’ve got you covered.

Whether you opt for an on-trend outfit (think a Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift duo) or would prefer a classic getup (such as a bunny or a princess), you’re bound to have a fun night either way. But if you, like us, are a last minute costume planner and need an idea that will get you through tomorrow with a plausible amount of credit or compliments, we have an idea for you courtesy of Melissa Wood-Tepperberg.

The workout and wellness leader’s DIY costume from the weekend—while totally chic—was a classic, and a seemingly simple option easy for the last-minute crowd to recreate. She paired black leather top and a matching mini skirt with a fringe-heavy jacket, a pair of black boots and a hat for an incredible cowgirl outfit.

“DIY is how we roll…& last slide of Noah telling me how important it is we’re on time (late is also how I roll). 🫣,” she joked in the caption of an Instagram post from the weekend.

Wood-Tepperberg proved that a glamorous costume doesn’t have to require extensive planning and execution. A good, classic idea might just make for the best Halloween look. So, if you’re still searching for a Tuesday night ’fit, DIY western-inspired wear might just be the way to go.
