The classic pirate costume is an oldie but a goodie. You can be sure that box-office topper Captain Phillipsdespite not being a light-hearted pirate story—will still put this costume at the forefront of everyone’s mind.  To add to that, this costume comes built in with fall’s must-have accessory, a cute boot. No one ever said you couldn’t be stylish and ready for a Halloween party at once! Follow these simple steps to DIY your one-of-a-kind creation:

  1. Cut out a zig-zag pattern from the top layer of your tee and an uneven zig-zag on both skirts. Wear the red skirt over the black.
  2. Apply black tape to the red skirt and head scarf to create a striped pattern.
  3. Stamp skull and bones anywhere you want in white or black ink.
  4. Now you’re ready to p-ARRR-ty!
