10 best friend Halloween costumes to wear this year from LaurenConrad.com

Halloween will be here faster than we know it…Do you have your costume ready? I find that holidays are way more fun when you dress up with your favorite girl gang (remember my party animal and circus performer costumes?). There’s nothing better than turning on a spooky Halloween flick and breaking out the DIY supplies. While it’s fun to go all out on an elaborate costume, you may find yourself in a pinch and in need of a costume ASAP. I’ll let you in on a little secret: some of the best costumes can be found right in your own closet. That’s right, look no further than your wardrobe to find the perfect dynamic duo getups for you and your girls. If the inspiration still isn’t flowing, I’ve rounded up 10 best friend Halloween costume ideas that take mere minutes to put together. From classic ‘90s characters to everyone’s favorite emoji, these costumes are easy to recreate and are cute to boot. Keep scrolling to find your Halloween costume…
