Halloween Essentials Under $15 from H&M!

Although we admire the outlandish peeps who go all out for Halloween (especially the over-the-top creativity we witness in New York City), we never dress up in a full-fledged costume.  Instead, we might dabble in a smokey eye and don a wig, a witch hat or some trendy black ensemble inspired by the macabre holiday.  And that's what makes Halloween fun for adults--you can dress up in ghoulish drag or simply make a playful fashion statement .

To help you create a Halloween-inspired look for less that would make Lady Gaga proud, here are a few Halloween essentials from H&M--each for under $15.

We love this perfectly Gaga velvet headband adorned with a gold skull, $7.95.

Dance to the dead in these rockin' skull leggings, $14.95.

This knit beanie is the perfect hipster accessory, $9.95.

This skull scarf is an easy way to pay homage to Halloween, $5.95.

Get ready for an "Eyes Wide Shut" moment in this ornate mask, $9.95.
