If you’re a true socialite, then you most likely Halloween shop out of your own closet. Use these celebrity Halloween costumes as inspiration and build off of your favorite fashion trends from the year. You should only need to purchase an accessory or two to make any costume complete. Does your Halloween span 3-4 nights? Will you need a different costume for each event? Then this is the DIY guide for you!
Celebrity Halloween Costume: Take 2
The best inspiration comes from the celebrities themselves. The best celebrity Halloween costumes are as much fun to act out as to dress up. Grab your BFF and do a celebrity duo, such as Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone from Absolutely Fabulous. Total posh beehive hairdos, statement earrings, total lushes – what’s not to love? We love this Instagram-perfect image of the Foster’s version of Ivana and Melania Trump. The possibilities are endless.
Do you wanna’ know how I got this smile? Just because you’re a girl, doesn’t mean you can dress up like a guy. Or as a guy dressed up like a girl. Bonus: celebrity Halloween costumes can take a lot of the guesswork out of the equation. Check out this stellar Joker costume. Easy! An all-white dress with a tidy belt is half the battle. Shop on Amazon for a green wig and a nurse cap and you’ve got a hot costume on a budget. After all, “It’s not about money.. it’s about sending a message.”
Bonnie + Clyde
With hipster style being all the rage, it shouldn’t be too hard to throw together an outfit from the “Public Enemy Era”. Couples do the best celebrity Halloween costumes and gangster couples are the best! Clyde sure had some arm candy with that Bonnie gal. Grab one of our favorite beret styles and a neck scarf and do the rest with what you have on hand. A pencil skirt in tweed and a basic top works perfectly.
Sandy From Grease
If you’re single and on the market, just do what Gigi does. Smokin’ hot celebrity Halloween costumes don’t have to be all skin. Even the most modest girls can add a little sex appeal to their dress-up repertoire. Take a cue from girl-next-door Sandy Olssen who had to add a little “Pink Lady” to her look to catch her #1 guy. A black crop top and ultra high-waist pants should be in all of your closets by now. Red lips, red nails, and a perfect cat eye complete the look.
For the more creative types, an easy DIY is perfect for night number 3 or 4. Realistically, the coolest celebrity Halloween costumes involve a headpiece and a bit of makeup. A moon or sun goddess needs only a monochromatic, minimal dress or kimono. Take a look at our color watch on silver and add some shimmer to your ensemble. Tattoo eye chrome with metallic shimmer looks amazing and is a more subtle approach (if you need it). Dress up for fun, but pace yourself.
Did you catch our article on 90’s Hip Hop Fashion? Musicians are known for their stage presence, so they always make for great celebrity Halloween costumes. Grab an Adidas track jacket and track pants in black and you’ve got a costume you can take to the gym later! That makes spending the money a little more worth it, don’t you think? Useful Halloween costumes that don’t sit in storage for years to come. And Cazal sunglasses are always worth the splurge 😉
Speaking of sunglasses, Ray-Bans are a great staple accessory. You can use them for a myriad of characters or celebrity dress ups. Madonna is the easiest of all celebrity Halloween costumes, because there are so many looks to choose from! Whether you rock her Vogue look with a double breasted-blazer or her classic Material Girl in a sheer slip, you’re sure to slay. Material Girl is all about the accessories, so jump into your costume jewelry stash and pile it on! The 80’s are soooo fun to relive, aren’t they?
Watch Movies, Listen to Music
If you’re still stumped about what to wear, turn to Netflix or your collection of vinyl to get those creative juices flowing. The best celebrity Halloween costumes are characters you enjoy everyday! Pop in a classic from the 80’s or 90’s and pay attention to the outfits. Turn to your favorite band members or pop artists and pick someone whose outfits are already in your closet. The less you have to fuss, the more fun it will be to get dressed up. And with online shopping making deliveries so quickly these days, a few finishing touches are on your doorstep in just a day or two.
