YOUR ULTIMATE HALLOWEEN COSTUME INSPIRATION

Halloween is just around the corner. If you still struggle to find the perfect (or most fashionable!) costume, this is your guide.

 

The Fashion Icon

Kim Kardashian and blogger Bryan Boy gave their best when dressing up as Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. You want to match with your boyfriend or bestie? Follow the example of Josh Duhamel and Fergie who showed up at a Halloween party as Karl Lagerfeld and his cat Choupette. The key to success: The more signature elements the icon features, the easier it is to imitate the look.

The Skull

Even though you will not be the only one who goes  for a skull on October 31st, a slight modification of your make-up can make your look unique. What about only painting half the face? Youtube’s beauty gurus teach you how to create a rainbow skull or a Mexican inspired version.

The Movie Character

If you are a kind and graceful person 364 days a year, this is your chance to slip into the role of the villain for a day. Vice versa, you can also discover and parade your royal side for Halloween. Regardless of whether you decide for an outfit inspired by Cinderella or Maleficient, be aware that those looks require quite an effort to prepare.

The One-Piece

Full body suits or one-pieces are the solution for the lazy kids out there. You can easily merge with your greatest passions: You have a weakness for avocados? Do it like blogger Aimee Song! Love teddy bears? Go for that fluffy costume! If you celebrate outside, for instance at New York’s Halloween Parade, a fleece onesie keeps you warm.
