Top 10 Fashionable Halloween Costumes
It's October, which means that orange is in
style – until Halloween's over, that is! But if you're planning
on attending a Halloween party with friends or work colleagues,
you probably don't want to show up in a pumpkin costume. Here
are some costume ideas that are so fashionable, you just might
win the costume contest for your style!
Audrey Hepburn – Audrey was one of the most stylish ladies
of the silver screen. There are many different looks you could
try, but the most popular would be her look from Breakfast at
Tiffany's: a glamorous mid-length black dress with black gloves,
flats, pearls, sunglasses, and a tiara. If you want to be more
creative, you could get ideas from another one of her films,
such as Roman Holiday, Funny Face, or Charade.
Madonna – Forget Lady Gaga. This lady was the original pop
princess. To emulate her outfit from Like a Virgin you need a
white bustier and skirt, white lace gloves, and lots of
bracelets and necklaces. For her 80s look, wear a black tank top
and short skirt, fishnets or leggings, black fingerless gloves,
ankle boots, and lots of jewelry. For material girl, you'll need
a bright pink prom dress and gloves. Curly hair or a wig and
is a must.
Mad Men – This is the perfect costume for those of you who
love vintage. For Joan, wear a brightly-colored dress that shows
off your curves with a red wig and a broach. Peggy's look , is
more preppy with collars and plaid prints, bangs and a ponytail.
For Betty you could wear a 50s homemaker dress, a cocktail
dress, or a white nightgown, along with her perfect blonde
Kate Middleton – A stylish, form-fitting knee-length dress
with mid-length sleeves is a good start, along with her huge
sapphire ring and a prim English hat. You could also find a
long-sleeved lace wedding gown from a thrift store and tailor it
to look like her fabulous dress.
Coco Chanel – Ms. Chanel was all about minimalism. If you
wear a vintage long-sleeved black dress and a pearl necklace,
you're there. Alternatively, you could wear a tailored skirt
suit in black and white tweed.
Donatella Versace – The essentials for this costume are a
long platinum blond wig and a spray tan or bronze foundation.

all you need are dark leggings, a white turtleneck, a dark
blazer, and knee-high boots. Accessories include a black riding
cap or top hat, white or black gloves, a riding crop and a hobby
Black Swan – Upstage all the ballerina costumes with this
unique idea. You need a black leotard, black tulle skirt, pink
ballet tights, ballet shoes or flats, and a tiara. Dress it up
with black feathers and black stage makeup around the eyes.
Gossip Girls – This is a great look if you want to throw
something together from your closet of fashionable clothes.
Serena's look is boho chic, with lots of long necklaces,
tailored jackets, and skinny jeans. On the other hand, Blair's
look is preppy, polished, and ladylike – she always wears
dresses and skirts. If you are a fan of the show, this should be
an easy costume to pull off.
