Halloween is just days away – have you pulled together a chic party ensemble yet? Though costume options for girls who prefer fashion to in-your-face sex appeal can be hard to find, we’ve scared up five cool looks for the holiday to satisfy any style maven.
In fact, you’ll keep wearing these under $100 steals even after the trick-or-treating is over.
In Character: As Pebbles Flintstone, an original cartoon cutie
Wear It: Pair Forever 21’s leopard frock with Pebbles’ signature top-knot. Add an oversized, bone-shaped accessory to channel the Bedrock vibe. After Halloween, rock the dress with an architectural heel and textured tights.
In Character: As the penitentiary’s most stylish prisoner
Wear It: Just add handcuffs and memorize your inmate number to turn Zara’s zip-front jumpsuit into a haute costume. Once the holiday is over, pair this piece with studded booties and some heavy-metal bling for a night out.
In Character: As Art Deco icon Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby
Wear It: Don a ‘20s-style headpiece and snag a glass of champagne to compliment a vintage-inspired dress. In months to come, add tough, rock-and-roll accessories to keep the frock current for fall and winter.
In Character: As celeb stylist and reality star Rachel Zoe
Wear It: Go Zoe by pairing a faux fur vest with gobs of jewelry, a voluminous tee, leather leggings, and teetering heels. When not in costume, we picture the vest with equestrian-inspired pants and boots for a more polished look.
In Character: As Anne Hathaway’s Fantine, in the upcoming film version of Les Miserables
Wear It: Distressed fingerless gloves and sooty makeup complete your costume when paired with a peasant dress as the centerpiece of this look. After Halloween, accent the dress with denim and fringed accessories for a boho vibe.
