    18 Halloween Costumes Stylish People Will Appreciate

    Most of these are so easy to make!

    1. Ok let's start with costumes for pairs. You can go as the Olsen Twins and look effortlessly stylish. You'll just need an oversized black outfit or a hippie chic ensemble and you're good to go.

    Extra points if you get a venti Starbucks drink as a prop.

    2. If you want to dress up with your BFF, then Cher and Dionne are the obvious choice.

    Get the Cher costume for $69.99 (available in sizes XS-XL) and the Dionne costume for $59.99 (available in sizes XS-XL).

    3. Grace Coddington and Anna Wintour are fashion legends and the perfect costume for partners or besties who are polar opposites. For the Coddington transformation you'll need a black outfit and a red wig. If you're going for the Wintour look, you'll need an elegant outfit in a neutral color, paired with big sunglasses and a bob wig.

    You can get a Grace Coddington-inspired wig for $22.99, and the Anna Wintour bob wig for $17.99. You'll also need big, black sunglasses, which you can get for $16.98.

    4. A cute and artsy fartsy idea for a couples costume is Andy Warhol and Marylin Monroe, as in the artist and the painting. For Marilyn, the main thing is the frame, face paint, and wig. For Warhol you'll need glasses and a white wig.

    You can get it all from Amazon: Face paint for $22.99, frame for $14.95, and Marilyn wig for $22.99. You can get the Warhol glasses for $9.99 and the wig for $13.06.

    5. Will Smith and Hilary Banks from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is another super stylish option. TBH your best bet is to go to your local thrift store for some sweet, sweet '90s outfits. For Will, you'll need a windbreaker, sweatpants, and a colorful cap. For Hilary, a stylish blazer, hat, and jewelry.

    6. Blair Waldorf was the queen of Constance, so it would only make sense to wear her fancy school uniform if you're trying to dress like her. For that, you'll need a plaid skirt, a shirt with a black bow, and a headband.


    You can get it all from Amazon: the skirt starting at $11 (available in sizes 0-14), the shirt starting at $9.78 (available in sizes XS-L), and the headband for $7.99.

    7. If you dress up as Margot Tenenbaum from The Royal Tenenbaums, you'll look stylish and stay warm this Halloween. All you need is a faux fur coat and a blonde wig.

    The key element to this costume is a great faux fur coat. You can get a similar coat from Etsy for $78.40, one from Nasty Gal for $100, or one from ASOS for $285. And you can get a wig from Amazon for $18.29.

    8. Carrie Bradshaw From Sex and the City was everyone's fashion inspo in the late '90s and early '00s. If you want to dress like opening credits Carrie (the most iconic one IMHO), you just need a pink top and a tiered tutu skirt.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.90+ (available in sizes 2-26).

    9. Frida Kahlo was a fashion icon ahead of her time, so it's only natural that she's part of the list. You'll need a colorful, embroidered dress and a flower crown.

    10. Since Selena was such a trendsetter, there are so many good costume ideas to pick from. But assuming everyone already owns a pair of high-waisted black pants, this is probably the easiest version. All you'll need is a blinged out bustier, a hat, and a microphone.

    11. The same can be said about style queen Lil' Kim. There are so many iconic looks to choose from that even Beyoncé couldn't just stick to one look, and instead she gave us four. However, this purple number she wore to the 1999 MTV Music Awards is probably one of her most notorious looks.

    12. You can be Marilyn Monroe from The Seven Year Itch, the wardrobe "malfunction" queen. For this, you'll need a white pleated dress and a blonde wig.

    14. Wednesday Addams is a classic, you-can't-go-wrong-with-it kinda costume. You just need a black dress with a white collar, and a black wig with pigtails.

    15. Edna Mode, the eccentric and talented superhero fashion designer from The Incredibles, is an underrated fashion icon and an excellent choice for Halloween.

    Get it from Party City for $49.99, available in sizes S-XL.

    16. If you've got the dance moves down, then you can dress up as Elvira Hancock from the movie Scarface. All you need is a sequin dress and a wig.
