If you’re not into the DIY look and aren’t a fan of scary ensembles, chances are you’re a fashion girl. Want a Halloween costume that embodies cult characters from sartorially-savvy film and TV? We have a little inspiration for you…
BLAIR AND SERENA
Arguably the most stylish pair of Upper East Siders, BFFs Serena Van Der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf supply a plethora of endless style inspiration throughout Gossip Girl, making them the perfect pair to emulate this Halloween. For Blair, think structured pieces in sweet pastel shades, and steal Serena’s look with floaty silhouettes all complete with a coveted designer bag.
Ever since Wes Anderson created the brooding Margot Tenenbaum, the world fell in love with her bad girl prep style. Keeping the kohl heavy on your eyes, invest in a caramel-coloured coat and team with sporting pieces.
She’s the original Queen of TV fashion- Carrie Bradshaw epitomises the balance between style and simplicity, making her the perfect choice for an easy Halloween ensemble. Think tutus, neutral-hued dresses and that iconic faux fur coat to get her look.
As flappers go, The Great Gatsby’s Daisy Buchanan is by far the most glamourous. Grab a sequin-adorned gown and compliment with an embellished headband and decadent gloves, accessorising with vintage pearls and a pair of patent heels.
The sugary sweet Elle Woods may be a little naive, but she’s super savvy when it comes to style and her structured college outfits make her looks covetable. Try her pink two piece for the ultimate ode to her character, keeping it cute with a hat to match.
One of Audrey Hepburn’s most iconic roles, Holly Golighty is a given when it comes to fancy dress in general. Adopt her structured and sophisticated look with a black dress, and accessorise with pearls and an embellished tiara.
The bossy brat with a foul mouth and eye for social destruction, Chanel Oberlin of Scream Queen’s sharp tongue is as keen as her eye for perfect designer pairings. Anyone who has a group of friends (or minions) who use her name and dress in a similar way is worth emulating for Halloween. Keep it preppy, with feminine finishes; we’re talking structured mini skirts and frilled blouses, finished with faux fur and all the marabou feathers you can get your hands on.
From her intricate hairstyles to her ultimate fearlessness, the Mother of Dragons is a force to be reckoned with, and top of the list for all Game of Thrones fans with an eye for style. Channel her early days with flowing silhouettes and maxi dresses that incorporate tulle and cold shoulder details, or look to her dothraki era with a raw crop top, embellished belt and jogger-style trousers.
