Hot for Halloween: Creative Ideas for Every Personality

Halloween is a great holiday for the fashion-forward woman; you can rock something you normally would never dream of wearing and put together seemingly unrelated items to create a themed appearance. It’s a time to be daring, fashion-wise, but you must also proceed with caution. Overdone ideas abound (French maid, kitten, playboy bunny, you get the drift), and originality is a must. We’ve compounded the following list of inventive, overlooked costume ideas to get your creative juices following.
A Peacock. What animal is more beautiful? Dress in teal and black and adorn yourself with peacock feather jewelry, a tail made of several large feathers, and even a delightful head-dress. Plus, it’s a great excuse to snag some awesome peacock accessories to wear all year round.
Candy-corn. Its’ seasonal without being stereotypical, and age-appropriate to wear in front of all the trick-or-treaters. Plus, it is super simple to put together. A white hat, yellow dress, and orange leggings go together to create an almost edible-looking treat!
A classic actress. Luscious curls, serious lip-liner, and a 1940’s dress are standard for this costume. Whether you are Rita Hayworth or Audrey Hepburn, you are bound to look fabulous. Pick a star with your hair and eye color and go for it.
Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio, perfect for a couple. You want to look pretty, and he wants to wear sweatpants…what to do? It’s easy to convince your guy to dress like a baseball great while you get to have all the glitz-n-glam of Marilyn. An excellent compromise!
