It’s finally that time of year: Halloween. We get to leave it up to our creative minds, not ‘what’ but ‘who’ we will be dressing as. The only downfall to Halloween is the tackiness, and I think we are in agreement when I say no one likes being surrounded by tacky. Take a deep breath, you are about to learn how to make this Halloween your most chic yet.
Thinking of being a cat? No, maybe a hippie! Well get those ideas out your head, because they’re nothing but recycled and often end up not being done properly. The most important thing to remember is that whoever you are on Halloween, you need to represent them in the highest way possible, so make sure that you will be able to pull it off. That being said, put your scrambling mind to ease. Here are some fresh ideas for a chic holiday.
Anne Hathaway perfectly demonstrates the concept of being chic. Take a look at her as Catwoman. Sure, she may be wearing a skin-tight leather onesie, but she looks classy while dressing the part. Instead of wearing that low-cut leather leotard, vouch for a higher neck line for a classy yet chic approach and still look haute.
All you need for this haute-Halloween look is a pair of noir or leather leggings, a matching top, some black heels or boots and a little mask.
Victoria Beckham does a pristine job at exemplifying a chic look. Yes, you can add some accessories to make your costume a little more easily recognizable, but note how you can take everyday clothing and turn them into a costume. Sometimes it is better to be simple than to be overly complicated and look tacky. Although that may be unintended, simplicity should be an individuals “go to” if they are second guessing the detail to their costume.
To complete this look, all you’ll need a killer shift, along with a black belt and boots. Perhaps a little more bling would be a compliment to the costume, but remember less is in fact more.
3. Native American
Here are my favorites – RZ and the Native American costume. There’s always the typical native american outfit of a brown dress with booties or moccasins and some type of feather. Notice how Rachel Zoe took this simple costume to the next level by pairing a leather dress, suede bag, a collar style necklace and a headband. She took many simple pieces and combined them to create a chic outfit for the Halloween party she was attending.
Take it from the fashion icon herself, and pair a leather dress with simple face paint and accessories to be the most chic Native American out there this Halloween.
While it is important to think outside of the box in order to stand out, think simply this Halloween and spice up your idea with fab statement pieces in order to stand out from the crowd. Another important part of Halloween is to add your personal touch in order to individualize your costume. Remember to dress the part, but make sure it is something you will be able to successfully pull off, and don’t forget to have a haute Halloween!
