When it comes to classy costumes, we’ve turned to a few of our style icons for inspiration. The best thing about these costumes? The pieces we put together will remain staples in your wardrobe long after Halloween. Come November 1, you can tone down these looks for everyday wear and mix and match the pieces with other items in your closet.
As the epitome of style and class, Audrey Hepburn was the first thought that came to mind for a classy Halloween look. Diane von Furstenberg makes a perfect Audrey-esque little black dress in a classic cut. Add black pumps, red lipstick, and cat-eye shades to complete the look.
Thanks to the duchess’s affinity for Issa London, her look is not hard to replicate. With this blue Issa wrap dress, black blazer, and fun British head piece, you’ll be a spitting image of Kate Middleton herself!
The equestrian look is my personal favorite, having been an avid horseback rider for years. Is it just me, or did Ralph Lauren have this Halloween costume in mind when designing these equestrian-style leggings, boots, and hat?
Now for the most sparkly, flashy look of the bunch – the classic flapper girl. If you want to go Gatsby this Halloween, make sure to pile on the sequins, pearls, and feathers. And if your style is daring, this dress will double as a cocktail ensemble that’s sure to turn some heads!
