Fashion Icons from Every Decade Who Make Brilliant Halloween Costumes

 

While we all roll our eyes at the run-of-the-mill Halloween costumes that surface year after year, it’s hard not to be tempted by their simple appeal when it gets down to the wire. This year, vow to do something different and resit the urge. Instead of falling for that sleazy superhero costume, reach for something a little more sophisticated. Our suggestion? A costume that pays homage to a lady who’s earned a spot in the style hall of fame. Below, discover how to emulate the most swoon-worthy icons from decades past.

 

1950s: Marilyn Monroe

 

 

Every glamour girl has dreamed of being Marilyn Monroe for a day. Well, now’s your chance. This Halloween, channel Ms. Monroe as authentically as possible with a knockout dress (clad in sequins, of course) and luxe accessories. This take is far more unique than the popular white dress look, so don’t worry about showing up in the same costume as a handful of other girls on the holiday.

1960s: Twiggy

 

 

Craving something more mod? Piece together a swingin’ 60s ensemble with Twiggy vibes. The supermodel was known for her out-of-the-box style and quirky flare, so don’t hold back when styling your look. Opt for bold colors, statement prints and accessories that start a conversation. This is your excuse to pull out those sparkly booties you regret buying last fall. They will look swell paired with a shift and round frames.

1970s: Diana Ross

 

 

While she was widely known for her one-of-a-kind voice, Diana Ross also had a fashion sense like no other. Sport a statement-making costume inspired by the iconic songstress that embodies the bold style unique to the 70s. We suggest taking a risk and trying a jumpsuit accessorized with an unexpected clutch and a hat with lots of attitude.
