Arguably one of the most popular Halloween costumes of all time, Holly Golightly’s look is made to replicate. The long black dress, costume jewelry, men’s tuxedo shirt and blue sleep mask are so iconic in their simplicity. But there are two other looks in the film that I find are often looked over, though they’re no less iconic. Here are four different ways that you can become Holly Golightly this Halloween.
This costume is what all my dreams are made of.
This year, the Lizzie McGuire movie turned 15, and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than to turn myself into an Italian pop star. This ensemble has six total pieces, which compared to my some of my other costume projects, is pretty complex. It’s also on the more expensive side, and that’s because literally no one owns this much purple. This look is as cost-efficient as it gets, while also staying true to the original film. And as always, this is a no-sew project. All you’ll need is a hot glue gun. Without further ado, kicking off our 2018 Countdown to Halloween is Lizzie McGuire!
For renters, decorating can be a struggle. Most city dwellers have zero room to store decorations off-season, are moving in 12 months because the rent will go up, and have no money or time to spare decking the halls. I have spent the better part of six years trying to solve this problem, and I’m proud to say that I can now successfully decorate my space for every major holiday using only two large Tupperware bins. Of all the major holidays, Halloween is by far the least expensive to prepare for. Here are a few ideas and easy DIY decor projects for you to try in your space. Enjoy!
Coco Chanel’s legacy is more than her brand. Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel lived an amazing life. After her mother passed away, she was abandoned by her father and went to live in an orphanage with her younger sister. It was here that she eventually learned how to sew. She faced countless hardships both personally and in business. Yet, she went on to become the most revolutionary designer of her time; her couture is still making millions today. This costume is original, fun and even better in black and white. I already owned everything I needed for this look. Chances are that you do too. Start by grabbing every pearl you own, and the personality will follow. Read More
I first discovered this costume idea years ago on Camille Styles. I’ve always wanted to try it, but something always took its place. This year, I decided it was time to go for it and make the costume my own. If you check out the original look, you’ll see that the makeup and hair are very minimal. After a few minor adjustments to the costume, I wanted to bring the bling from this costume onto my face and hair, and came up with this fun glitter makeup look. If you’re not into Halloween, this makeup also works for festivals, concerts or even a crazy fun Friday night. If you want to see more ideas like this one, check out camillestyles.com.
