[infobox subtitle=”5 Style Icons for Halloween” bg=”black” color=”white” opacity=”on” space=”30″ link=”no link”]Be Iconic![/infobox]
Chances are I won’t ever get to play Holly Golightly in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” and I know I definitely won’t be part of the 90s supermodel Trifecta, but there is one thing I get to do every year. On October 31st, Halloween comes around and gives me (and you!) the opportunity to embrace another persona.
On that long-awaited night, I can be Audrey Hepburn. I can leave Parisian audiences in awe like Josephine Baker. I can embrace the spirit of style icons that have shaped fashion history. The best part? Their classic looks are exactly that– classic — and leave me with outfit staples for years to come. See, you can have your cake and eat it, too.
This year, join in on the fun, and give an ode to our favorite style icons.
When we think of style icons, the first one that comes to mind is Audrey Hepburn– Those eyebrows! Those eyes! That waist! Ah, to be Audrey! Thankfully, this year, we can be with minimal effort and an equally chic costume. While we love the world-renowned Breakfast at Tiffany’s ensemble, set yourself apart from the pack with another iconic look.
Naomi Campbell & Kate Moss
There’s a myth that says supermodels like Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell don’t get out of bed for less than $10,000. That’s why our favorite supermodel BBF’s Naomi and Kate are the definition of fabulous. This Halloween, grab your best friend and recreate this duo with a few staples from the 90s.
For Kate: Mohair Blend Jacket, Cropped stretch poplin shirt, Quilted denim mini skirt & Flair suede ankle boots; For Naomi: Checked mini skirt, Checked jacket, Knee socks & Vapor platforms (Platform possibilities are endless: Leather platform boots, Jadis-door platforms, Mulder platforms)
Josephine Bakery dazzled audiences far and wide in the 1920s. Take parties by storm and embody her spirit with your best flapper garb. Don’t be afraid to mix and match, “overdressing” isn’t even a possibility.For Josephine: Flapper dress, Fringed gloves & Hairclip
In an interview with David Letterman, Vogue’s infamous editor-in-chief Anna Wintour once joked, “I read in The New York Times this week that I’m an ice queen, I’m the Sun King, I’m an alien fleeing from District 9 and I’m a dominatrix.” Embody this #GirlBoss with Wintour’s staples. After all, nothing says, “I’m the editor of Vogue” like a pair of black over-sized sunglasses. Extra points if you rock Wintour’s classic bob.
