The Guide to Having a Haute Halloween
Halloween is just around the corner and in lieu of dressing up as ghouls and goblins, we’re erring on the side of fashion. With so many notable fashion figures out there with style we’re dying to emulate, we’re gearing up to have a Haute Halloween! Here are our fave fashionista Hallow’s Eve finds to make sure you look hip and haute this spooky weekend.
Karl’s uniform is instantly recognizable to any fashionista. And, being relatively easy to emulate, we’re loving how surprisingly low-key it is to dress up as the one and only Karl for the night. An added bonus? You’ll definitely re-wear pieces from the costume. (Well,except for the wig!)
The iconic head of J. Crew has a slick, preppy style you would expect the head of such a brand to rock. Her outfits are the perfect blend of masculine and feminine and always accessorized to be perfectly and amazingly chic. We’ve obviously chosen an outfit that’s head-to-toe J. Crew – it may seem a little indulgent for a costume, but you’ll definitely reuse these pieces often for everyday wear. Or, try using one J. Crew piece as inspo and find cheaper options for the rest of your costume. Don’t forget to style your hair into the slicked back chignon that’s part of her signature look, to wear the coat over your shoulders and her square black glasses, of course!

The legendary and beloved street photographer for the New York Times sadly passed away earlier this year and what better way to pay tribute to him than to replicate his wonderfully functional and unassuming everyday outfit? We all know and love his treasured blue blazer, and the rest of his ensemble is relatively easy to copy. Sling a camera over your neck and you’ll be ready to take photos of your friends all night.
Why not be a princess for Halloween? And we don’t mean wearing a pink puffy dress and a shiny gold crown, but rather to take the haute route and be the most stylish princess of them all – Kate Middleton. Her classic yet modern style is revered the world over and easily replicated with a smart dress, pumps, and a regal fascinator. Royalty, indeed.
The living fashion legend is what we aspire to be when we’re in our older years. She’s bold, beautiful and absolutely outrageous in the best way possible. Her business roots in textiles show with her fascination with prints, patterns and adorned everything. Don’t forget to over-accessorize and of course, top it all off with her signature huge, round glasses. Long live Iris and her fashion savvy!
