This Halloween, channel your favorite fashion it-girls! Some characters and style icons hold a special place in your heart, and in your closet. Two NYC socialites and two seventies rock n’ roll queens: both are easy to recreate with things you probably have in your closet.
CARRIE BRADSHAW – SEX AND THE CITY
Carrie Bradshaw was the New York City fashion icon of the Nineties, but her style is timeless.
What you need: Statement shoes (Manolo Blanks optional), a tulle skirt, Carrie-level confidence
Stevie Nicks’ song “Leather and Lace” is a good guide of how to dress like her. Luckily for us, the legendary singer-songwriter’s seventies styles have become staples in our closets due to the trend’s resurgence.
What you need: Over-the-knee boots, fringe, flared denim and anything good for spinning like Stevie.
Holly Golightly – Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Right behind Coco Chanel, many credit Audrey Hepburn’s classically chic character Holly Golightly with the invention of The Little Black Dress. So thank you, Holly, for the easiest halloween costume staple ever.
What you need: Necklace with pearls, a little black dress, hair in a bun, and to call everyone “Darling” because you can’t remember their names.
Penny Lane – Almost Famous
All night you’ll be saying “No, I’m not a groupie – I’m a Band Aid!” Penny Lane captures carefree style easily goes from casually hanging out in hotels with rockstars, to rocking miniskirts between sets.
What you need: A fur lined jacket, retro sunglasses, a mini skirt, and a playlist full of classic 70’s rock and roll.
