October is here, which means Halloween is fast approaching and it’s officially time to start thinking about your outfit. Want to be more creative than just throwing on a cat mask, devil horns or bunny ears? We’ve taken a look back at 2018 so far to come up with the eleven costumes you can wear this year. Keep reading to find the right one for you, and shop all the pieces you need to pull it off…
1. Donna and The Dynamos in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again was the film of the summer, so what could be better than dressing up as young Donna and her Dynamos? Just grab two of your best friends, throw on a denim overall and finish the look with some serious platform boots and a karaoke microphone.
2. Penelope Cruz as Donatella Versace in The Assassination of Gianni Versace
Loved Penelope Cruz as Donatella Versace in The Assassination of Gianni Versace? Get her look with a bright pink satin dress, lace-up heels and lots of gold bling. Now all you need is a platinum blonde wig, black eyeliner and some nude lipgloss and you’re good to go.
3. Beyoncé in the APESH*T music video
Earlier this year the Carters yet again broke the internet with their APESH*T music video shot in the Louvre, so Beyoncé’s pink suit would make for a great costume this 2018. Get extra points if you do this as a couples look with your partner in a matching mint-green suit and take a poster of the Mona Lisa with you.
4. Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia in Black Panther
Black Panther will surely be one of the most popular movie references this Halloween, so do things a bit differently by going as Nakia in the Casino scene. A geo-print halterneck jumpsuit or dress paired with some metal bangles should do the trick. We’ve even got the perfect bag to go with your look: a croc effect clutch with a panther clasp.
5. Margot Robbie as Tonya Harding in I, Tonya
A sparkly leotard, ’80s-inspired puffer jacket, tights and a scrunchie is pretty much all you need to get Margot Robbie’s look as Tony Harding. Complete the styling with a permed fringe, bright purple blush and lipstick and no one will have to ask who you’ve dressed up as.
6. Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret in The Crown
Vanessa Kirby stole the show as Princess Margaret in The Crown’s second season, and now we’re stealing her look for Halloween. A checked coat, retro sunnies and other classic ’50s accessories like the neck scarf and leather gloves are enough to recreate this outfit.
7. Jodie Comer as Villanelle in Killing Eve
To be honest, we’d love to wear Jodie Comer’s iconic Killing Eve outfit everyday. If pink tulle is a bit too much for you on the regular, it will definitely make for a relevant fancy dress this year instead. Finish it off with some combat boots and everyone will get the reference.
8. The Pop’s uniform in Riverdale
All of Riverdale‘s characters will undoubtedly be popular choices when it comes to this year’s Halloween costumes. If you need a last-minute look, the uniform at Pop’s diner will be an easy and effective one to recreate with pieces you already own.
9. Dua Lipa
There’s no doubt that Dua Lipa has been the newcomer of 2018, so this Halloween we’re taking cues from one of her most popular outfits she wore on a day out in New York this summer. Your partner can go as on-off beau Isaac Carew to make it even better.
10. Saoirse Ronan as Lady Bird in Lady Bird
A pastel lace dress, preppy flats and novelty accessories make for a great Lady Bird-inspired outfit. Then use some pink hair chalk or dye and cover your right arm in a pink plaster cast to make it perfect.
11. Lana Condor as Lara Jean Covey in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
We might not be able to give you Noah Centineo, but we can give you Lara Jean’s outfit as a Halloween costume. Take a big love letter with you as a prop to reference To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before‘s main storyline and win any best-dressed competition.
