If you’re looking for the Halloween costume ideas to make you stand out from the crowd, we got you! Scroll down for five fashionable costumes worth trying this year — plus, stylish finds to help you get the looks.
Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell
The fashion landscape would look very different without OG supermodels (and best friends) Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. The pair had MANY memorable looks, including their ensembles at the London Fashion Week Designer of the Year Awards in 1991. Naomi’s full Vivienne Westwood lewk is particularly worthy of a Halloween redo.
Zoë Kravitz’s Catwoman
Every generation has its Selina Kyle. For us, it’s none other than Zoë Kravitz. Although a classic catsuit might be an obvious choice, the 2022 version of The Batman included many drool-worthy looks, including her leather-trench ensemble (one of the earliest costumes revealed to the public during the production). All you need for this modern femme-fatale Halloween costume is a shiny trench, fishnet stockings, lace-up boots and, most importantly, kohl eyeliner.
