Through the Decades: Halloween Costumes
Halloween is just around the corner which gives us little time to think of costumes. Use items already in your closet to mimic a fashionable look from your favorite decade.
Channel your inner Fred Astaire and Humphrey Bogart by putting on the classiest of suits. The ‘20s were all about well-tailored clothing to fit the “gentleman’s aesthetic." A sharp suit jacket and dress pants will have you snapping your fingers and doing the Charleston.
‘50s fashion was all about being demure, elegant and classy like Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. Put on a classic red lip and a pair of flowing shorts that accentuate your waist. Most importantly, walk around confidently and command the room you’re in with this graceful look.
The ‘70s were about having fun and dancing the night away in funky pants and tight shirts. Start your disco look with a pair of light blue flares and a tight top. Complete the look with a retro trucker jacket and you’re ready to have “Night Fever” with the Bee Gees.
The ‘80s were big and colorful with unique style icons such as Boy George and David Bowie confidently displaying their individuality in the spotlight. Have fun with this colorful look with bold patterns and unconventional clothing pairings.
