Halloween costumes tend to go one of two ways: either all-out silly or a “sexy” version of something like the devil, a black cat or a witch.
Here at Lady Wimbledon we decided that Halloween shouldn’t have to mean your style goes out the window. So, we’ve come up with ten chic outfit ideas to help you celebrate Halloween in style.
Have fun with your make up and create Cleopatra’s striking eyes. The perfect excuse to wear your favourite LBD and style with arm cuffs and plenty of gold jewellery. Add a few braids and beads to your hair and you’re done!
2. Cruella de Vil
Disney’s villain Cruella de Vil is perfect Halloween inspiration. All it takes is hairspray, bold lips, red heels and your gorgeous faux fur coat. Plus it’s the perfect excuse to party with your pooch!
3. Karl Lagerfeld
Don your sleekest blazer and darkest shades. Chanel’s lead designer, Karl Lagerfeld, loves black on black – definitely Halloween appropriate.
4. Black Swan
Natalie Portman in the twisted film, Black Swan, makes for a dangerously mesmerising character. A tutu and feathery eye make up will create this look easily.
5. Coco Chanel
Audrey Hepburn is overdone; why not go for Coco Chanel instead? A tweed jacket and plenty of pearls will ooze 1920s glamour.
6. Frida Kahlo
Show off your cultural side with art icon, Frida Kahlo. Go wild with your eyebrows and let flowers bloom in your hair. Wear with a bold, patterned dress – Mexican style.
7. Jessica Rabbit
Stand out in red as Jessica Rabbit. Think glitz, glamour and sparkle.
8. Comic Book Girl
This fun Halloween costume doesn’t require much more than face paint but creates a look to be noticed. Add a bright wig for the perfect finishing touch.

9. Melted Barbie
Dressing up like Barbie is a little girl’s dream. But melted Barbie has a dark side for grown up girls’ with a twist.
We love Stephanie M Ledda’s tutorial:
10. Porcelain Doll
If Barbie’s too pink for you, try a creepy porcelain doll instead.
