With Halloween just around the corner, the one night a year where you can dress up AND get loads of candy is quickly approaching. While there are so many costume ideas out there, we thought we’d round up our favorite #GIRLBOSS inspired ones. After all, isn’t that what we’re all trying to be in life?
- WONDER WOMAN Forget Superman, this year has been all about Wonder Woman. With the box-office hit smashing records and cementing itself in film history, you can’t go wrong with dressing up as the leading lady of this movie. Paste the gold Wonder Woman emblem on a red leotard, pair it with blue leggings/skirt detailed with white stars, accessorize with gold arm cuffs and headband and finish it off with some statement red shoes.
- AUDREY HEPBURN Not only was she an iconic Hollywood actress that starred in classics such as Roman Holiday, but she was also a dedicated humanitarian who worked with UNICEF and served children around the world. This timeless beauty will never go out of style. There are so many purely-Audrey looks, but perhaps the simplest: a fitted black dress with black gloves and a pearl necklace with your hair in a French twist.
- ROSIE THE RIVETER As a cultural icon of WWII, she represented the thousands of women who worked in the factories at home while men were abroad at war. These women were essential to the wartime-workforce and opened the doors for women to enter the workforce post-war. Grab a simple blue or white button up, put on your wide-leg trousers, wrap a red bandana around your head and you’re ready to conquer the world!
- HERMIONE GRANGER This Hogwarts star student and best friend of Harry and Ron is the ultimate wizard. With a sharp mind and quick wit, her knowledge is her greatest asset. Knot a red and yellow tie around a crisp white collared shirt and pull a gray v-neck sweater over top, find a gray pleated skirt and put on a pair of black Mary Janes with knee-high grey stockings to complete this look.
- COCO CHANEL As the only fashion designer to be listed on TIME Magazine’s list of the 100 Most Influential People of the 20th Century, this French icon liberated women from the “corseted silhouette” and popularized the sporty, casual chic style. Known for creating the most famous handbags and fragrances in history, Chanel altered the course of women’s fashion forever. Pull out a long-sleeved black dress, pair it with a black hat and multiple long pearl strands with pearl statement studs, and spritz on your favorite perfume!
