Last year we did our first post on how to dress like an icon for Halloween. This year we’re back at it with 5 costume ideas that are realistic, timeless, and wearable. If your goal is to embody style for Halloween, you’ll love these suggestions.
Mary J. Blige has been the embodiment of great style since the start of her career. In her video for her first top 10 hit, “Real Love,” she and her dancers made baseball shirts, snap backs, and combat boots the look to have. But how fresh was she in her solo scene wearing a white pantsuit, white lace bustier, and a baseball cap? This look is effortlessly chic.
Since MJB has so many amazing style moments to choose from, we had to do a second one from the Queen. Her look for “Not Gon’ Cry” is so memorable, you’ll be sure to turn heads if you decide on this look. Plus, it’s pretty simple to execute. Throw on a pair of dark shades, a dark lip, a black scarf, and a black leather jacket and you’re good to go.
Get dolled up in this Nicole Miller red gown similar to the famous red dresses worn by En Vogue in their “Giving Him Something He Can Feel” video. Add a smokey eye, red lip, black gloves and other accessories to complete the look. Iconic!
Solange is killing the game right now in terms of style and music with her latest album, A Seat At The Table. The visuals for her single, “Don’t Touch My Hair,” instantly resonated with black girls everywhere. Try this look with tan track pants, a crop top, and the beautiful J.W. Anderson gold drop bead earrings. Throw on a wig styled with finger waves and a bright pink lip and you’re ready.
