5 Simple Ways To Dress Like A Style Icon This Halloween


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, Real Love

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.


Mary J. Blige, Not Gon' Cry


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.


En Vogue, Giving Him Something He Can Feel

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, Don't Touch My Hair


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.


Rihanna, Work


Work like Rihanna in this look from her video for her summer smash, “Work.”  Rihanna went with a Tommy Hilfiger Rasta colored knit dress, but good thing PrettyLittleThing.com created a similar dress for a fraction of the cost.  Pack on a few cocktail rings, and this green lip color by Kat Von D.  If you don’t mind splurging, add the actual Creepyyeha designed pink latex collar Rihanna wore in the video to your accessories collection.

Have a happy Halloween!
