Head below for eight easy, last-minute fashionable costumes that will win Halloween—plus the key pieces to bring them to life.
This Halloween, suit up as the stylish star of this classic '60s crime film. Playing waitress-turned-criminal Bonnie Parker, Faye Dunaway made breaking the law look impossibly chic.
Pair Bonnie's iconic beret with a short-sleeve knit and a bandana for a rebel-chic look you'll want to re-create long after Halloween.
Not sure what to do with that banged bob wig from Halloweens past? All you need to play the editor in chief of the fashion bible is a sleeveless sheath dress, statement coat, and oversize black sunglasses.
Top off a serious expression with these oversize shades and you'll be channeling front-row Anna Wintour at any Halloween party.
Finish off this two-piece ensemble—a white button-down and cropped black slacks—with a black bob wig and a swipe of red lipstick and you're good to go as Uma Thurman's famous run as Mia Wallace in this cult classic.
If you don't already have a crisp white button-down in your closet, it's a fail-safe classic to add to your wardrobe.
Apply some charcoal eyeliner and pin back your hair with a barrette, then cozy up in some vintage fur and you're unmistakably Margot Tenenbaum.
As we head into the winter months, you won't regret a vintage fur to keep you warm—and fashionable.
Why not dress up as everyone's favorite fashion girl this Halloween? Pair a plaid skirt with a blazer or coordinating sweater, add a few handfuls of shopping bags, and call yourself Cher Horowitz.
Plaid is certainly having a comeback, and the skirt is a fresh alternative to the blazer.
Take one scroll through Alexa Chung's coolest looks and it's clear the Peter Pan collar is an It-girl staple. Find a collared dress in white and black to channel your inner Wednesday Addams for some classic Halloween fun.
This shift-dress iteration is simultaneously retro and fashion forward.
Few squads can compete with the witchy foursome from the '90s cult classic The Craft. Wear any combinations of your goth-meets-grunge schoolgirl pieces for a costume that proves this look will never go out of style.
A classic pair of Docs finishes off the look—and adds a cool factor to your shoe collection.
This film has become the epitome of '80s style. Whether you prefer to go with or without leg warmers, everyone will know you're the star of Flashdance in an off-the-shoulder gray sweatshirt and big '80s hair.
You can never have too many cozy sweatshirts on standby.
