Between the streaming dramas on Netflix and classic sitcoms we’ve become familiar with thanks to reruns, we can always count on TV shows to give us some of the best ideas for Halloween costumes. Besides, it’s always more fun when someone recognizes who you’re dressed as. (Much better than having to explain your obscure costume to everyone at the Halloween party.) If you aren’t sure where to start, let us help: We’ve pulled together some of our favorite shows where the fashion is just as notable as the plot lines. Whether you love getting together with your crew to watch reality TV (hi, fellow Bachelorette fans) or are here for period dramas (Downton Abbey, anyone?), the costume ideas are truly endless…
One of the best parts of The Bachelorette (besides the drama, of course) is seeing the glamorous dresses the contestants wear. Sport a glitzy ensemble with a beaded dress and simple earrings.
You’ll feel so glamorous in this.
Available in sizes 0 to 6.
How good are these?
