6 WAYS TO TURN YOUR ESSENTIAL VINTAGE ITEMS INTO TOTALLY RAD HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

Posted on October 22 2015


If your idea of dressing up doesn't involve a lot of effort or too much gore, we've got just the thing for you. Our wondrous staff have come up with the very best Halloween costumes using amazing vintage items

1. Zombie Bride
How many times have you stared longingly at a vintage bridal gown trying to justify a reason to get one even though your SO hasn't put a ring on it? Halloween’s the perfect excuse! You could either have a Friends style night in reminiscent of The One With All The Wedding Dresses or splatter it with blood and have a night on the tiles! Zombie Bride Halloween Costume 1. Every bride needs a stunning veil to complete his or her look – shop here
2. And of course the oh so important gown – shop here
2. If staying in is a bore, gore up your dress with some fake blood and have yourself a night to remember – shop fake blood here

2. The Addams Family
If you wanna make your Halloween outfit a family affair this year, you can’t go wrong with one of weirdest ones out there, the Addams Family. For an outfit that’s sure to impress check out our selection below… unless you want to go as Thing, then a costume’s not really necessary. Addams Family Halloween Costumes 1. Team a vintage winter dress with a pair of plaits and you’ve got yourself a Wednesday Addams outfit that’ll have all the cool kids running - shop here
2. Morticia Addams wouldn't be seen dead (or should that be undead?) in anything other than a black maxi dress – get yours here
3. Suit up in a vintage blazer topped off with a cravat and you’ll surely make Gomez proud – shop suits here
4. For Uncle Fester, don a big black coat and you’re good to go. Easy! – shop coats here

3. The Royal Tenenbaums
The family theme continues with our next costume idea. If black ain’t your thing turned to Wes Anderson’s iconic and sartorially blessed The Royal Tenenbaums for outfit inspiration this Halloween. The Royal Tenenbaums Fancy Dress Costume 1. If sportswear’s your game, don a vintage Adidas tracksuit and call yourself Chas – shop track jackets here
2. Richie Tenenbaum’s blazer, sweatband and sunnies combo is as easy to pull off as it is to look at Luke Wilson’s face – shop blazers here
3. One of our ultimate style icons, Margot Tenenbaum’s got us reaching for the simple shift dress and exchanging our long locks for a blunt bob – shop dresses here
4. A western shirt and a winning smile is all you need for a convincing Eli Cash outfit – shop shirts here

4. Frida Kahlo
Frida Kahlo is one of the most celebrated female artists in history and her flamboyant, iconic style is a stunning choice to emulate on All Hallows Eve. Frida Kahlo Halloween Costume 1. Designers pay homage to Frida’s style time and time again, often referencing the distinctive Mexican dresses the artist wore - find your Frida dress here
2. A flower headdress is a must for a convincing Kahlo outfit – shop here
3. Add plenty of colour and vibrancy to your outfit with a shawl or a poncho - shop here
4. Before Cara’s bushy brows got all the limelight Frida’s monobrow ruled supreme and you cannot dress up as Kahlo without one!

5. The Rocky Horror Show
If glitz and glam is your thing then get your dancing shoes on and channel The Rocky Horror Show’s besequined Columbia this Halloween. The Rocky Horror Picture Show Halloween Costume 1. A top hat and bow tie to top off that sequinned look are a must – shop here
2. Gold, gold and more gold is key when it comes to Columbia’s jacket – we’ve got just the thing here
3. And of course, sequins on sequins on sequins (ahh we’re in heaven) – shop here

6. Frozen
We’re all pretty familiar with Frozen by now (especially if you’ve got kids…dear God when will they stop replaying ‘Let it Go’) and it’s still seems to be a popular outfit choice for fancy dress parties. Frozen Halloween Costume 1. For your Anna outfit, don’t get caught out in the cold! A winter dress and button up boots are perfect for your princess outfit – shop here
2. A fisherman jumper, some black card and a carrot. Olaf done – shop jumpers here
3. For the ultimate ice queen, pair a long flowing maxi dress and some silk gloves - shop here
