Carrie Margot or Holly? Your Halloween costume does not need to be cliché! This year we decided to search for empowering, strong women and recreate their style to celebrate 2018 as the ultimate period of girl power. Trick or treat? No matter what you choose, make sure to say out load – girls run the world!

Minimalist Carrie Bradshaw

Every Outfit on Sex and the City is an Instagram reminiscing on iconic outfits from the famous series. We’ve picked Carrie Bradshaw’s minimalist, sleek look consisting of a spaghetti strap dress in silver and a classic clutch. This alluring look for a date with Mr. Big is also our Halloween inspo! Finish it off with Carrie’s cult curly hairstyle to make sure you won’t be mistaken for any other character.

Non-conformist Margot Tenenbaum

Ever-distanced and quiet Margot Tenenbaum from Wes Anderson’s cult movie “The Royal Tenenbaums” has become a fashion icon thanks to her recognisable and immortal outfit – a polo dress + a fur coat. Yes, we’ve gone fur-free but a cosy, faux fur coat is still on our winter must-have list. This Halloween, we pair it with a sportsy dress and smokey eye make-up. Make sure to add a hairpin!

Nana’s French “je ne sais quoi”

Parisians are also our ultimate resource when it comes to costume inspiration. You might have not watched Jean Luc-Godard’s 1962 film “Vivre sa vie”, starring Anna Karina, but trust us – it’s totally worth it! The movie tells the history of Nana who leaves her husband and a child to become an actress. Her dresscode? Ultimately chic! Godard depicts a conflicted female character who is not afraid to make difficult decisions. Nana’s style embodies French effortlessness we want to imitate on every occasion.

Acting smart as Annie Hall

Energetic, independent Annie Hall tried to live her life to the fullest, regardless of other people’s opinions. This is exactly what we want to do! Let’s face it – Annie Hall has made masculine fashion more appealing to women and the film – release of which coincided with the emergence of power dressing – continues to be regarded as Woody Allen’s masterpiece. Halloween is an ideal occasion to play with your boyfriend’s wardrobe. Take his suit, add some accessories and experiment with proportions. We’re pretty sure you’re costume will be immediately recognised.

Elegant Holly from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”

An emerging socialite – Holly – makes a living thanks to a variety of different relationships with men but by no means she is submissive. Sometimes taking advantage of the situation reflects intelligence and wittiness. Just like Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, keep it elegant and classy. Pearls, a little black dress and a pair of sunglasses? Yes, please! There’s something irresistible and effortless about the looks that are simple yet make you look like a million dollars. Try it this Halloween!
