Party This Halloween in a Little Black Dress

Who doesn’t love dressing up for Halloween? If you’re struggling with costume ideas, I recommend emulating one of these five famous black dresses. Each one, in my opinion, is a gift from the fashion gods. They range from classic timelessness to goth beauty.

Audrey Hepburn’s Dress in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”


As “Holly Golightly,” Hepburn elegantly donned a famous black haute couture dress while glamorously strolling 5th Avenue early in the morning. Achieve the same look with a black structured sleeveless maxi dress.

Complete your look with elbow-length gloves, a long strand of pearls, and a long sleek cigarette holder.

Marilyn Monroe’s LBD


Pull off Marilyn Monroe’s “lovesome buxom blond” look in an off-the-shoulder Little Black Dress (LBD), it’s sexy, and you will have everyone looking at you. It’s transitional, so it’s more than just a costume. You can wear it to other events, too. The perfect LBD.

Complete this look with a diamond (real or fantasy) necklace, blond wig, and some strappy heels.

Jackie O.’s LBD


Achieve Jackie O’s timeless look with an elegant puff-cut or form-fitting little black dress. They’re versatile, and you can use it again and again for different occasions. Timelessness never goes out of style.

Morticia’s Black Mermaid Dress
