5 Famous Little Black Dresses to Wear for Halloween

If you’re like me, you dread shelling out dough on a costume every Halloween that you’ll only wear once. But with the right accessories, your favorite little black dress can make a sexy, simple Halloween costume.

Need examples? Well, I’ve compiled 5 famous black dresses to help inspire your costume this year! They are:

Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”


Topping off our list is perhaps the most famous black dress in history. The real thing sold for more than a million dollars at auction in 2006. But with a floor-length gown and a few accessories, like elbow-length gloves and a string of pearls, it’s easy to emulate.

Maria Von Trapp from “The Sound of Music”


Don’t want to end up one of several Audreys at your costume party? I recommend choosing a less-common character. If you have a fit and flare dress and a white button down shirt, you already have what you need to become Maria Von Trapp.

Jackie Kennedy Onassis’ Black Halo Dress


Copying this look is great for emulating Lady Jackie O, but it’s also perfect for a more modern look. Meghan Markle recently showed her appreciation for this classic little black dress.

Wednesday Addams’ Shirt Dress


A shirt dress and long black pigtail braids make for a spooky classic look this Halloween.

Cruella de Vil’s Slinky Midi


If you already have a trendy black midi and a white fur vest or coat, you’ve got a Cruella de Vil costume. Add a red lip and elbow gloves for an extra touch.

Styling a Little Black Dress for Halloween

Already have an LBD in your closet that you’re dying to wear, but that doesn’t fall within any of these themes? A leather jacket and a set of costume teeth make for an easy vampire costume.
