5 Classic Black Dresses to Inspire Your Halloween Costume

Warm sweaters and leather boots aren’t the only fall outfits you need to be thinking about. If you’re like me and still searching for the perfect Halloween costume, check out these 5 famous little black dresses to create your own look with items from Scout & Molly’s Southlake!

Wednesday Addams

Just because it features a little black dress doesn’t mean your costume can’t be creepy!

A shirt dress or a black dress layered over a collared shirt and long pigtail braids are all you need to channel Wednesday Addams this Halloween.

Cruella de Vil


This famous little black dress might be animated, but that doesn’t mean it won’t make a simple, fun Halloween costume!

Channel your inner Disney villain in a trendy midi black dress, white vest or fur coat, and red heels. Finish the look with a bright red lip! Or, create a modern take on Cruella’s old outfit by mixing in other colors or patterns.

Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”


If you’re looking for a classy black dress Halloween costume you can assemble with items already in your wardrobe, you can’t go wrong with Audrey Hepburn’s look in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

While Hepburn’s classic Givenchy gown was floor length, any kind of all-black dress, paired with gloves, oversize sunglasses, and pearls, is enough to channel this iconic image!

Jackie Kennedy Onassis


Few looks are more iconic than Lady O’s little black dress. Add a string of pearls and white gloves to complete your throwback to Camelot.

I’m not the only one who loves Jackie’s little black dress. Kate Middleton and Megan Markle have had matching looks emulating her classic style!

Group Costume: “The Craft”


If you’re looking for an easy group costume idea, a black skirt and a white button down shirt, graphic tee, or jacket will have your group ready to go as the ladies from the 1996 supernatural horror film, “The Craft.”

Don’t Be Late to the Thriller!
