With Halloween just a few weeks away, now is the time to start planning. Sure, it’s easy enough to wear the standardshirt, trousers, and facepaint of a skeleton, but seriously, do you really want to look like every other guy arriving at the party? Whether you are a film fanatic or have those last minute party plans. Here we have devised the quick and easy outfits to get you through this Halloween season.
The Fonz – Happy Days
For those of you that want to hold on to a bit of credibility and dignity, you can’t fail with a Fonz/ Danny Zuko outfit. Get a decent leather jacket and team it with a plain white crew neck t shirt, some indigo jeans and Converse Chuck Taylors. Finish it off with a black quiff wig. If you’re not blessed with dark, full hair and you’ve got a slick outfit you can wear on any other day of the week.
Jules Winnfield – Pulp Fiction
If you’re an office worker, you probably have a black suit hanging in your wardrobe. This is perfect for creating a Pulp Fiction/ Men In Black look, we’ve gone for the Jules Winnfield just because you can walk around saying “say what again, I dare you, I double dare you motherf*cker”.
Tom Cruise – Top Gun
For all you Tom Cruise fans, you can never go wrong as dressing like you stepped out of Top Gun. A film which has kept it’s credibility from the 80’s, it’s an easy outfit to keep you warm this Halloween, especially if your plans involve a pub crawl. Featuring our very own favourite Alpha Industries Bombers, pair the jacket with Edwin ED55 jean. Then, opt for your Dr Martens classic shoes and a pair of Aviator glasses. This outfit is easy enough to wear when the Halloween season is over. As bombers are a huge must have for theAutumn season, take this ‘fancy dress’ as a wardrobe investment.
Stranger Things – Johnathon Buyers
A rising star of Netflix, Stranger Things is the 80’s Horror twist we are all watching this October. For this Halloween, we knew we had to jump on the fandom. While Johnathon Buyers was out battling the upside down. His outfits always consistently gave us the feeling of nostalgia. For this Halloween, we wanted to relive the 80’s. When building for this look opt for a Denim Jacket with a borg collar. Make sure it’s layered with a check shirt and plain t shirt. Then, finish the outfit with a pair of trainers to get the full look.
American Pyshco – Patrick Bateman
An iconic flick from the 1990’s, American Psycho is the perfect mix of sophistication and horror. With Patrick Bateman constantly changing the game of businesswear throughout the film, it’s no doubt this Halloween costume take probably take you right through to work after the spooky season. To get the look, simply opt for the light blue shirt and red or grey tie of choice. Remember to add braces for the extra 90’s vibe. Then, pair the shirt with a pair ofblack smart trousers and a pair of leather black Chelsea Boots.
Halloween doesn’t always have to be daunting for yourself or your bank account. Get creative and mix around what you already own, or even, make your next Halloween purchase a wardrobe essential. So for this Halloween, if you can’t get enough of Stranger Things or don’t want to dress like every other ghoul at the party simply follow this guide.
