All of our local celebs have a signature style that yields an easy look that can be duplicated for the scariest of holidays. Thanks to our handy chart looking like Ina Garten or Neil Patric Harris has never been easier. Here are some Halloween costume ideas to help you dress up as your favorite East End celebrity.
KITCHEN CHIC LIKE INA GARTEN
Ina Garten is rarely caught without her famous denim long sleeve button down. Her style is simple, yet easy to rock! J.Crew has the ultimate selection of denim button-downs, ranging in shades and washes. To ultimately nail the Ina Garten look, a pot or a pan from Loaves and Fishes (loavesandfishesus.com) in both hands or even a plate of chocolate chip cookies will make your costume the sweetest!
SUIT UP LIKE NEIL PATRICK HARRIS
If you’ve ever watched How I Met Your Mother, you know that nothing suits Neil Patrick Harris like a suit (and if you haven’t, I recommend you start binging it now)! Paul Stuart has the finest selection of suits to get into the spirit. You can’t go wrong with any of their pieces. Some of our favorites include the Grey Micro Weave Super 180s Wool Suit and the Super 180s Deco Pane Suit. Finding your inner Neil Patrick Harris is a suited affair!
DRESS UP LIKE EDIE BEALE
To love Edie Beale is to know that her obsession with fur coats was unreal! The one-time model and cabaret performer knew a good fur coat when she saw it. To master her posh look, the Shearling Reversible Belted Coat from Brunello Cucinelli (shop.brunellocucinelli.com) is a winner. The Watson Magnifier from Burke Decor in one hand and a book from Bookhampton in the other will be the cherries on top of this costume well-done.
PINKALICIOUS LIKE JACKIE O
The stylish and chic Jackie O never left the White House looking underdressed. One of the most memorable First Lady outfits consisted of the jacket and skirt combo in vibrant pink. Theory’s Etiennette Blazer in Good Wool in Watermelon and its matching Treeca Pant in Good Wool exudes that Jackie O vibe. Tack on a pair of white gloves to help you channel your inner Jackie O.
SPARKLE LIKE PARIS HILTON
Everyone knows that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, especially Paris Hilton. The glitzier, ritzier, and more glamorous, the better! If she could take one of everything in London Jewelers, she would! From earrings to studded chokers, her heart and eyes are attracted to glitter only. Perhaps Alice and Olivia’s Nelle Sequin Mini Dress would take this shiny look up a notch!
