I love Halloween, but getting invited to a costume party seriously get’s me flustered. I mean, I could just go out and by a stupid expensive, overly sexual, slutty pirate costume, right? WRONG. Ha, Ha…. Gone are those days that a slutty nurse, a slutty cat, a slutty mouse, a slutty clown, or a slutty witch is gonna work! I’m so over it.
These days, Halloween costumes should be clever and witty and hopefully about 70% of your get up can be worn again in a normal setting. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one in this boat so I thought I would do a little post on 3 different Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffany’s Halloween costumes that are set apart from the expected, are super chic and seriously cute!
Look #1 Tuxedo Shirt:
I love this scene in the movie-That mask is to die for and an over sized tuxedo shirt-so chic. Below, I linked the best earplugs and masks Etsy has to offer! Plus I found a few tuxedo shirts that look big enough to work. I would suggest shopping in the men’s section for this look-That tuxedo shirt is huge on Audrey, plus, getting a big shirt is the only way that would be party appropriate. I also linked some nude flats. She’s barefoot in the scene, so nude flats would help give that illusion.
Look #2-Moon River
This scene stands out in the movie because the famous song, Moon River, was sung. Funny thing, this look is easy and comfortable yet chic at the same time! Oh and don’t you worry-I found a cheap ukelele too! Hair is simple with a hand towel tied like a head band at the top of the head.
Look #3 Trench Coat
Let me start by saying-trench coats are classic. They never go out of style and look incredibly classy in every situation. If this is the look you go for, know you will be able to wear a trench for decades to come. Add a black kitten heel and the right hair and you’ve got a look. The hair is very important in this one. Audrey has volume at the top with 1/2 her hair up and the other 1/2 in 2 pig tails secured near the lower back of her head. Oh and don’t forget Cat!
The 60’s makeup is marked by a perfect cat eye. Audrey’s cat eye is the epitome of that look. A liquid black eye liner is a must. Audrey wears lots of lashes and a light smokey gray effect on the lids. Brows are big and bushy but slightly shaped and not drawn in. Throughout the film she wears a pinky/nude lip stick that doesn’t compete with the eye makeup. Find a really fresh pink blush and you are set!
Hair was teased at the crown and pulled back. Audrey has tiny little bangs that probably only work on her so I would skip that! Her hair color is a medium brown with blonde/caramel thick highlights. Her hair is long and straight.
I really hope this helped some of you with your costumes! My hope is that this will be a one stop shop for your perfect Halloween look! Please leave me comments on your costume ideas-I would LOVE to hear them! Oh, and I really hope I didn’t offend anyone with my clear disapproval of sexy Halloween costumes-to each is own-if we’re at the same party, I promise I won’t say a word!
Happy Halloween and remember-keep it classy!
