Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's
This Halloween costume idea couldn't be simpler and is the perfect solution for those heading to a Halloween party straight after work. To create this look, simply don your favourite LBD, add some big sunglasses and a string of pearls, sweep hair up into a bun and that's it! Bonus point for sporting long, black gloves and accessorising with a coffee cup and a croissant.
A black cat
Cute and furry or mean and scary - the choice is yours and it's all about how you accessorise this look! For an ultra no-fuss option, just team your LBD with some black gloves, a pair of adorable cat ears, and draw on whiskers with some black eyeliner. Simple!
Cruella De Vil from 101 Dalmations
Not the nicest of characters, a Cruella De Vil costume wouldn't be complete without your little black dress, some bright red lipstick and an animal print coat. To really embrace the Disney villain's look, get a black and white wig, too! 'If she doesn’t scare you, no evil thing will…'
Wednesday Adams from The Adams Family
Want to relive your goth days? Layer your LDB on top of a white collared shirt, braid your hair into two plaits, and proceed to look miserable all evening - the perfect Wednesday Adams costume!
Looking for a simple yet scary costume idea? Go as a vampire! Dress head to toe in black, use make-up to give yourself a grey complexion and red lipstick to give the illusion of fangs. Black cape optional.
Probably the easiest costume ever (but also one of the most stylish) , all you really need to pull off this look is your little black dress, some heels, and a bit of lip gloss. Oh and don't forget to flash a peace sign and shout 'girl power!' at regular intervals.
It's a classic for a reason! A witch costume is all about the accessories - wigs, make-up, brooms, hats - add whatever you like to make your look as scary or elaborate as you like!
