What other way to start then with this glorious American romantic comedy?  This 1961 movie inspired our favorite clothing item: a little black dress. The dress you need for this costume is of course the Givenchy LBD. Full black sleeveless dress with white frill at the bottom. Next you need a Lanvin ribbon necklace which is a pearl necklace and has a black bow to tie the look together. Next come Sermoneta long black leather gloves which add that touch of mysterious elegance (or is it elegant mystery?). Jimmy Choo’s luxe classic black pumps are character-appropriate and wearable long after the season. Last but not least Valentino’s Sunglasses are perfect to finish off the costume.

This next DIY costume idea is also one of the most recognizable in fashion history, and also influenced by another American romantic comedy: Annie Hall, starring Diane Keaton. We’ve got got every component of this costume starting with Miu Miu white silk blouse which is topped off with Saint Laurent Mac Cape in Black felted wool. Next in line is the Coach Bleckker Swingpack bag in classic camel color. To enhance this preppy look you can top it off with a Dsquared2 Panama Hat. To finish this tomboy style with Gucci Wool Flannel Skinny Flared Pants.

Wednesday Addams

The third idea is the eternal Halloween inspiration: Wednesday Addams. Start off with a knee-length short-sleeve dress in black. For extra bite, add Givenchy’s shark tooth necklace. Define the waist with a Maison Margiela textured leather belt in black. Black Prada Mary Janes elevate the fashion cred of this gothic look. Don’t forget your treat bag! Finish the gothic glam outfit with must get a Salvatore Feragamo’s Multi-color bag.
