We’ll take just about any excuse to dress up, so it’s no surprise that Halloween is one of our favorites holidays of the year! But ladies, just because you’re going to be dressing up as a character or icon doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. Gone are the days of popping on some animals ears over a skimpy outfit (Mean Girls reference anyone?) or throwing on your flares from 2005 and saying you’re a hippie. Brush off your creativity, because we can do better. Luckily, there are some perfect looks and outfits on Rent the Runway to inspire your look for this year:

1.) Are diamonds your best friend? Do you truly believe blondes have more fun? Go classic this year with a sexy and glamorous Marilyn Monroe outfit:


DRESS, Badgley Mischka; BAG: Franchi; NECKLACE: Kate Spade

2.) We told you to put away the flares, but do not discount the 70’s for a second. Make a bold fashion statement as vocal powerhouse Diana Ross and finally rock that jumpsuit that’s been hanging in your closet:


Jumpsuit, Turban, Clutch, Bracelet



3.) Feeling mod? You can’t go wrong with the conversation starting costume that is Twiggy (false lashes are a must!)



4.) Feeling daring? Rock this power outfit that the one and only Cookie from Empire would bring to life.

5.) If you REALLY want to use Halloween as an excuse to be your most fashionable self, why not go as the one and only Coco Chanel?

6.) Frida Kahlo. Beyonce rocked this look a few years back (which is basically all you need to know). Both iconic women, one standout look:


1) Milly Dress,  2) Eyebrow Gel, 3) Kenneth Jay Lane Earrings 4) Flower Crown, 5) NOCTURNE necklace,  6) Free People Skirt

7.) Netflix obsessed? (Us too). This will undoubtedly be one of the most popular picks for this year. You’ve got a safe bet and fun, quirky choice in dressing up as Eleven from Stranger Things. Plus you get to eat Eggos!


Dress, Jacket, Socks

8.) Does everyone know not to call your house on Sunday nights? Do you run around screaming “Where are my dragons?!” This Khaleesi look is just for you:
