Dress Up! Fall’s Boldest Looks are Perfectly Pitched for Style Shapeshifters

We’re one week into October, which means Halloween is right around the corner. If you’re anything like us, you’ve had your costume picked out since January, but for those of us who have barely had time to even think about what we’re eating for dinner tonight (we get it), some inspiration might come in handy. Enter Chanel, Gucci, Dior, and the rest of our favorite designers. From a Bowie-inspired jumpsuit designed by Stella McCartney, to an 80s bodysuit from Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello that will have you getting physical, and even a NASA spacesuit from Balenciaga, there are plenty of options to choose from when you say “Boo” on Oct. 31. Personally, we’d kill for the Jackie-Kennedy-esque black Chanel powersuit and matching designer bag. After all, to look your best, you should be dressed by the best. Check out all of these costume ideas and more below.
