Looking for a fabulously stylish costume for your North Shore party? If you and your partner are looking for a “couple” of costumes that are sure to be frightfully entertaining, Sheridan Road, has three of this year’s most dynamic duos.
Since news of their engagement, the union between Prince William and Kate Middleton has entranced millions worldwide. This Halloween, dress up as this year’s “it” couple and take your Halloween party attendees on a trip to Great Britain. Transform into Kate Middleton by recreating her now infamous satin blue dress, pairing it with black heels, a sapphire engagement ring, and a lustrous brunette wig. For gentlemen looking to become a royal, simply recreate the Irish Guard’s Mounted Officer’s uniform and Guard of Honour sash Prince William donned on his wedding day with a red military jacket, mock medals, and a royal blue sash.
If your looking to take a flight elsewhere, than slip into something a little more uniform with ABC’s new hit drama: Pan Am. The pilot/stewardess combination has been a Halloween go-to for ages, but with the popularity of the television show’s portrayal of the “high life” gaining more traction, the retro look of the Pan Am pilot and stewardess has gone from festive to stylish. For women, try an electric blue mid-length pencil skirt and blazer, white gloves and a bowler bag. For men that want to steer their way into a suave pilots uniform, accessorize a tailored black suit with aviators, cufflinks, and pilot’s wings.
For those that want to stay a little more grounded this Halloween, then take a cue from the good old days of Madison Avenue. Envision yourself strolling into the room as the charming Don Draper or the gorgeous Betty, from AMC’s award-winning drama Mad Men. Fellas can get Don’s signature debonair look, with a well-tailored suit, thin tie and black belt, and ample amounts of pomade. For Betty’s Grace Kelly-chic aesthetic, all one needs is a gorgeous cocktail dress, pin-up hair and make up, and plenty of attitude. —Meryl Fulinara
