Sometimes the perfect Halloween costume is all about the details – temporary hair dye, face paint on fleek or a striking accessory.
The beauty of buying quality jewelry for your Halloween costume is that you know it'll last. After the killer party you're going to, you'll still have a fabulous accessory to wear with a million other outfits.
1. Jungle cat
Whether it's the "Mean Girls" cat costume, a short dress and cat ears, or a full-out feline getup, cats are a popular Halloween costume at any age. This year, you can be a jungle cat of sorts with enough animal print attire. Find a pair of leopard or cheetah print leggings and a top with a similar pattern. If you're going to an outdoor event, you may want to wear a layer of black clothes under your wild outfit. Add a Gold-Plated Black Resin Cuff Bracelet to your wrist and a few whiskers to your cheeks, which can be done easily with eyeliner. Don't forget to pick up a pair of kitty ears for the costume, or you'll just look like Fran Drescher in "The Nanny."
The Cleopatra costumes that you can find in stores have many accessories included, so you can make it a one-step process if you go that route. To make your own costume, buy a sleek white gown, a statement collar necklace and Sterling Silver 18K Gold Plated Fancy Cuff Bracelets.
Are you a good witch or a bad witch? Either way, accessories and props will make or break your costume.
If you're channeling your wicked ways, find a long black dress and a pointed witch hat for the occasion. Carry a broomstick to give your costume even more dimension. When you're putting this costume together for a spooky party, add a Sterling Silver Moon And Stars With Cubic Zirconia Pendant to your outfit.
Good witch costumes often mimic Glinda from "The Wizard of Oz." This is done with a poofy ball gown in pastel colors, a tiara and a magic wand. Curl your hair and use sparkly makeup to complete the look.
Dressing up like a hippie is easy if you raid local thrift stores and vintage shops for clothes that fit the time period. If you buy a costume, it'll likely involve tie-dye and bell bottom pants. Psychedelic paisley patterns, unbuttoned vests and headbands are also popular with store-bought costumes. You can likely compile a similar or more impressive outfit using your imagination and creativity. Hippies in the 1960s and 1970s were all about peace and love. To channel this sentiment, deck yourself out with peace sign jewelry. Think about walking around barefoot, depending on your destination for the evening, or making a crown of flowers for your hair.
5. Audrey Hepburn
When people think of Ms. Hepburn, the first image that comes to mind is probably that outfit from "Breakfast at Tiffany's." You know the one – black dress, cigarette holder, stunning pearl necklace. It's a reasonable costume to throw together at the last minute if you think you can pull it off. Find a sleeveless black dress and pull your hair up into a bun. You need a diamond-looking hair barrette and a long pearl necklace to complete the look. If possible, get a cigarette holder from a costume store to remain authentic to Audrey Hepburn's style.
Whether it's a male or female who plans to dress up like a member of the Armed Forces, the costume can be as simple as a camouflage outfit and a few accessories. Look for a helmet, sturdy boots and a stylish dog tag necklace.
