2020 Pop Culture Halloween Costumes

I doubt any of us will be attending Halloween parties this year due to COVID 19, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still dress up to have a little fun. Just like last year, I broke down 4 celebrity looks to create Halloween costumes I can get behind.

Reese: Wig, Glasses, Earrings, Sweater, Jeans, Book Club | Shea: Blonde Wig, Necklaces, Ruffle Top, Jeans, Tennis Shoes

Reese Witherspoon is an actress and media mogul. She has a fun and relatable approach to fashion. To create her “costume,” I paired one of her favorite staples, a gingham top, with medium blue skinny jeans. You can accessorize with hoop earrings, tortoise shell glasses, a short blonde wig and a book from her book club to really sell it.

Shea McGee, the owner and designer behind Studio McGee, is having a great year, okay, more like great half-decade. Her Target collaboration is a hit, her book is about to be released AND she has a new Netflix show. Much like Reese, her style is approachable and is easy to replicate. She likes flowery tops and dresses, items that have a flowy component and jeans. For her, I paired a ruffled sleeve top with destructed jeans and tennis shoes. Complete with a long blonde wig and layered necklaces to nail the look.

RBG: Earrings, Gavel, Necklace, Robe | Greta: Wig, Hoodie, Jeans, Poster

Ruth Bade Ginsburg was a supreme court justice who championed women’s rights and became a cultural icon. Dressing up like RBG would be an honor and, I hope, will remind us of her accomplishments and dedication. RBG was known for wearing various neck pieces which had different meanings (here’s a short article if you’re interested), so the main part of her costume will be a lace necklace that looks like RBG’s favorite one. You’ll need a judge’s robe and gavel to complete the look. Add some large emerald earrings and pull your hair into a tight bun and you’ve got yourself RBG.

Greta Thunberg is a 17 year old climate change activist. The key to her costume is to copy her signature long braid pulled to the side and a climate change poster. Pair with a hoodie, jeans and sparse make up to complete the look.
