While Halloween is fun to celebrate, the spooky holiday does present a dilemma: picking the right outfit. One of the best ways you can conquer this feat is to base your look around a theme. If you’re leaning toward a flirty look, consider choosing a sexy costume like a white corset top and green mermaid skirt to channel your inner Ariel. Perhaps you have plenty of red in your closet; maybe opt for a red-dress Halloween costume like Rihanna at the 2023 Super Bowl. You can even create a white-dress costume with wings for an angel vibe. Looking for another way to stand out on Halloween? Put on your best green-dress Halloween costume.
Creating a Halloween costume with a green dress is easier than you think. You can go for the Tinkerbell fairy look, with a daring, metallic dress and a set of wings. Or consider a vintage gown with gold detailing, like cartoon-favorite-character Fiona from “Shrek.” Other popular green-dress costume ideas include a “Top Gun” flight dress, an elf, and the classic Winnie Sanderson from “Hocus Pocus.”
In case you want to go with an unconventional ensemble, you can grab a bandeau dress and yellow body paint to channel Marge Simpson from “The Simpsons” like Lizzo and Cardi B, or a sculptural maxi like Beyoncé’s Norma Kamali gown from her “Spirit” video.
Take things even a step further by dressing as your favorite celebrity, like Lisa Rinna’s tropical dress that was heavily inspired by Jennifer Lopez’s iconic Versace jungle gown worn to the 2000 Grammy Awards.
