If you're still on the hunt for a Halloween costume and need something quick and effortless, why not go as legendary Vogue editrix Anna Wintour? For a truly Wintour-inspired Halloween look, you'll need only a few basics (all of which we're sure you can wear again). Before we get to the clothes, keep in mind that you'll need to channel Anna's signature brown bob for instant Wintour. For your outfit, start with a slim-fitting, sleeveless sheath dress (we encourage buying a great LBD that you can wear again and again throughout the season), and classic nude heels. While we're more than OK with you splurging on a pair similar to Anna's Manolo Blahnik slingbacks, we're offering up a more affordable pair for the night. Accessorize with a jeweled collar necklace and oversize black sunglasses so nobody will see your icy stares. For good measure, consider carrying along a copy of Vogue, for all those fashion neophytes that don't understand your awesome costume. Lastly — and we can't stress this enough — don't forget the ultimate Anna Wintour trademark: an unruffled, stoic expression.
