Channeling sultry burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese may be far from your everyday look, but it's perfect for Halloween. Just get a little naughty with a bustier ($30, originally $65), garters and knee-highs, then take cover in a plush, feather jacket and a full, tulle skirt ($62). Finish with a fabulous pair of heels, and don't forget your gloves and jewels. Click the items above to shop the look!
There are few movies that made a bigger impact than Avatar, and there are probably few things cooler than a leggy, blue Avatar chick for your own Fabby Halloween. Now, don't panic; getting a Na'vi's look is easier than it looks. Just think of a serene blue palette and feathered jewels. Try abstract printed swim separates ($18, originally $39), then add shredded leggings ($38), and pile on the eclectic jewels — and don't forget your blue face paint!

Wanna set your inner she wolf free? Halloween's the perfect time to channel Shakira's she-wolf-inspired vixen — that's what PartySugar's planning on. And, if you want to too, it's super-sultry and not hard to pull off. All you need is a cutout leotard ($42) and black leggings. For the advanced route, feel free to mismatch nude and black bodysuit pieces, then finish with gold jewels, funky heels, and a wolf mask ($12) or blond wig — how's that for a Fabby, hot Halloween? Shop the pieces above to get started, then get inspired with Shakira's video after the jump.
If costumes aren't in the cards for you this Halloween, I suggest you get festive with some of Net-A-Porter's eerily decadent delights. They've put together their favorite Halloween-inspired items and the selection is filled with luxurious items from the likes of Luella, Burberry, and Chloe, to name a few. From spider web dresses to studded gloves, their offerings will leave you smiling and looking Halloween fabulous. Heading to a costume gala? I suggest you don this slick Alexander McQueen Fairy-tale Dress ($4,095). Note the creepy yet sexy mythical print. Double, double, toil and trouble . . .
Want to be cute as a button come Halloween? Betty Boop may be old (circa 1932) but she's still got it. I was BB a few years ago and it was a cheap, flirtatious costume. The key pieces are the black curly wig, a bustier neckline, a garter belt, and gold hoops and bangles. The rest can be left to the imagination. Like any true fashion-loving gal, BB had a large closet. She was seen in little pink dresses, festive attire, sexy LBDs, even cowgirl outfits, but the BB I admire the most is the simply sexy one. Oh, and for this, you may want to invest in some boob inserts — BB's cleavage was one of her proudest assets.
The Queen of Rock 'n' Roll is here to make your Halloween a blast. It's time to release that inner diva and shine as one of the sultriest female rockers in history. Tina is known for her legendary legs, lips, and hair, so play up those features in fringe and sequins — definitely something short, sexy, and playful. Maximize your stems in a pair of sexy high heels, don a shaggy Tina wig, and shake your bon-bon!
Twiggy may no longer scream mod queen, but circa 1960s, she was highly popular for her high-fashion mod look. If you're looking to mimic someone with a bold, youthful signature style this Halloween, Twiggy is your girl. Inspired by the mod creations of English fashion designer Mary Quant, the supermodel wore everything from mini skirts to shift dresses, go-go boots to funky print dresses, sequins to plaid. Twiggy, whose real name is Lesley Hornby, wasn't merely known for her stick skinny body (hence the childhood nickname) and quirky fashion sense; she also spearheaded the application of fake lashes under bottom lashes and the androgynous pixie haircut. Groovy.
It's a sign. I'm trying to decide on my pup Annabelle's Halloween costume, and after a weekend of pet store perusing, we're leaning toward these adorable bat wings. Since my little Frenchie is black, the black bat wings looked so simple and chic. Then, today I find these Giles & Brother Tiny Bat Studs ($78). Done and done. If you've decided to go costume-free this Halloween, can I beg you to be a wee festive and indulge in these or some other spooky jewels?
A Fabby Halloween isn't complete without a tribute to Betsey Johnson. The designer is a spot-on reflection of her fun, retro-inspired designs. From her spunky fashions to her signature red lips, there's no doubt you'll have a ball being Betsey. Leave everything to the imagination. Show off your love for the '80s in a fluffy, bright dress and flirty heels. If dresses aren't your thing, grab some crazy leggings and pair them with a tunic and a big belt. Remember to tousle and braid your blond wig. Starting practicing your cartwheels. Flash those peace signs. Whew! No wonder Betsey stays in such good shape.
If you're looking for an effortlessly chic costume this year, look no further than Jackie O. Unfortunately she left us in 1994, but her legacy and style will live on forever. Among the signature pieces in Jackie's closet were oversize round sunglasses, pillbox hats, pearls, a khaki trench coat, black flats, bow headbands, and cropped pants. Clearly this woman loved fashion and the fashion world loved her back. Whether she was performing her first lady duties or vacationing on a yacht with her second husband Aristotle Onassis, Jackie was always put together — the world never caught her in sweat pants. Strut a day in this amazing woman's shoes; it might just change your fashion mentality forever.
