Since the COVID-19 pandemic cancelled Halloween in 2020, this year people are taking the opportunity to go all out in celebrating the spooky holiday. And especially after a year of Zoom costume parties and socially distanced trick-or-treating, Halloween 2021 should feel a lot more like it did before the pandemic.
Whether you’re going to a Halloween party this year, attending your local Halloween parade, or taking to the streets and going trick-or-treating, you’ll need a good costume and everyone knows that a full look is not complete without the right accessories. That’s why we’ve rounded up some jewelry pieces that would compliment your Halloween costume, whether its inspired by popular television shows, movies or celebrities.
Bring out your gloves and gowns! Dress up as the mysterious Lady Whistledown or the sweet Daphne Bridgerton in a ballgown, and complete your look with gemstone jewelry. “Bridgerton” was perhaps the top royal period drama in the past year thanks to the amazing storytelling by Shonda Rhimes and stunning costumes by costume designer Ellen Mirojnick. DIY a Bridgerton-inspired costume for Halloween and who knows, you might even find your own suitor like the show’s Duke of Hastings, Simon Bassett.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, aka “Bennifer”
If you can get a guy to join in on the fun with you, then why not dress up as Hollywood’s most talked about couple at the moment. The reunited lovebirds turn heads wherever they go and definitely pack the PDA everywhere from the red carpet to their daily coffee runs. Just remember that any J.Lo costume (with or without Ben) is not complete until you’re wearing the Bronx girl’s signature style: oversized hoop earrings. “Jenny From the Block” wears them so often its become part of her iconic style.
If princesses are not your thing, then why not try dressing like a villain for Halloween? Actress Emma Stone made the fictional dog-obsessed character her own when she dressed as Cruella for the 2021 live-action remake. A black-and-white wig is for sure the most important piece needed to recreate this iconic character but if you wanna add some accessories to you look, why not try a dog pendant necklace. Also according to TODAY, Cruella is a perfect costume if your zodiac sign is a Leo because “Leos are super creative and have a flair for drama. Like Cruella, a Leo knows how to make an entrance. So Leos dressing as Cruella seems to be a great fit for Halloween celebrations.”
Megan Fox at the MET Gala
Fox attended her first MET Gala this year and she did not mess around. To copy her look, put on some clip-in bangs that have been trimmed above the eyebrows, dye your hair or throw on a black wig, wear your fiercest red lipstick and get yourself in an ultra sexy, tight red gown. In terms of accessories, Fox went over the top with massive ruby earrings and you can do the same. Her look for the MET Gala was iconic enough that you would immediately spot it at a Halloween party.
