I went to see A Simple Favor twice this weekend. So now all I can think about is the clothing. While I might not be brave enough to rock Blake Lively’s full on suiting or Stepford-esque looks in person, some of the elements serve up major style. And luckily, it’s Halloween costume planning time! Whether you want to plan A Simple Favor Halloween costume or channel Emily’s looks for real life, I’ve found options for you babes. There are a few themes in her attire throughout the film:
- — Menswear / suiting
- — Christian Louboutins. So many Louboutins.
- — Key accessories, whether a skull-topped walking stick, red gloves, or a fedora
- — Subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) sex appeal

A SIMPLE FAVOR HALLOWEEN Costume: FINAL SCENE STEPFORD look
In the final scene, Emily shifts into a different persona. Recreate this look with a conservative blue floral dress, pink tulle underskirt, turquoise heels, pearls, retro waves, and her signature accessory (a martini glass, of course – this version is unbreakable to keep you safe during your celebrations).

A Simple Favor Halloween Costume: Emily in the Park
In the scene where we first see a hint of Emily’s past (her reluctance to get her picture taken) she is slaying. Pair black suiting with a white shirt and black pointed toe heels, plus these accessories, for a stylish (and warm) costume.
Would you do A Simple Favor Halloween costume channeling Emily, or is Stephanie more your style?
