A Simple Favor Halloween Costume: Dress Like Blake Lively

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

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?
