Autumn is here! It’s the time of year that leaves turn colors, the living room heater turns on, and the holidays (and holiday ads) begin to turn up more frequently. While the favorite holidays for most of us happen in November and December, Oct. 31 is coming on fast as a favorite for many. The chance to be someone or something else for a day is fascinating stuff. While vampires, ghosts, and goblins will always be Halloween staples, Gildshire wanted to look for something more stylish and “today” for you to wear to your Halloween party. Do we have ideas for you? Wait until you see the 2019 Halloween trends that we found.
Notable moments, whether a music video that goes viral, a hot new film, or a vital social consciousness movement, can serve as an inspiration for a Halloween costume. The last twelve months have been no different. Movie and TV characters took over screens, both big and small. That’s normal, but this year public figures gained popularity for more reasons than just politics alone. That’s why these are Gildshire’s best ideas for Halloween 2019.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) gained an enormous amount of attention this year. As a leader from the emerging generation of lawmakers, her bold steps and strong opinions make her stand out as she stands up for what she believes. She goes by the initials AOC, and you can be AOC for a day and a night. A long, black wig starts the look. A white jacket and white pants continue it. Bright red lipstick completes it.
Lizzo’s performance at the MTV Video Music Awards was news making, but a lot of people knew her already. She’s an icon for this generation. Embrace the shooting star that is Lizzo and become your own starlet on Halloween. Long black hair (Hmm, a trend) with a red gown and a feather boa. Shorty shorts complete the look, but only if you trick-or-treat where the weather is warm.
Ashley O from Black Mirror
If you aren’t watching “Black Mirror,” you should adjust your viewing habits accordingly. Recurring characters give it a more cohesive feel this year. Ashley O. is among the more recurring and one of the most popular. Maybe the best part is, you can wear what you want below the neck because her short, purple hairstyle says who you are.
The upcoming “CATS” film trailer just came out, so anticipation is nine lives deep. How can you resist, since you have a little bit of costumer inside you?
“Fleabag” just won the Emmy for best comedy series. Many wish to channel its titular character’s style. The look starts with a cutout jumpsuit and ends with a simple cross-body bag.
Serena Williams is a role model. Not just for young women and not just for women of any age. She’s a role model for us all. A chic crop top, tennis skirt, and sneakers put you almost on the court. If you don’t play tennis, ask Mom if she has a racquet on the top shelf of the closet. If she does, ask her if you can borrow it, but not until you ask her about her own tennis days. These are the top 2019 Halloween trends where we live, and Gildshire will bet they’re popular in your town, as well. Have fun with them on this night of fun, frolic, and candy. Don’t forget the candy!
