Stand Out From the Rest With These Creative Harry Styles Halloween Costume Ideas
Harry Styles has had a very, very busy year. He headlined both weekends of Coachella; debuted his new album, "Harry's House"; has toured throughout Europe and North America; released nail polish and makeup with his beauty brand, Pleasing; premiered two movies; and has made news basically every day. So it makes sense that when you're looking for a little Halloween inspiration, you'll turn to the music superstar for inspiration. Like his last name suggests, Styles always looks fashionable, and his looks range from over the top to extremely chic.
There are a lot of different Styles looks to choose from. You could go back in time and rock one of his outfits from the One Direction era, or you could go a little meta and wear one of the Halloween costumes he's rocked in recent years. The release of "Harry's House" and his Coachella appearances are great sources of inspiration. You could also mimic one of his getups from the "My Policeman" or "Don't Worry Darling" premieres or some of his more casual looks if you're not in the mood for a suit. And, if all else fails, throw on a pearl necklace, a set of chunky rings, and a feather boa, and call it a day.
Ahead, check out our ideas for fun Harry Styles Halloween costumes.
Styles won his first-ever Grammy award at the 2021 ceremony. His appearance featured an accessory that fans have become obsessed with — a boa. To dress as a mid-Grammys-performance Styles, pair a leather jacket (real or faux) with a green boa and matching black pants. Don't wear a shirt underneath for the most accurate look. If you want to match his other looks from the award show, try a plaid blazer with a purple boa or a tan blazer with a black boa. Don't forget to layer on necklaces and wear every ring you own to complete the look.
While promoting "Fine Line" in 2020, Styles became a big fan of pairing a pearl necklace with his ensembles. To match this simple and stylish look from a March appearance, wear pants and a sweater in bright primary colors with a white button down, and add a pearl necklace on top.
At the Toronto Film Festival in September, Styles debuted another interesting accessory: a giant green lapel flower. The singer debuted the look for the premiere of his movie "My Policeman." To nail this look, match a flower or plant — real or fake — to an emerald-green blazer. Green pants and a green bag — preferably all in different shades — will finish the look. Picking a flower around the same size as Styles's would give you one chic Halloween look, but if you want to go for humor, an oversize flower or plant would definitely make your fellow revelers laugh.
Coachella Weekend 1 Harry
Styles headlined both weekends of Coachella in 2022. For his first set, he wore a black Gucci jumpsuit covered in big sequins, which were lined up to create a rainbow effect. To rock this look for Halloween, you can embellish black pants and a tank top with round, flat sequins. Styles also wore a sparkly jumpsuit in the "As It Was" music video, which you could re-create with red pants and a tank top covered in bright-red sequins.
Coachella Weekend 2 Harry
For weekend two of Coachella, Styles wore pink leather pants and a matching vest. When Lizzo came out to join him, he added a giant pink fluffy coat, which would take this costume to another level. It's all about the details here. Styles's pants had an "H" and "S" on the butt, which you could re-create with fabric and rhinestones. The vest was also decorated with images of fruit, including a cherry and strawberry.
Styles held two "Harryween" shows in 2021. One night, he and his band dressed up as flamboyant clowns. To match this look, stay away from more traditional rainbow clowns, and go for white with gold and black accents. The most important details are the big moon and star emblems on front and the huge ruffly collar.
For the other night of Harryween, Styles dressed as Dorothy from "The Wizard of Oz," with his whole band mimicking the rest of the iconic characters. This is maybe the simplest costume on the list — wear a Dorothy costume, complete with ruby slippers. Styles also had two huge circles on blush on his cheeks. After that, just tell everyone you're not Dorothy — you're Harry Styles as Dorothy.
"Today" Show Harry
Back in May, Styles wore this controversial look to perform on the "Today" show. The vibe was candy-cane adjacent. To re-create this eye-catching ensemble, paint stripes onto lime-green pants and a long-sleeved shirt. If your friends aren't fans of the look, it just comes with the territory of being a trendsetter.
Venice Film Festival Harry
Styles's appearance on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival in September featured an outrageously oversize collar. If you can't find or sew a shirt with this aesthetic, you can create your own giant collar out of construction paper or felt. Sunglasses will complete this dramatic look. And if one of your friends happens to dress up as Chris Pine, you can decide if you want to spit on them.
iHeartRadio Music Festival Harry
Styles wore a very complicated look for the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival. His checkered suit definitely evokes a court jester, and the gothic collar of his shirt is Austin Powers-adjacent. This would be one of the more time-consuming looks to pull off for Halloween. You'll need a red suit, black and gold paint, and some tape to help you keep your line work clean.
Met Gala Harry
Styles was a cochair of the 2019 Met Gala, and he went for a more understated ensemble. To match him, wear black pants with a black see-through shirt. The most iconic part of the outfit is the single dangling pearl earring, evoking the "Girl With the Pearl Earring" painting.
Elton John Harry
For Halloween in 2018, Styles dressed as one of his favorite musicians — Elton John! John wore a bedazzled jumpsuit when he headlined Dodgers Stadium in 1975, and Taron Egerton wore a similar suit when he portrayed John in 2019's "Rocketman." If you can't score your own bedazzled Dodgers jersey online, you can glue sequins to a regular one yourself. A Dodgers hat and Elton John sunglasses complete the costume.
Brit Awards Harry
Styles's performed "Falling" at the 2020 Brit Awards in this classic but fun outfit. He wore floral white pants with a matching shirt, gloves, and suspenders. Sewing a few white flower appliqués to your own slacks and shirt would make this an easy costume to replicate.
British Fashion Awards Harry
If you want to go a little retro with your Harry Styles costume, take some inspiration from his 2014 appearance at the British Fashion Awards. Styles — who had long hair at the time — wore a striped blazer and pants with a turtleneck.
"Fine Line" Harry
To copy Styles's look from the release of "Fine Line" in 2019, wear loose slacks with sneakers, a graphic cardigan, and a pearl necklace.
One Direction Harry
Styles's 2015 One Direction aesthetic was all about his long, wavy hair and graphic bomber jackets.
To portray Styles on his very first solo tour, you'll need a suit in a bright color or pattern, a coordinating button-down shirt, and a guitar of your own.
