It would be hard to steal a scene from legends like Steve Martin and Martin Short, unless, of course, you're Selena Gomez's perfectly fuzzy coat in Only Murders in the Building. After binging the quirky murder-mystery comedy on Hulu, we need more of this foursome — and by foursome, we mean Steve, Martin, Selena, and Selena's outerwear collection. Selena certainly holds her own with the iconic comedic duo, providing some much-needed millennial sarcasm and a little edge, with a wardrobe crafted by costume designer Dana Covarrubias that toes the line between fashion-conscious New Yorker and laid-back 20-something who's also too busy solving crime to be concerned with her outfit.
In that way, the clothes are effortless — take the coat, for instance. It's a standout piece that speaks for itself, so it pairs well with the basics, i.e. jeans or trousers and sweaters that make up the majority of her outfits. With those building blocks, Selena's character, Mabel, has something of a uniform — and a stylish and easy one to replicate at that. With Halloween festivities ramping up, this timely costume only requires a couple of pieces — and ones you'll likely wear again.
So, if you're looking for an easy fall outfit-turned-costume-idea, consider this a good place to start. Read on to see Selena's onscreen looks and shop the key pieces, including her covetable coats, cozy knits, and unmissable red headphones to nail the part.
