3 Harry Styles Halloween Costume Ideas for the True One Direction Fan
You love One Direction's Harry Styles, don't even bother denying it. Do you know how I know? Because EVERYONE loves Harry Styles — from Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift to Ariana Grande and Hilary Duff who's begging to make music with him. And, I'm sure you've heard that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. So, you're definitely going to want to show your love for Harry Styles by dressing like him for Halloween this year. Because you adore him and because it'll be a totally pop culture-relevant costume with One Direction's new album being released any day now.
The great thing about dressing up like Harry Styles is that you have the option of making this a couple's and/or group costume if you find someone willing to dress up like one of Styles' exes or the rest of One Direction. But what's even better about this costume is that you'll be comfortable as hell and probably wear the items you purchased for it for years to come. Because, let's face it, Harry Styles is stylish but, really, he just knows how to work the basics by topping them off with a man-bun.
So, if you're all-about One Direction, here are some quick and easy Harry Styles Halloween costumes to really help you make some Midnight Memories this year.
Styles has some pretty great and famous tattoos, so you know you might want to show them off. A quick "Harry Styles tattoos" search on Etsy will get you all of the items you could possibly want or need to be "shirtless" Harry Styles for Halloween while keeping your shirt on. Pair these items with any pair of tight, black jeans, pointy-toed boots, and Styles' signature man-bun and you're good to go.
If it's cold where you are and/or you're conservative:
This Etsy seller assures you that for $25, you can get this Harry Styles tattoo sweatshirt that has all of the Directioner's tattoos as of Aug. 2014.
If it's warmer where you are:
You can rock this Harry Styles tattoo crop top that, while lacking in most of the singer's tattoos, is a more feminine style if you want to show off more skin.
If you really want to show some skin:
Are t-shirts not enough? Do you want some really lifelike tattoos like Harry's? Well, Etsy seller Fangirl Tattoos offers this package of Styles-specific tattoos for $12.95. But you'll need to buy a second pack to get his chest sparrows and butterfly.
***Bonus: Go meta and dress like Harry Styles as Miley Cyrus.
Dust off your Miley Cyrus at the 2013 VMAs costume from last Halloween (or borrow one or, if you must, buy these shorts from American Apparel), slap on these temporary tattoos and/or one of these tattoo t-shirts and there you go. An instant success.
Harry Styles With A Man-Bun
Styles' man-bun has officially swept the Internet because it's so otherworldly that us mere mortals can't possibly do anything but stare at it. So, get your hair together and dress up as Styles complete with man-bun. For this particular look you'll need the aforementioned stick-on tattoos, a white tee, and some black jeans. Let me suggest:
A pack of Hanes white t shirts like these from Target — they come six in a package and they're only $14.49. So you totally won't mind cutting and stretching the neck out a bit to make it look like Styles'. And now for black jeans:
Styles loves a distressed pair of skinny black jeans, like this pair from the Gap.
