Channel the ultimate cool-girl Neve Campbell and dress as the trendiest witches that ever graced our screens. Plaid minis, white shirts, and black eyeliner are the essentials - the rest is down to attitude.

Leon

MOST POPULAR

You’ll need a black bob, a great chocker, and a crochet top – oh, and grab a pot plant (we know you have plenty) on your way out the door.

Bonnie And Clyde

The sexiest gangster there ever was – add a side beret and a clinched waist and your look is there.

Vamp

Grace Jones as this 90s vampire is basically god's gift of a Halloween costume. Do this. 

Rosemary's Baby

Put on your finest nightie and grab a knife from the kitchen and make like the beautiful Mia Farrow in Rosemary's baby. A blonde pixie cut is a must. 

Fifth Element

Remember Leeloo? She was the saviour of the world in film Fifth Element and between her red cropped hair, and white cut-out costume – her look is fancy dress perfection.

Royal Tenenbaums

MOST POPULAR

Margot Tenenbaum is not just our Halloween style icon but pretty much our AW15 life icon. Wear faux fur with a slide hairgrip, and a Lacoste tennis dress. 

Clockwork Orange

The creepiest film going, so scary it was banned for years - this outfit is Halloween heaven, even if it does involve you wearing a codpiece.

Addams Family

Make like Wednesday from Addams Family and borrow some strong gel from a guy, and place your hair in two tight plaits. Wear black, with a bit white collar. Pale make-up necessary. 

Mad Max

Find your badass side as Charlize from Mad Max. White loincloths, leather pants and chain belts are your wardrobe needs.

Frida

Salma Hayek’s take on this brilliant woman is anything but basic. Wear your most flamboyant red dress, draw your brows big and add big flowers to your hair.

Pulp Fiction

Oh to be able to dance like Uma. If you did Leon last year, re-use the wig, put on a white shirt and age yourself to be this infamous character. A needle hanging from your chest optional.

The Birds

Hitchcock’s 1963 classic is still the chicest horror going. Create the look with a belted mac and a black bird attached to your combed back hair.
