Minimalist Halloween Costumes for Women
This short guide includes steps to recreate iconic looks from three very famous female movie characters: Holly Golightly, Wednesday Addams, and Princess Leia.
I chose these three because they are elegant and classy costumes with normal clothes that you wouldn’t be embarrassed to walk around in the middle of the day.
I also wanted them to be easy costumes you can put together in a couple of minutes for which you can use items you already own. You also don’t need any special skills when it comes to hair and make-up to recreate these simple looks.
However, in case you don’t have everything you need for any of these costumes, I added links where you can buy all the components of these outfits and included video tutorials for each of these ladies.
So, let’s start!
Holly Golightly is a legendary character from the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s portrayed by lovely Audrey Hepburn.
The most famous look from the movie features Holly wearing an elegant black dress, a statement necklace, and a tiara. This look solidified the little black dress as a staple piece of any woman’s wardrobe and is the perfect minimalist Halloween costume.
Now is the time to take your best black dress for a walk!
Steal the look:
Black Flat Shoes (so you can easily walk)
The Addams Family is a cult Halloween movie, and Wednesday Addams is a legendary daughter whose look is recognizable by many.
It is fairly simple to recreate her look and turn it into a sophisticated and minimalistic Halloween costume. By dressing up as Wednesday Addams you will epitomize the scary essence of Halloween and maybe frighten a couple of souls! 🙂
You will need a Peter Pan collar black dress and a pair of Mary Jane pumps to create this perfect Halloween costume.

The legendary heroine of Star Wars, Princess Leia, is the perfect character to dress up as if you want a simple and minimalist, yet effective costume.
The hardest, yet essential part of her costume is her hairdo. You will have to tinker with your hair for a bit to get those Princess Leia buns. However, I linked to a simplified tutorial down below to make it easier for you.
Other parts of her costume are pretty straightforward, a long white dress and a wide belt and you are good to go!
Steal the look:
White Boots (completely optional)
