DIY celebrity Halloween costumes
Look like Kim Kardashian

I decided to recreate this amazing Kim Kardashian look for my Halloween costume. Not only is Kimmy K rocking this look, but she’s wearing sweatpants, and who doesn’t love sweatpants? 

Celebrity inspired Halloween costumes

To get the super fun front tie on the white top, I started by cutting down the center of a T-shirt.

Twist the ends

Once the T was cut, It was time to style it. I twisted one side of it tightly and tucked it into my bra. I then took the other side and twisted it in the opposite direction and tucked it into the other side of my bra. 

Awesome celebrity Halloween costumes

Once the top was done, it was a simple matter of throwing on a pair of grey sweatpants, putting on a wig, and a gorgeous pair of sock boots. Feel free to add a cute cap to this outfit as well! I couldn’t believe how easy it was to put this whole look together!

Look like Billie Eilish

For this next look, I was totally inspired by Billie Eilish and her unique style!

Spray paint the top

To recreate this classic Billie Eilish look, I simply spray painted the Chanel Cs onto an oversized green T.

Next, I threw on my Men’s baggy joggers, added a mask with a chain attached to it, popped on my Billie wig, and of course put my Nikes on with ankle socks. This is such a fun Halloween look and so simple to pull off! 

Recreate Gwen Stefani

Step: Look like Gwen Stefani

I was so excited to recreate a Gwen Stefani look because her outfits are so much fun and interchangeable! 

Style the wig

To get the perfect Stefani hairdo I cut bangs that matched hers and styled this blonde wig to get the perfect look. 

Add a red lip

To get the very glam and grunge Gwen Stefani style, I pulled a pair of fishnets up high, put some camo sweatpants up over them, and paired this with a white crop top and a flannel shirt tied around my waist. Oh, and of course her iconic red lip! 

Recreate J-Lo

For my final Halloween celebrity in sweatpants look, I recreated J-Lo’s all-white outfit. 

Wear mirror sunglasses

This is definitely the easiest look to recreate! I popped on my crop top, Timberlands, hoop earrings and of course a great pair of mirror sunnies.

    You look better than Kim or J Lo in those outfits. I don't get the huge hips and butts I think it makes them look fat. You looked great and super skinny I hate you for that, JK of course. 😁
