Sneaky Great Halloween Costumes

The Best Sexy, Silly & Scary Looks

BY // 10.26.16

Squads have taken over 2016 — and Halloween is no exception. Whether it’s Taylor Swift’s Girls Squad, Rio Olympic Games squads or box office movie squads serving as inspiration, the best Halloween costumes are becoming more and more team things.

Still looking for your perfect costume? Get your best friends together and start squad plotting.

Game of Thrones, Olympic good and bad boys (Michael Phelps and Ryan Lotche respectively), the Ghostbuster girls, the Suicide Squad and Women’s Gymnastics’ Final Five will dominate best costume contests this year. Going the squad route, is a perfect way to incorporate close friends (especially single friends) and family members into your Halloween dress up. Complete the night with #squadgoal selfies that are sure to get your thousands of likes.

More of a stand-alone creative when it comes to Halloween? There were plenty of mega stars dominating the headlines that make good costume inspiration. Turn your lemons into Lemonade as Houston’s own Beyoncé (just don’t decide if you’re jealous or crazy while destroying cars around the city), perfect your Hotline Bling dance moves as Drake, or catch them all as a Pokémon master. 

Get creative, go out and have fun. Just step away from the ordinary witch and those terrifying clown masks (which are now illegal in some jurisdictions), and get together with your crew and take over the Halloween party scene. Squad style.
