TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) – Theme: Bridgerton
If anyone can pull off an over-the-top “regencycore” costume, it’s a Taurus! Unleash your love of luxury with a Bridgerton-inspired corseted gown or ruffled dress shirt for a jaw-dropping, romantic costume. For maximum glam, don’t forget to top off the look with jeweled accessories and an ultra-dramatic wig.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20) – Theme: Gender Flip
Gemini, get ready to flip the switch this Halloween by dressing as the alter-ego of a legendary character. Will you choose to turn Freddy Kreuger’s classic look into a sexy Halloween costume with a cropped, striped sweater or turn heads as a hunky male nurse? As a social butterfly, you’ll love sparking conversation with an unconventional or controversial twist on an age-old theme.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22) – Theme: Vintage Barbie & Ken
For a Cancer, Halloween is the perfect excuse to cuddle on the couch with a scary movie and homemade snacks. So, if you have to make an appearance, you’re definitely dragging your significant other (or bestie) along for the ride. This sign loves a campy Halloween costume, so why not channel your inner Margot Robbie or Ryan Gosling with a bright, 90s Barbie theme?
LEO (July 23 – Aug. 22) – Theme: The Comeback Queen
Like Britney Spears, you love “all eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus” so why not celebrate the ultimate ringmaster or her duet partner, Elton John? With decades of iconic fashion between the two idols, you can unleash your creative side to craft the ultimate look (and a dance routine to match)!
VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) – Theme: Horror OGs
For detail-oriented Virgo, being forced to come up with a flashy, innovative costume would be the ultimate horror story. Better to nail the classics with a movie-worthy vampire, witch or devil. While your idea may not be unique, it will definitely be the best they’ve ever seen.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) – Theme: Hollywood Glamour
Though you’re usually a fan of balance, not excess, the holidays are a time to let yourself indulge, Libra! This Halloween, take inspiration from your planetary ruler, Venus, and embrace art and beauty by copying a red carpet look. From the famous Marilyn Monroe dress worn by Kim Kardashian to just about any outfit from Harry Styles, 2022 has been filled with memorable fashion moments that push the envelope, but not too far.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) – Theme: The Adams Family
No one feels more at home during the spooky season than a Scorpio… unless you count the Adams Family. Symbols of romance and darkness, Morticia and Gomez Adams are the perfect match for the sultry and mysterious Scorpio. Though linked to death and destruction by the sign’s planetary ruler, Pluto, you’re also often misunderstood with your loyalty and empathy going unrecognized by others.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) – Theme: Adventure Seeker
You’re always up for an adventure and a good party! Halloween is your time to show up and show off your trailblazing spirit with a Lara Croft, Nathan Drake, or Jumanji-inspired costume. Like any good action hero, you’ve gotta have some cutting-edge gadgets – use your imagination to stock your pockets with some fun tools to spice up the night!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) – Theme: Favorite Baddies
It’s time to stop playing by the rules and take a walk on the dark side! If it’s hard to break completely from tradition, no worries! Halloween is the perfect opportunity to bring your favorite childhood villains like Captain Hook or Cruella de Vil to life with a sexy, modern twist.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) – Theme: Out of this World
There’s nothing conventional about you, so why wear a down-to-earth costume? This year, go sci-fi with your look, using your creativity and DIY skills to craft an outfit as unique as you are. While a classic alien theme is always on the table, an otherworldly superhero is the best match for an Aquarius, giving you the ability to advocate for your favorite cause while you let loose.
PISCES (Feb. 19 – March 20) – Theme: Cult Classics
Pisces, this is not the time to get your head out of the clouds! The perfect costume for you is inspired by your favorite throwback fantasy flicks. Think 80s cult classics like The Princess Bride or Labyrinth for a dreamy, nostalgic look that blends timeless glamour with a large dose of magic.
