Perfect for the person who feels like she was born in the wrong decade.
When you think of the 1950s, the first thing that comes to mind probably includes car hop girls in poodle skirts and guys with slicked back hair in greaser jackets. While those looks are certainly a staple of the decade, they aren't your only options if you're looking for '50s Halloween costumes ideas to rock this year.
If you want to celebrate the iconic decade, there is definitely room to think outside the box! Dress as one of your favorite glamorous '50s movie stars, like Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn, or embrace your kooky side by dressing as Lucy from I Love Lucy.
And since some of these costumes only require one or two specific pieces of clothing, they can be thrown together quickly if you've waited until the last minute to pull together your look. Inspired by famous faces, must-see movies, and cultural movements of the era, these 50s Halloween costumes are a fun way to let your retro spirit shine this October.
