Karl Lagerfeld is not only a chic, high fashion Halloween option, near-replicating his luxe minimalist, heavily tailored steez for the purposes of this holiday is actually not that difficult nor does it have to be super expensive. You can cop almost all of Karl’s stark black and white pieces at your nearest Forever 21, put your hair in a ponytail (COVERED in white hair spray), and finish it off with a pair of sunglasses and fingerless leather gloves.

You could finish off the Karl costume with a prop cat, but why not turn it into a group costume and have someone dress up as fashion’s most famous cat: Choupette! Round up the fuzziest, whitest garments you can find, slick on a pair of cat ears, and seal the deal by repurposing that leopard costume makeup for the other feline look. TA-DA!

Wanna look #chictothenextlev? Dress up this Halloween as P’Trique, one of fashion’s most promising rising stars!

Statement sunglasses are a MUST for this look, as is a heavy-handed pour of ATTITUDE. *’round the world SNAP*
