Halloween Group Costumes For Your Squad | Clozette


Convince your BFFs to play dress-up this Halloween, but make it even more fun by doing it as a squad. Don't know where to start? We lined up the coolest Halloween group costumes that's perfect for your crew — no matter what your interests are as a group.


Sailor Scouts



With retro inspirations and zodiac-inspired everything being two of the biggest things in fashion and beauty right now (not to mention massive girl power vibes), Sailor Moon and her gang is definitely an ideal choice. The titular character of the famed animé franchise not only sports the most iconic and dazzling Eastern pop culture ensemble there is, you and your pals can also share extra fun by choosing which character suits your personality. You can even bring a significant other to dress up as Sailor Moon's love interest Tuxedo Mask or a cute younger sister/niece to play Chibiusa (Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask's child from the future)!


Power Rangers



If you want to avoid hyped up references like Avengers or Money Heist for your group look, Power Rangers is a squad from our childhood that still has great impact. Choose your ranger depending on your favourite in the series or just based on your favourite colour. Plus, no need to worry about group poses for pics as the series and its many adaptations already provide countless inspirations to choose from. 

Disney Villains



We've already talked about Disneybounding before but here's a summary in case you missed it: it's where you can downplay classic Disney looks. People usually go as Disney princesses, but this year, especially with Maleficient hitting the theatres and Descendants rising in popularity, we're looking at villains for inspiration. Not only are Disney villains like Snow White's Evil Queen, 101 Dalmatians' Cruella De Vil, and even The Little Mermaid's Ursula known for channelling wicked beauty and fashion looks (pun intended), they also have that sassy attitude that's perfect to strut around in, arm-in-arm with your BFFs. 


The Breakfast Club


Riverdale may be today's hottest 'teen' gang on TV, but if you really want to channel highschool cliques, you have to go for the best one. We're talking about the group in John Hughes' classic '80s film, The Breakfast Club. Level up the costume challenge by going as the one you're least like among the characters. The best part is you don't have to pay much for the costume — you might even have pieces already in your closet.



A band of horror movie figures



If you and your squad really take Halloween seriously, why not go as some of the most (in)famous characters from scary movies? Ghostface from Scream is a classic choice, Michael Myers from the Halloween trilogy is another great pick (trivia: he apparently wears an upturned Captain Kirk mask from Star Trek), and throw in a Pennywise from It for variety.

Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival has come a long way. On its fifth anniversary last week, the most-awaited fashion festival in the Philippines celebrated life and fashion by showcasing talented local and international designers. Read on for the trends we spotted from the captivating collections that hit the runway.



Asymmetrical cuts

Life would be boring if we completely stuck to the same rules. That's perhaps why a lot of designers went for the unexpected and gave their creations an interesting twist with asymmetrical cuts and silhouettes. Kaye Morales, for one, put a spin to her signature androgynous style with this loose suit with only half a pair of sleeves. Dodjie Batu, on the other hand, went with a nice pop of colour with this striped one-shoulder top paired with glittering wide-leg pants. For a more festive take on the style, Dino Lloren went with a golden-dotted asymmetrical number that’s both relaxed and elegant.


Chic high-necks

Ensembles are instantly made highly sophisticated when high-neck pieces are incorporated. This trending neckline from Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival's fifth anniversary makes for a chic and modern look. Renan Pacson added edginess to this sleek turtleneck number with the cut-outs embellished by chain details. The classic simplicity of the navy top from Exyai, meanwhile, is subtly contrasted by the checked baggy bottoms. But high-neck numbers aren’t only sleek. As a lighter and more feminine contrast to these two, Windel Mira dazzled with this ruffle-sleeved sheer blouse.



A burst of colour


Colourful ensembles

Life wouldn't be fun without a burst of colour and the designers that showcased at PMFF's fifth anniversary surely didn't forget that. Everything was on-point in Benjie Panizales’ orange ensemble that’s contrasted with blue details and accessories. Fred Telarma also aced the colour game with the quirky layers of his bright creation. Lastly, there’s Steph Tan who made her hot tropical collection cool with this tri-toned polka dot ensemble.



Statement sleeves

Statment sleeves are in — and they're definitely bigger and better than before. Go bold with puffed sleeves that serve as a counterpoint to snug bodices and sleek bottoms of the season. This year, John Pe Larlar’s designs were striking, not only for the use of vinyl, but also for the structured sleeves that starred in this ensemble. But Cheetah Rivera strayed away from the usually boxy silhouettes of utilitarian fashion by adding a relaxed, feminine touch with puffed sleeves. Of course, let’s not forget Veejay Floresca who went subtler with sheer sleeves, which nonetheless still made his glam floral number extra elegant.



Modern Filipiniana

Modern Filipinianas are definitely one of the most striking PMFF fifth anniversary trends. Local designers showcased their appreciation for heritage by reinventing traditional silhouettes to fit the sensibilities of 21st century style mavens. First, there was Yong Studio by Yong Davalos, which gave the traditional terno a juicy update with this strawberry-print ensemble. Another successful attempt was Egay Ayag’s application of the quintessential butterfly sleeves to the classic suit. Meanwhile, Edgar Buyan chose to move away from the structured sleeves by giving this Maria Clara-style terno a colourful twist.
