As you can tell, we’re really excited about Halloween over here. And one of the very first costumes we thought of this year was a Beyonce Lemonade Halloween costume. Her epic album drop like *made* our 2016, so this costume is going to be HUGE. I mean–do you even remember life before Lemonade? I know Becky doesn’t. Beyonce is always big for Halloween (her Met Gala costume, her On The Run tour costume, infamous elevator fight costume, etc.), but I think this year is going to be even bigger since she performed at the Super Bowl, dropped Lemonade, made some major Jay Z infidelity allegations… 2016 and has been a big year for Queen Bey and her Beyhive!

Anyways–we’re tackling the Lemonade costume today, specifically what she wore during the “Hold Up” video, which is such a memorable, identifiable costume that everyone will instantly know what you are (isn’t that half the battle on Halloween?).

To start, here’s the whole video for inspo:

To start, you’ll need a lemonade-colored frilly ruffled dress that looks somewhat like the Roberto Cavalli fall 2016 collection one she wore in the video:

Off-the-Shoulder Skater Dress

There are a couple different options online–you can just do a search for “yellow ruffle dress” or “mustard ruffle dress.” I found this one that I think is pretty and flattering–and not too expensive: Flutter On By Yellow Off-the-Shoulder Skater Dress ($64).

Plisse Silk Blend Jersey Mini Dress

In case you want a dress that is more of a mustard color that matches Beyonce’s, I also found this Rachel Zoe Nancy Cutout Plissé Silk Blend Jersey Mini Dress ($207, down from $295). I think it’s really beautiful and you’ll actually get some wears out of it after Halloween–but it is $200.

Next you’ll need a fabulous pair of shoes. In the beginning of the video, Beyonce is barefoot, but then when she’s walking down the street she’s wearing printed Saint Laurent Candy chunky sandals:

Saint Laurent Candy Sandals

Unfortunately, Beyonce’s exact SAINT LAURENT ‘Candy’ sandals ($646.75, down from $995) from the “Hold Up” video are crazy expensive. So I found a cheaper version that is still really cute and you might get some wear out of:

Floral Print SandalsAny printed wedges or sandals should work–but I think these Alice + Olivia Jenna Floral Print Platform Wedge Sandals ($119, down from $295) are a great bet because they’ll go nicely with the yellow dress, have really high heels so your legs will look good, and you’ll actually want to wear them after Halloween. If you want an even cheaper option…

Chelsea Zoe Macbeth Wedges

I found these Chelsea + Zoe Macbeth wedges for $24.

Natural Teeball BatYou’ll definitely need a baseball bat. If you can’t borrow one from a friend, order anyone online–including a real one like this Louisville Slugger Youth Ash Natural Teeball ($14.95) or something silly like a wiffle ball bat.

Gold Tone Crimping IronBeyonce has crimped hair in the video–so you’ll need a crimper, too. If you don’t own one, here’s one I found on Amazon:  Gold N’ Hot GH3013 Gold Tone Crimping Iron ($21.39).

Fallon Gold Hoop EarringsLastly, you’ll need some great gold jewelry. In the “Hold Up” video, Beyonce’s stylist B. Akerlund styled her in a Jacquie Aiche hand piece, anklet and body chain, Lynn Ban diamond-cuff earring, Lynn Ban ring, Jennifer Fisher cigar ring, Fallon gold hoop earrings, and a Le Vian bracelet. You can get her exact Fallon Armure Crescent Plate Hoops ($175).

So, there you have it–everything you’ll need for a Beyonce Lemonade “Hold Up” Halloween costume.
