HBO’s drama miniseries Big Little Lies had literally everyone hooked this past winter and spring. That’s why recreating the fashion looks from the hit series can create amazing Halloween costume ideas for this year. You can even have some extra fun with your DIY creation since the Big Little Lies characters dressed up in different Audrey Hepburn costumes for a themed party during the final episode. Both executive producer and actress Reese Witherspoon (Madeline Martha Mackenzie) and actress Shailene Woodley (Jane Chapman) picked two iconic Audrey looks from Breakfast at Tiffany’s that you can easily recreate. Without further ado, let’s dive into how you can create a DIY Big Little Lies Audrey Hepburn Halloween costume.

Shailene Woodley’s Audrey Hepburn Black Dress Costume:

Luckily, Shailene’s a.k.a. Jane Chapman’s Audrey Hepburn costume primarily involves one staple piece– a little black dress. The key to picking out the perfect Audrey LBD is finding one that’s fitted, about knee-length, and sleeveless. You can easily order this one off of Amazon for under $25. Note, the price range varies depending on the size that you order.

Amazon SE MIU Women Sleeveless High Neck Bodycon Pencil Dress Tank Shirt Dress ($13.99-22.99)

It’s key to have a sleeveless black dress because you also need Audrey’s iconic long black gloves for this look. Along with your LBD, you can also order this pair of black satin gloves from Amazon for less than $10.

Amazon Vijiv 1920s Glove Opera Satin Long 20s Gatsby Flapper Gloves ($9.99)

Next, let’s talk hair. To replicate Audrey’s hair in Breakfast At Tiffany’s you’ll want to opt for an updo. Just like Audrey, you can spice up your hairstyle with this tiny crown hairpiece. Remember to add this to your Amazon cart before checking out– it’s only about $6!

Amazon Lovelyshop Tiny Royal Crown Rhinestone Hair Comb ($5.22)

Lastly, the perfect final touch for this look is a simple strand of pearls. Obviously real pearls would be expensive if you don’t already own some, but you can always opt for this pearl necklace from Target for less than $10. Your LBD, black gloves, crown hairpiece, pearls, and some black pumps can effortlessly create the most amazing Audrey Hepburn Halloween costume this year.

Target Short Pearl Necklace – 18″ – Silver/White ($9.99)

Reese Witherspoon’s Audrey Hepburn Sleepwear Costume:

Now, let’s move onto Reese Witherspoon’s Audrey costume in the Big Little Lies finale. Reese’s character Madeline chose the Holly Golightly sleepwear look from Breakfast At Tiffany’s. If you can’t borrow an oversized white button-down from someone you know, you can purchase this white tunic dress from Amazon for about $17.

Amazon HAOYIHUI Women’s Casual Long Sleeve Boyfriend Pocket Shirt Dress Tunic Top ($16.99)

The simple white dress can then be paired with Madeline’s statement pink tassel earrings. Plus, these earrings are also trendy considering tassel earrings are so in right now. You can also order these off of Amazon for $7.50. What a deal!

Amazon MELUOGE Beautiful Tassel Long Earrings Colors Bohemia Ethnic Earrings ($7.50)

Lastly, you can’t forget about the sleep mask. Luckily, Amazon has an offer on one that looks just like the one Audrey wears as Holly– which is also seen on Reese in the Big Little Lies HBO finale. So, be sure to add this to your Amazon order for the perfect final touch.
