Cardi B, aka hip hop recording artist of the chart-topping hit “Bodak Yellow,” has more to offer this Halloween season than your favorite bop. You can also definitely recreate Cardi B’s iconic looks for your own Halloween costume this year. One of her signature looks comes straight off of her album artwork for the “Bodak Yellow” single. Luckily, you can DIY your own Cardi B Halloween costume this year with just a few simple and affordable pieces. Without further ado, let’s dive into what you’ll need to recreate this DIY masterpiece…
While Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” outfit is a bit difficult to recreate to a T, you can achieve the same look that she was going for with similar pieces. For starters, you can pick up this olive green structured jacket from Amazon. Cardi B’s jacket has a similar moto-style structure to it and also has darker greens in it. This jacket under $50 is your best bet for your costume this year and it can even be worn time and time again long after Halloween is officially over.
Next, let’s move onto shorts. Cardi B is seen wearing a pair of frayed shorts that perfectly match her structured jacket in her single album artwork. You can also achieve the same look by opting for this pair of olive green distressed shorts. Not only are they super affordable, they will also match nicely with your Amazon jacket. So, be sure to add these to your Amazon cart as well. Note, the price for your shorts varies depending on the size that you order.
Cardi B is known to switch up her look a lot, but her red hair is a signature go-to style for her. You can get your own Cardi B hairstyle by ordering this red auburn wig from Spirit Halloween. You can also trim and style the wig any way that you want to achieve the perfect Cardi B Halloween costume.
Last but not least, you can’t forget about shoes. Cardi B is seen on her album artwork wearing simple strapped black heels. These heels from Forever 21 are close to the same style, and are also super trendy thanks to their satin finish. They also come in a wide rage of sizes, ranging from size 5.5 to size 10. Much like the moto-style jacket, you can also wear these black satin ankle-strap heels long after Halloween is over.
