Hillary Clinton may not have won the presidential election last year, but she still may be one your favorite leading ladies. From pantsuits to pearl necklaces, the former First Lady had some iconic outfits that she wore while campaigning. You may even find many of her simple wardrobe essentials in your own closet. That’s why it’s so easy to recreate her go-to looks come Oct. 31! Luckily, you can DIY your own Hillary Clinton Halloween costume this year following just a few simple steps.

One thing’s for sure, Hillary definitely has her fair share of pantsuits. You can totally choose to go that route, but you can also choose a solid colored dress as a different costume option. Plus, a dress may be a more breathable option if you’re dancing and moving all night long on Halloween. You can opt for this navy blue dress from Amazon for less than $17. You can also always wear this time and time again long after the holiday is over!

Let’s talk blazers. A light blazer is an easy way to incorporate Hillary’s pantsuit style into your costume. You can easily throw on this light jacket over your dress for a look that Hillary herself would approve. You can snag this navy blue blazer, to match your dress of course, for less than $30 off of Amazon. Much like the dress, you can wear this piece long after Halloween has passed.
