Fashion provides plenty of iconic costume ideas, and German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld is one of the top choices. It’s a simple men’s Halloween costume choice — if you have a black suit and tie, you’re most of the way there!
- White wig
- White collared shirt
- Black tie
- Black suit (borrowed from Sean — thank you!)
- Gaudy tie clip and cuff links (tip: use women’s jewelry!)
- Black fingerless gloves
- Bonus accessories: white fluffy cat or white fan
How perfect is Erick as Lagerfeld? When it came to embodying Karl, my clothing designer/stylist friend Erick was my first pick. He has the carriage, confidence, and dare I say cockiness to pull it off. Karl would be proud.
