10 Best Conservative Halloween Costumes for Modest, Stylish Women • Budget

Why should it be? Sexy fill-in-the-blank Like everyone else this Halloween? Being slutty-this or slutty-that is so cliché. Also, it’s mildly offensive that the carry-all outfit technique is the one most favored by women. Conservative Halloween costumes can’t be just as cute and interesting?

I say yes, and I hope you agree. To prove it, here are 10 conservative Halloween costume ideas you’ll love wearing.

Classic conservative Halloween costumes

Look back in time for a wealth of modest Halloween costume ideas. For example, you might think of actresses and movie characters from the 1950s and 1960s. You may have to practice your doe-eyed eyeliner, but you don’t have to show off your breasts. For example:

1. Holly Golightly

Get your hands on a black sheath dress and add big sunglasses and pearls. Pile your hair on top of your head, add some black eyeliner and put on your best sweet-girl pout. Hide a danish in a paper bag and you’re perfect from Holly Golightly Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

2. Jackie Kennedy

Transform yourself into Jackie Kennedy with a monochrome skirt suit and matching hat. Don’t forget the pearls and gloves!

Historically conservative clothing

If black eyeliner and fake eyelashes aren’t your thing, go further back in history for more outfit ideas. The American Old West presents some interesting fashion opportunities, as does ancient Rome (and really, everything in between).

3. Sharpshooter Annie Oakley or Calamity Jane

Annie Oakley and Calamity Jane were American Wild West sharpshooters. Oakley was the inspiration for the Broadway play Annie Get Your Song. A lesser-known fact is that Oakley spent most of his money during his lifetime on charities supporting women and children.

Calamity Jane earned her nickname after saving an army captain in an attack. Both women spent time showing off their shooting skills on Buffalo Bill’s famous traveling show.

For both characters, wear a brown leather outfit, cowboy boots, a hat and a fake gun. You can carry an empty bottle of whiskey for Jane, who was known to be a fan of brown liquor.

4. Minerva, goddess of wisdom

Minerva is the Roman goddess of wisdom. To honor this Halloween, wear a loose white top with pleats on the neckline of a white flowing skirt. Find yourself a warrior helmet and a fake spear on Amazon for that “don’t mess with me” vibe.

You can also find cheap Roman goddess dresses on Amazon. Many options are low cut (of course) but you can always wear a cami underneath.

Conservative clothing from pop culture

6. From Phoenix Top Gun Maverick

Slip on those combat boots, olive green pants and bomber jacket. Pull your hair back and skip makeup to let your natural beauty shine. If you can, find yourself an old motorcycle helmet and use adhesive letters (or stencils and paint) to write Phoenix on the front.

7. Young Priscilla Presley aka Mrs. Elvis

You might need a wig for this one, since young Priscilla’s hair defies gravity at times. But if you can nail the hairstyle, all you need is black eyeliner and a 50’s inspired outfit to complete the look.

8. From Galadriel ring of power

This is the simplest of our modest dresses. If you’re short on time and creative energy, pick up a Galadriel costume from Amazon. You will look beautiful in a long white gown with flowing sleeves.

9. Billie Eilish

Hilsa makes baggy cool, so why not use it to your advantage this Halloween?

You can replicate her look with some pigmented hair gel and oversized, logo sweats in a bright color. Part your hair in the middle. If you have bangs, clip them in with a plastic barrette. To stay in character, avoid smiling at all costs.

Old standby

9. The Zombie Bride

If you have a white dress that you don’t mind destroying, you can easily pull off a zombie bride dress. All you need apart from the costume is some white makeup, black makeup and fake blood. Even better if you can carry a fake cut hand for extra gore.

10. The Wicked Witch

Witches aren’t sluts, are they? According to The Wizard of Oz, witches are covered from head to toe in tall boots, long dresses, and pointy hats. This is another dress that you can easily find on Amazon. If you want to go all out, add green makeup to your face and hands.
