Sorry good guys, your style is atrocious. Who in their right mind wears a cape and red underwear over their pants?
It’s a well known fact that villains have the best dress sense – dark suits, cool hats and…erm…spooky pyjamas, the baddies have it all
- especially when it comes to Halloween costume ideas.
Here we’ve rounded up our most stylish scoundrels, showcasing their best outfits and how you can wear them throughout the year as well as on October 31st.
Never underestimate the power of a white t-shirt, it’s the go-to tee on those mornings where you wake up late but still end up looking good. Covering one in fake blood is an easy Halloween outfit, but we’d suggest just simply rolling up the sleeves for the rest of the year.
Breaking Bad: The show that sparked a million goatees and porkpie hat sales. We personally think that Walter White brought smart hats back on-trend, and for that we thank him. YEAH B*!%CH!
Many didn’t think Heath Ledger could top Jack Nicholson’s unhinged portrayal of the Joker (helped by Jack genuinely being a little loopy), but with a methodical approach and amazing wardrobe he pulled it off. Take heed, leave the suit at home and opt for smart separates like a statement waistcoat.
Do you like Huey Lewis & The News? Us neither, but we love American Psycho and Patrick Bateman’s cult worshipped style. Our macs & trench coats are perfect for replicating the infamous moonwalk scene, and a sure fire way to getting a reservation at Dorsia…
Clad all in white, but Alex was no angel. Still, he knew how to pull off a good monochrome outfit. Dress like a droog by combining black and white, or just take note of the braces and boots for a nod to the ‘60s skinhead movement.
Sometimes less is more, as shown by Agent Smith from the Matrix. No gimmick or outrageous costume, just a sharp black suit, sunglasses and tie clip. You can also pull it out again and again for interviews and celebrations.
Technically not a villain, but he is dark and twisted so we’ll let him off. Darko’s skeleton onesie is an iconic cinematic outfit - and a comfy one at that. The bones even glow in the dark, oooooooohhhhhhhhhh!
