The 4 Chicest Ways to Dress Up As a Cat for Halloween

Dressing up as a cat for Halloween has become such a collegiette stereotype, right? If you’re wearing a latex catsuit, then definitely yes. So ditch that lame (and extremely uncomfortable) getup for one of these 4 ultra-chic cat ensembles.

1. You’ve gotta be kitten me

Topshop jacket



High rise shorts




Gone are the days when you had to worry about people guessing what your costume is supposed to be. Adding a grunge vibe to this look, we paired a denim jacket, black shorts, lace-up boots and—you guessed it!—cat tights with this standout Wildfox jumper.

2. Paws-itively purr-fect

Topshop denim jumpsuit



Charlotte Russe black flat shoes




An unoriginal copycat—pun intended—would likely wear a black jumpsuit with her cat mask, but we’re trying something different. Black overalls, to be exact. Plus, you can wear this outfit all day long before putting on your mask for all those parties you’ll be hitting up.

3. Meow or later


Kate Spade long sleeve sweater






This cozy look is fit for any day of the year. But ideally, we’re picturing ourselves watching Hocus Pocus in our beds while donning this cuddly sweater-and-joggers combination on All Hallows’ Eve. Socks, glasses and a twist scarf for that must-have topknot complete your “Wake me up when it’s November” ensemble.

4. Bad cat-titude



Nordstrom frilly socks





Black floppy hat



For the cat lover of the bunch, the subtle meow-factor on this collared LBD is tops. A cute cat clutch and cat-eye shades hint at your obsession with felines, too. Frilly socks that play peek-a-boo at the top of your ankle boots and a floppy fall hat ensure a feminine edge.

Which of these looks is your fave, collegiettes?
