I’m sure we’ve all heard the news by now: Don’t Worry Darling, a new movie starring Harry Styles and Florence Pugh, is now out.
Directed by Olivia Wilde, Don’t Worry Darling is about a housewife and her charming husband, who works for a mysterious company that fuels their glamorous life. But as the wife starts becoming skeptical of her husband and his job, things take a turn for the eerie. The movie has no shortage of romance, thrill, and Harry Styles — all things Gen Z loves. And with Oct. 31st coming up, I’m expecting to see lots of Don’t Worry Darling Halloween costumes this year.
Naturally, given that the movie is set in the 1950s, the internet is loving the wardrobe choices in this film. It’s clear Arianne Phillips, the movie’s costume designer, did an amazing job at capturing ‘50s style — in fact, she’s already won awards for her styling choices, including a Campari Passion for Film award.
Don’t Worry Darling has garnered a ton of hype online — and not only because of the rumors of on-set and off-set drama. Given that the movie released just a month before Halloween, we figured we’d show you how to replicate some of the outfits in the film.
- Blue-and-white checkered dress
Wearing a dress like this totally captures Alice’s style — especially if you dress it up a little (so, you know, people don’t think you’re dressing up as Dorothy). Try pairing this dress with some sandals, dangly earrings, and a voluminous, half-updo hairstyle.
- Flowy blouse & bucket hat
The characters in Don’t Worry Darling spend lots of time outside, hence why this look is also based on a poolside scene. It’s no wonder the movie was filmed in Palm Springs. Take a straw or crochet bucket hat paired with a floral blouse, and you’ve successfully copied this movie’s summery ’50s style.

- Long floral dress
Alice and her friends are often seen wearing elegant floral dresses — and I can’t argue with that fashion choice, because they look amazing. All you need to capture this look is a maxi dress, some gold hoops, and a curled half-updo.

- Studded cardigan
I know Halloween essentially means winter in some places, so here’s a warmer option. Try a white dress or tank-and-skirt combo under this cardigan, and finish the look with braided hair and pearl earrings.
Listen, I know it’s fall, but sundresses are a must if you’re dressing in Don’t Worry Darling style. Plus, there are so many cheap options out there. To really sell “’50s housewife,” why not add an apron like Alice does?
