These ‘Ocean's 8’ Group Costume Ideas Are The Girl Power Inspo You Need
The trick to doing a group costume set for a Halloween party is to get as many people to participate as you can. Foursomes are perfect to portray tightknit groups, but what if your squad has double that number? There aren't a lot of sets of women friends who can fit an eight-some, and still have everyone stand as their own character. That is until Ocean's 8 came out this year. These Ocean's 8 group costume ideas are perfect for a diverse group of girls to sashay into a party and slay.
The problem is, some of the serious looks from Ocean's 8 are from the Met Gala scenes, and those are dresses that, though everyone would love to wear one, budgets don't support, especially for a single evening. So unless you're willing to pull a Pose and rob a museum, chances are, you're going to have to aim slightly lower. Thankfully, Amazon has almost everything anyone would need to pull off all eight of the Ocean's 8 ladies and their looks.
That's not to say you have to dress down for all these outfits, Debbie Ocean wouldn't be herself without a fur coat. But there are ways to do it and not break the bank.
Debbie's signature look is a black outfit and the big white fur coat. You can go with a little black dress ($18 on Amazon) to mimic her "just out of jail" look, or a black catsuit ($8 on Amazon) like in the ending train scene. Just don't skip the faux fur coat ($23 on Amazon) or the long ironed brown hair ($10 on Amazon).
Though everyone remembers Lou's green three-piece velvet suit, the practical option is to go with her daywear outfit. It's still flared velvet pants ($20 on Amazon), a blouse ($6 on Amazon), and a vest ($20 on Amazon), plus a loosely-tied tie ($8 on Amazon.) Add a blonde flip wig ($16 on Amazon) and a hard stare.
Listen, it doesn't matter what kind of evening gown your wear as long as it's dark bubblegum pink. Amazon has them as cheap as $20. What matters is that you wear the biggest, ugliest fake diamond necklace you can get your hands on. Etsy has a ton of "Statement Crystal Necklaces" that will do, which can run from $20 to $100, depending on your taste.
