Breakfast at Tiffany’s Book

Since this is a book blog, I first recommend that you carry a Breakfast at Tiffany’s book with your Holly Golightly sleep mask Halloween costume. Or, at least read it to get into character!

It’s one of my favorite books of all time. It’s also very short, so if you haven’t read it yet, what are you waiting for?! It’s mesmerizing and unforgettable.


Tuxedo Shirt

Next, you will need a tuxedo shirt for the main piece of your costume. I found several great options of varying prices on Amazon, including the one I am wearing above. I’m 5’4″ and the length was fine on me.


Sleep Mask / Tassel Earplugs

Aside from a tuxedo shirt, a “Tiffany blue” sleep mask and tassel earplugs are quintessential parts of this particular Holly Golightly Halloween costume. I found several options on Amazon, including the set I am wearing above.


Slippers

You can play around with what kind of slippers to wear with your costume. I found several affordable options on Amazon, like these super soft slippers that get rave reviews. They come in a variety of colors too!

Note: When I wore this costume, I wore Birdies, which are sophisticated slipper shoes. I have several pairs, including the ones with the big pom on them, and I find them to be very comfortable both indoors and outdoors, but I definitely recommend that you size up 1/2 size.


“Cat”

Lastly, if you really want a “next level” Holly Golightly Halloween costume, carry a stuffed animal of Holly’s orange tabby “cat with no name.”
