Nap Dress

You don't need a fancy ball gown to create a Bridgerton Halloween costume. Copy the simple-yet-elegant style the Bridgerton girls are known for wearing for a costume that's comfortable and on-theme. And luckily, nap dresses are in style right now, so you can absolutely wear this look again (though maybe without the gloves).

Statement Necklace

A simple dress requires a statement necklace, much like the one Prince Friedrich gives Daphne before the ball in season 1. This option is sparkly and just the right amount of over-the-top. At $32 with free shipping anywhere in the United States, this is a purchase even Lady Featherington would approve of.

Prepare for the ball (er, Halloween party) by curling your hair and accessorizing with a sparkly hair comb. The Bridgerton girls frequently accessorize with hair clips, combs, and feathers so you can't go wrong with a bold look. This shop has more than 3,000 five-star review, and the comb ships free anywhere in the U.S.

Velvet Ballet Flats

The ladies of Bridgerton are rarely caught in heels (after all, that would make running through dark gardens with an off-limits love interest very difficult) so for this costume, choose a simple ballet flat instead. This pink velvet option is pretty and practical, since you can re-wear them all winter.
