Preppy Halloween Costume Ideas

Our Preppy Halloween Costume Ideas for 2013

The leaves are turning yellow and red, the days are getting shorter and the calendar says it’s October, which can only mean one thing: Halloween is just around the corner! While Nantucket Brand may not be the first store to pop into your mind while thinking of Halloween costume ideas, several of our items are perfect for "preppy" Halloween costumes. We posted some preppy Halloween costume ideas two years ago and have an update for you today! Here are some ideas on how to look like you swing with the country club set this October.

Tennis Player

Whether you’re channeling the great Steffi Graf or up-and-coming champions like Maria Sharapova, Nantucket Brand has everything you need to look ready for Wimbledon. Our women's cable tennis sweater or women's tennis polo combined with a simple and elegant white tennis skirt make for a classic tennis outfit. Combine with a headband, knee socks, and an old tennis racket and people may well think you just returned from an ATP World Tour!

Simply combine a Cashmere sweater with a Madras skirt to bring everyone’s favorite teen detective to life. We’ve even got you covered with a magnifying glass to complete the look. It doesn’t take a super-sleuth to figure out that this is a great costume!

Another great costume idea would be to combine one of our many women's polo shirts with a classic twill skirt, along with a baseball hat and some cleats to get the look of a pro golfer. Men can use one of our wide men's polo shirts, available in several colors along with a pair of khaki pants. You’ll look so believable, you may get tired of answering questions about Augusta and where you store your Green Jacket in the off-season!

80s Frat Guy

An absolute staple of any classic 80’s hijinks movie, the preppy frat guy is an American movie icon. We offer a wide range of men’s polo shirts available in several colors. Accompanied by one of our preppy sweaters tied around your neck and some retro style sunglasses, you’ll look like you’re about to pull a prank on Delta House or plot double-secret probation with the Dean.
