Halloween is coming up and this year’s celebrations should be special.

Retro Sailors

There’s something classic about a red, white, and blue color scheme. Dressing up as retro-inspired sailors will achieve that timeless look. It’s all hands ondeck with these nautical Halloween costumes. Men can wear white or navy-blue sailor uniforms, finished off with a sailor hat and sailor scarf. Women can wear white or navy-blue sailor-style dresses or wide leg jeans with striped shirts. For a more pinup look, go with a sailor-style bodysuit or sailor shirt with high waisted shorts.


If you want less of a Fourth of July look, but still want classic nautical Halloween costumes, pirates are the way to go. Popular for themed charter parties, a pirate-themed party allows you to be creative. While you can easily buy a Captain Jack Sparrow or Captain Hook costume from your local party supply store, creating your own pirate outfit isn’t difficult at all. Flowing shirts, baggy pants, thick belts, and tall boots is all you need. Corsets and long coats are easy Amazon purchases.
