9 Stylish Halloween Costumes Inspired by Your Favorite Book Characters

If you're a bookworm, you probably know what it feels like to get a little too attached to your favorite fictional character. Even after you finish the last sentence, they tend to stick with you throughout the years, whether it's because they taught you something about yourself, the world, or how you want to live in it—and sometimes, they also influence your sense of style.

A few weeks ago, we honored our favorite book characters and indulged our interior design obsession by imagining how they would decorate their homes today, and now we're taking a sartorial approach. With Halloween just around the corner, we figured it was good timing to imagine how the likes of everyone from Ophelia of Hamlet to Elio and Oliver of Call Me By Your Name would dress today. Whether you want to look stylish and use clothing you probably already have or you'd prefer to go all-out and win the Halloween costume crown at a monster bash, these costumes inspired by your favorite characters could be just what you're looking for.
