Coming up with a creative Halloween costume year after year is never easy, and when you’ve got the added accessory of glasses to consider, well, it can feel as though your options are pretty limited.

Wenda of Where’s Waldo?
To do this costume justice, we recommend looking into some dark-tinted sunglasses (prescription-grade if needed, which are a great investment in general) and a fabulous pastel skirt-suit or dress. If you don’t have a Kennedy-worthy matching set at your disposal, we suggest checking out your local thrift store for DIY inspiration or the closest costume shop, which are always stocked with lady-like options for these types of costumes.
