No Halloween would be complete without our favourite gangster Tommy Shelby, and thankfully his look is easily achievable with just a dapper tweed suit and cap. You want to keep to a dark and neutral colour palette with this one, coordinate the tie or if you're going for Tommy Shelby in his politician days pop on a patterned tie and round rimmed glasses. Don't forget the old fashioned pocket watch to hang from the waistcoat, a Shelby classic.

A classic look and one that most people will have in the depths of their wardrobe, it's time to dust off the black suit, tie and a crisp white shirt. The MIB look is super easy to nail and will keep you looking suave on the way to the party. Just make sure you remember the all important blacked out glasses to keep your disguise and recruit a trusty companion to play the Agent K to your Agent J.

Probably the most stylish psychopath you've ever known, Hannibal Lecter makes for a great character to base your costume on. Impersonate him with an unsuspecting and power demanding three piece suit in a bold check paired with a paisley patterned tie. In a look so sharp and pristine, Lecter deflects all suspicions of wrongdoing. Adopt these style features and you'll portray the elegant yet barbaric character of Hannibal perfectly.
