If your child has started to ask when they can get their driver’s license, chances are they’re a fan of singer and songwriter, Olivia Rodrigo. Honestly, you may be a fan too; the 18-year-old is super talented, and her ballads are catchy and oh-so relatable. And because of her iconic style that’s ‘90s-inspired with a slightly grunge edge, it’s a safe bet that Olivia Rodrigo costumes are going to be everywhere this Halloween.
Rodrigo, who got her start on the Disney channel, released her debut album, Sour, earlier this year, and her songs have been steadily holding spots in the top 10 of the Billboard top 100 chart. In addition to her angelic voice, she’s known for serving major looks in her music videos, at her red carpet appearances, and on her personal Instagram page. And as you’d probably guess, her amazing clothes tend to be one-of-a-kind or custom designer pieces (she also incorporates a ton of vintage and second-hand looks). But that doesn’t mean you can’t recreate Rodrigo’s looks for yourself.
Whether your child wants to channel the star this Halloween, or you and a group of friends feel like dressing like a gaggle of different versions of Olivia, we have costume ideas so you can look just like the singer, no designer pieces necessary.
