How to Be Chip and Joanna Gaines for Halloween
Learn how to nail the best couples costume of the year.
I hope you were on your Insta game last week, because if ever there was an Instagram video that was ridiculously adorable, it was last Wednesday. Watch and see what I mean:
After watching mini Chip and mini Joanna do their thing a couple times (read: at least 10 times), I got to thinking. Hubs and I don’t have a Halloween costume yet; we’re both equally obsessed with Fixer Upper and Chip and Jo attire seems pretty comfortable. After all, they’re both jeans-and-boots kind of people. Also a bonus, we already own most of the components of the costume.
If you’re a fellow costume procrastinator, consider being the charming Chip or lovable Jo for Halloween. I’m breaking down exactly how to do it.
To Be Joanna:
It all starts with those gorgeous locks. You’re in luck if you have long, dark hair. Middle part it; add some waves and you’re all set. If your natural hair just isn't going to cut it, consider buying a Joanna-esque wig.

The Clothes + Shoes
For your clothing, think casual but cute. Joanna often wears a stylish jacket over a solid-colored shirt. Two great jacket options are the popular military-style jacket or the fitted leather jacket. Tip: To really get in the Joanna spirit, practice working shiplap into casual conversations.

Complete your outfit with the jeans-and-boots combo. Joanna loves a good pair of skinny jeans, and she’s known for rocking classic leather boots or trendy booties.
To Be Chip:
The Top Half
Chip frequently wears Magnolia Market gear, so if you’ve ever wanted to buy Magnolia apparel, now is the time. He usually wears a casual collared shirt or tee, and in the cooler months, you can catch him in a vest or zip-up hoodie. You can’t go wrong with the #DemoDay shirt and Magnolia vest combo.
The Bottom Half
For Chip's lower half, wear mid-wash jeans and leather work boots. Clip some tools to your belt to complete the ensemble.
Most importantly, don't forget to tell trick-or-treaters that season 4 premieres November 29 on HGTV.
