How to Be Chip and Joanna Gaines for Halloween
Learn how to nail the best couples costume of the year.
Remeber this gem? If ever there was an Instagram video that was ridiculously adorable, it's this one:
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 5 premieres in November on HGTV.
