Janis Joplin was defined as much by her incredible voice as she was by her style, so it’s no wonder dressing up as “Pearl” is such a classic costume for Halloween.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Round glasses. (Like these ones from Party City.)
  • Feather boa. (There’s a TON to choose from at Party City.)
  • Layered necklaces. (Like these “Love Beads” from Party City.)
  • Crochet vest. (Like this one at Amazon.)
  • Flared jeans/pants. (The bolder the color, the better.)
