Are you finding it hard to select the perfect outfit for Halloween? Worry not! I’ve got you covered. Let me introduce you to Suki from Fast and Furious—one of the most loved characters from the series despite only making one appearance in the whole franchise.
Suki’s wardrobe through the films have gone down in the pop culture zeitgeist as the epitome of Y2K dressing—mirroring the naughties look that we so commonly see today on the runways of Blumarine and Diesel.
Played by Devon Aoki, this role solidified Aoki’s career as an It-girl during the early 2000s. Suki, a fierce and daring female racer who leads a crew of only women, played a pivotal role in the film’s plot as she served as a key ally to the main character, Brian O’Conner (played by the late Paul Walker).
So, why not dress up as Suki and make a statement this Halloween? The best part is that her outfits consist of basic pieces like tank tops, making them versatile enough to wear again and again.
Below, we unlock the secrets to Suki’s bombshell look for Halloween this year.
“What’s up, Bullitt?”
This ensemble has become an embodiment of Suki’s character as it is the very outfit that she donned when she first graced the screen. Its unique and alluring design immediately caught the audience’s attention, making it one of the most unforgettable costumes of that time.
The outfit comprises of layered crop tops paired with fuchsia lace-up chaps—a look that is truly iconic and yet, difficult to replicate. The pants are hard to come by, so many have resorted to crafting them themselves, or opting for a simpler version of the bottoms. Whereas for the top, all you need is a purple and a fuchsia cropped tank top and layer the purple top over the fuchsia. When it comes to footwear, opt for a pair of comfortable sneakers, preferably in white or black. Alternatively, you can also go for a pair of ankle boots that will perfectly complement your Suki-inspired outfit.
For her makeup, Suki keeps it very simple and natural but she does have a goddess-like glow—who has time for makeup when you’re a badass racer? Suki’s hair is laid back, messy and straight. To achieve this you’ll want to straighten your hair (if your hair isn’t already naturally straight hair) and then use some mousse or hairspray to achieve that messy look.
Suki Goes Grunge
The second outfit is an absolute breeze to recreate, as it calls for only a few simple pieces. Start with a low-waisted red plaid skirt and pair it with a white cropped tank, and add a chunky belt to cinch your waist and give the look some edge. Go for a pair of boots, ankle or knee-high, that will perfectly complement the outfit.
To really capture Suki’s playful spirit, add a charming braid to your hair—it’s the perfect finishing touch to this flirty and fun ensemble. And for makeup, keep it natural and effortless to let the outfit really shine.
Start off with a dewy base, you can achieve this by moisturising before you apply your makeup and avoid foundation, instead opting for a skin tint or concealer. Add some blush to get the sunkissed look, some gloss to make your lips look juicy and you will be good to go!
“Ready and Go!”
Finally, for the third outfit, it will take a bit of DIY magic to achieve the look but the results will be worth it. Simply paint on or iron on a number 8 patch to a white cropped top, and pair it with lace-up jeans in a shade of fuschia. Or for the low effort approach, add a varsity inspired crop top to your cart and some bright pink flared denim. Pair the outfit with some white sneakers to achieve the racer girl look.
The brief for hair and beauty? Unkempt and au natural. When it comes to hair, you want to apply some texturizing spray or holding gel to your hair, and then tousle your locks with your fingers. For added volume, you can try flipping your head upside down while doing this.
If you’re looking for a natural look but want more coverage, use a skin tint or a concealer for your base. Apply your blush on the apple of your cheeks to soften your look and achieve a rounder appearance like Suki. For the lips you want to use a lipstick shade that is closest to your natural colour.
