Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Costumes

 

Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Dress up as Ferris, Sloane, or Cameron and relive their adventurous struggle to take it easy for one day… and relive the 80s too! This is a great group costume for trios, for couples, or for best friends. I must say that even in today’s standards, they still look very cool.


Dress up as Ferris Bueller

Ferris Bueller Outfit

Black Military Beret
An appropriate hat for a man on a mission to slack off from school for a day!

Vintage Wayfarer Style Sunglasses
To keep his identity secret and to look extra cool, he sported a retro pair of sunglasses.

Ferris Bueller Vest Replica!
Ferris wears a sweater buttoned vest with an interesting abstract print. Luckily for us, somebody made a similar vest out of that print! This vest even has that two-tone color block detail like the one Ferris wore; that is, the color on the button area is different from that of the rest of the vest. Underneath the vest, just wear a simple white round-neck tee.

Cream-Khaki Jacket
Any cream/khaki jacket should work; anything that gives off a cool, hip vibe

White Oxford Shoes
For extra class, Ferris tops off his whole look with a pair of white oxford lace shoes.
This pair received a lot of positive reviews.

Dress up as Cameron Frye

Red Plaid Ivy Beret Hat
Cameron’s hat of choice: a red plaid beret hat. A classic look for a memorable day off from school!


Detroit Red Wings Gordie Howe T-Shirt
Interestingly enough, he pairs the hat with a casual Red Wings jersey. It wasn’t just any jersey though – it was a Gordie Howe jersey! It had the Red Wings logo on the front, and HOWE at the back with the number 9. Naturally, the jerseys have now become a vintage autographed classic and cost a pretty penny. If you are not an avid collector of signed jerseys, you can fortunately go for this graphic tee alternative. It looks good enough to wear on another casual day out!

Haggar Men’s Chino Pants
Another paradox to his outfit – a pair of office-attire worthy chino pants. Did this whole look influence Pat’s outfit in Silver Linings Playbook?

Caduceus Medical Symbol Graphic Tee
In his other memorable outfit, he wears a tee-shirt with the Caduceus medical symbol. His is a brown/army green shirt with a gold print. This one bears a close enough resemblance.

Thin Black Suspenders
What does he pair the graphic tee with? Thin suspenders! Didn’t see that one coming now did you? His bottom is still a pair of chino pants and a belt.

Dress up as Sloane Peterson

I love Sloane’s outfit! I think it’s very chic. I also love the fact that her shorts aren’t too short for comfort. Check out how you can score her look below.

Wayfarer Sunglasses
Just like her beau, she sports a vintage pair of sunglasses. Get the black frame.

Blue Tank Top
She wears a blue tank top over a white long sleeve crewneck shirt

Fringe Jacket
The most distinct element on Sloane’s outfit? The white fringe Cowboy jacket! This piece from Scully’s mimics the cowboy-rugged style that Sloane’s piece had. It’s quite pricey though so below I have a more affordable alternative.

Small Brown Messenger Bag
She carries a small messenger bag with her – a great costume piece AND practical choice – I don’t know about you, but I can never leave my house without a bag around me!

Dickies Women’s Flat Front Short
A pair of shorts with a relaxed fit like this one would be a good choice

Flat White Boots
Last but not the least, Sloane wears a pair of white boots! Based on the photo, it seems her boots also have a ruched detail like this one.
