Halloween is here again and so is plenty of costume inspiration. If you loved the iconic BBC drama Peaky Blinders, then the Shelbys could make for an ideal Halloween costume this year.


Peaky Blinders has been a style phenomenon in the UK ever since its release, with sales of flat caps rising by 83 per cent between 2016 and 2017 thanks to the huge popularity of the show. Now, following the show's final season — which came to our screens earlier this year — dressing up as the Shelbys could be just what the doctor ordered.

If you want to join in with the Halloween festivities but don't want to be dressed head to toe in some plastic-y, latex monstrosity of a costume, then a Peaky Blinders outfit could be the best Halloween costume for you! Slip into a suit, add a few styling touches to evoke the series's well-loved characters and you're in business. We're taking a look at a full array of Peaky Blinders costumes to help you get suited and booted for Halloween.

If you want to go the extra mile, you could even take a trip to the barbers and get yourself a Peaky Blinders haircut, the popularity of which has been another key indicator of the show's cultural impact. They've been in such high demand that GQ wrote a guide on how to ask your barber for one.

Don't fear though, our costume suggestions won't require you to lop off all your hair or buy a very expensive suit. The RadioTimes.com team has hunted down some great options so you can hit the town — or your next Halloween party — in style as a Peaky Blinder.
