2018 was a huge year for Cardi B’s career. She released her debut album, became the first female rapper with three No. 1 singles on Billboard’s Hot 100, and had a childhood photo take off as one of the year’s biggest memes. It’s likely that as October 31 approaches, many of you will want to channel the Trini-Dominican rapper for Halloween, but because Cardi had so many interesting and noteworthy moments this year, you might find yourself feeling a little overwhelmed.

Luckily, we’ve got some ideas for you and a guide to how to achieve the look. While it’d be difficult to copy Cardi’s looks to the tee (she wears a lot of designer duds and embellished clothing), we found options that capture her outfits. Check them out below.

The Leather Look

With a long pink wig and all-leather look, Cardi posted an outfit that showed off her bold, daring style. While it’s not one of her most popular looks, it’s an easy look to pull off and one that captures the kind of fun Cardi likes to have with fashion.

The Cardi Meme

One of Cardi’s most popular photos of the year came from her childhood. It resonated with so many people because Cardi’s pose – her hand placed on her hip and a know-it-all face – reminded people of the times their siblings or cousins (or themselves) were about to tell on someone.

This is a fairly uncomplicated outfit to pull off; as a matter of fact, you may already own some of the items.

At the iHeartRadio Awards, where she won the best new hip-hop artist award, Cardi wore a burgundy Christian Siriano dress. While it’d be difficult to copy this exact look, you can emulate it with a little creativity.
