Halloween how-to: Walter White from Breaking Bad

Jump to Comments


There were many layers to Breaking Bad‘s Walter White — dowdy-dressed chemistry teacher, underwear-wearing drug cook, and disheveled fallen hero and villain — but the look he’s perhaps best known for is as Heisenberg — the cruel, manipulative, risk-loving drug kingpin.

To get this classic look, start with — what else? — a fedora (this one is even inspired by the character!). For clothing, start with this affordable micro fleece zip jacket over this plaid button-down (it’s nearly identical to Walter’s), and complete the look with khaki pants (on sale!) for the ultimate “dad” look. If you want to go the extra mile, try this easy recipe for blue “crystal meth” rock candy, to carry with you.

Will you be dressing as Heisenberg for Halloween?
