Factors to consider when buying pirate costumes online

Types of pirate outfits to shop for

A billowy shirt is essential for pretty much all pirate costumes. A fancy vest and a red stylish jackets for men combination take your pirate look from deckhand to captain and keep you warm on chilly October nights! You can also pair a detailed red coat with cool shirts for men, black medieval-inspired pants, and cool men's boots to bring out the vibe. Breeches are essential for men’s pirate costumes, but women can wear them too!

However, for women pirate fashion, you might want to swap out breeches for frilled skirts or alternative dresses paired with pirate vests, especially if you’re going for a more femme look. And don’t forget a vintage corset! On top of showing off your gorgeous figure, corsets are a perfect finishing touch to lend your pirate costume an authentic historical feel.

Want something edgier? Pirates were a superstitious bunch, so add some occult touches for some dark but historically accurate edginess. You can also inject some fantasy into your pirate costume with steampunk style to help you look like you stepped right out of Treasure Planet.

Accessories to shop for

A hip flask makes for the perfect pirate accessory for both men and women, especially at any BYOB parties you might attend. Men and women should also be sure to wear plenty of gold jewelry, particularly skull rings and skull earrings. Facial piercings are also a great choice if you’re going for a unique gothic look or are channeling a pirate from the oceans around Africa, India, Mesoamerica, or the Middle East. 

No piercing? No problem! You can always use fake jewelry for your pirate style. Put the final touches on your pirate outfit with a leather belt and a hat or bandana.
