Hall and Oates- The Perfect Costumes for Cosplaying Friends

Hall and Oates costumes are a great opportunity for friends or partners to do a costume look together. As the group was very popular and active during the 80s, expect lots of 80s stereotypes such as leather vests, double denim, and mullets. Hall and Oates performed a combination of pop and rock songs, though they’re wardrobe seemed to be a very rocker chic style. Hall was a fan of blazers, graphic tees, and denim jackets, while Oates wore lots of leather, boots, and vests of different materials.

About Hall and Oates

Hall and Oates were a pop/rock duo in the early 70s through the late 80s. They are known for their amazing number of chart hits that have charted high and a number of musical charts. The duo consists of Daryl Hall who, most of the time, acts as the main vocal, and John Oates who plays the electric guitar and provides backing vocals. Though the group is still together to this day, they do not have as large a following or the fame they did back in the 80s.
