Sloane Peterson Jacket

Sloane Peterson is the girlfriend of Ferris Bueller in the movie. She’s an iconic 80’s brunette bombshell with long flowing hair.

In the movie Sloan Peterson wears some olive green pleated-front shorts, a royal blue tank top, a leather white fringe jacket and her knee high off-white colored suede boots that come just below the knee.

The white leather fringe jacket is the most memorable piece of apparel that Sloan Peterson wears – it’s going to be the focal point of your Ferris Bueller girlfriend costume!

Adding the little brown leather purse she carried over her shoulder would be a nice touch too!

What Does Sloane Peterson Wear?

Sloane has your typical 80’s hot girl style about her that can’t be denied, especially by any teenage male in 1986.  Her outfit is definitely back in style these days because the vintage 1980’s look is in right now.

Ben Stein plays the hilarious boring economics teacher in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.   If you want to dress up like the Ferris Bueller Day Off boring economics teacher you need a tweed suit, dog tie and 80’s square framed glasses.  You might even want to add a touch of gray to your hair to authenticate the look.

Ferris Bueller Day Off Mean Principal Ed Rooney Costume

“What is so dangerous about a character like Ferris Bueller is he gives good kids bad ideas.”

Ed Rooney was the ruthless principal of Ferris Buellers high school.  This mean principal chased Ferris Bueller all over town in the movie to prove that he was in fact, ditching school.  By the end of the movie, he’s got himself into quite a mess and was probably better off just staying at school in his office.  Edward Rooney wears a gray suit, burgundy polka dot tie and has that infamous red mustache that makes him extra intimidating.  You can find yourself a suit at the thrift store but the mustache is an inexpensive must-have that you can get on Amazon.

Ferris Buellers Day Off Movie

“It’s a little childish and stupid, but then, so is high school.” 

What Would Ferris Say?

I love to include the quotes from the movie to help you get into character. It’s more authentic if you dish out lines from the movie while wearing your Ferris Bueller Halloween costumes.  Ferris Bueller is an 80’s icon and you have to have the cool factor to be him.

“While the rest of us were just thinking about it… Ferris borrowed a Ferrari and did it – all in a day.”
