Find a white blouse. Layer a solid colored blazer on top. While any shade will work, a navy blue or bright red blazer will look the most like a flight attendant's uniform.

Slip into a pencil skirt that is the same color as the blazer. Underneath, wear nude or white tights. Alternatively, instead of a skirt, wear slacks.

Don dress shoes, such as slip-on pumps or heels. Stick to classic styles and colors, since flight attendants are not allowed to wear shoes that are particularly flashy.

Wrap and tie a silk scarf around your neck. Wear the scarf on the outside of the blazer or tuck it into your shirt.

Pull back your hair. A classic up-do, such as a bun, chignon or French twist looks the most like a style worn by flight attendants.

Put on some make up. Some lipstick, a little mascara and some rouge helps you look a little made up without going too over the top.

Create a name tag. Trim down an index card so it is the size of a name tag, or about 1 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. Use a marker to write the name of an airline, either real or made up. Below, write your own name or a fake name you'd like to use for the costume. Tape the name tag to your blazer.
