If dressing up in cat ears, cloaks or, god forbid, as a slutty pumpkin isn’t your idea of a good Halloween, then why not embrace the spooky spirit in a slightly more subtle way! You can still dress to kill without going for all out fancy dress, and I’ve got some alternatives for you…
I couldn’t possibly overlook the knitwear-of-the-moment from J.W. Anderson at Topshop. This jumper and the navy blue ghost version just flew off the rails, especially after the likes of Alexa Chung and Daisy Lowe were been seen sporting them. Hats off to you if you can get your hands on one of these!
Dark lips are bang on trend this Autumn so a new lippy can most definitely be justified!
Leather is everywhere at the moment, and this skirt makes it surprisingly easy to wear. Paired with some killer heels (like these Topshop ones!) it’s perfect for a Halloween night out!
Masculine watches are a huge accessory trend at the moment, but the skull detail gives this one that extra edge!
If black nails seem a bit too scary for you, try a less harsh shade like a deep purple or blood red. For the extra-adventurous, these skull nail-wraps should do the trick!
I’m all for a statement necklace and this one is just…wow!
Skulls are all over the jewellery stands at the moment, and make a nice change from girly pieces.
A pair of patterned tights can give some edge to any outfit, and these ones are particular suitable!
I hope the fancy-0-dress phobics among you are feeling a little more enthusiastic about Halloween now! It’s all about the sweets anyway!
