I don't really go in for dressing up at Halloween. But what I do actually do is add a little scare to my flare with Halloween details. And this year, the high street shops have gone cray-cray for it. Nothing beats the effect of skeleton socks or a witches hat at your work meeting this week. Ah go on, we all need a bit of fun!
Now, if you are planning to add a little trick or treat to your wardrobe this week in advance of the night of all things scary, then I have some fab bits and bobs to add to your shopping list this week.
If you are heading out to trick or treat, then you can even wear a little black dress with some scary tights or socks. Add a mask or headpiece and you can stay chic while still entering into the spirit (get it?). Speaking of headpieces, I've found an abundance of ghoulish and witch-like hair bands that I think I'll have to get this week. Try doing your make up a bit more, well, vampish and try a Halloween hair style with one of these fab head bands from Topshop.
But if you want to totally embrace the Halloween vibe, then try wearing Halloween "inspired" pieces rather than donning the whole costume malarkey, which, let's face it, requires a load of work. The fashion-based ideas, do not. It's just a matter of a trip to the shops.
You see, none of the above are too scary to wear? I think by wearing a jeans and t-shirt, and layering the fringed cape over it, you get a very chic Halloween inspired outfit, no? Or if you want to embrace the orange factor, try a top with a black leather skirt and heels of you are off to a party. I, myself, rather love the spider web loafers from Asos.com. Not just for Halloween!
Are you dressing up? If so, what's your costume choice this year?
