Every year, the return of Halloween sees thousands of people trawling through fancy dress shops, all eager to find something spooky or witty to wear. From the frightfully scary to the most weird and wonderful, we have certainly seen plenty of costumes over the years.
But what if the thought of dressing up fills you with dread? Instead of hiding away at home in the dark, waiting for the trick-or-treaters to leave your doorstep, why not get involved in your own way?
Whatever your plans are for October 31st – a dark-themed dinner party, a frightfully fun night on the town with your pals, or even a late night movie screening – there are plenty of ways for you to embrace the festivities with your dress code.
Therefore, we’ve compiled a list of scarily good outfit suggestions for you to try out this season. Check them out below!
1. All black everything
Style notes: Finally, a chance to wear all black! Flattering and super chic, you can show off your dark side this Halloween with this silky satin blouse. Complete with your go-to black jeans and simple heels for an effortlessly easy look.
2. Opulent Velvet
Style notes: Autumn is that time of year where we can dust the cobwebs off our favourite velvet pieces and slide them to the front our wardrobes. Channeling images of crystal balls and tarot cards, wearing velvet will give a nod towards Halloween without making you look like you’ve gone overboard.
3. Give It Some Glitter
Style notes: Great for the party season, mixing silver glitter with black mesh fabrics gives a glamorous witchy allure, without making you look like you’re in fancy dress. You can never have too much sparkle, so grab all those glittery accessories and you’re good to go!
4. Wild Thing
Style notes: Fed up of putting the same cat costume on every year? Why not amp up the glam and swap for animal print? Already on-trend for this season, just match with a pair of PU leggings and strappy heels for instant sophistication.
5. Novelty Lover
