Halloween fashion

Halloween themed clothing doesn’t have to mean full on costumes that are reserved for the night of October 31st.

12202288_932144426832799_1226801625_nHigh street shops now roll out festive items whenever they can, and even though it’s all a bit of a money making scheme, we can’t help but fall for it.

Simple, spooky accents on clothes make Autumn dressing that bit more fun and the Halloween theme much more wearable.

Keep the witches hat and devil horns in the fancy dress drawer and opt for something more subtle instead. Black is usually the colour of choice, but deep purples or greens work well to add an air of darkness to your outfit.

Topshop and Asos have some pretty fancy designs, but if you’d rather not splash out on something you won’t get to wear too much, Primark is always a good shout.

Dark makeup is another great way to add some Halloween to your day-time look. Purple lipstick is probably the most popular choice, but why not dare to try a black lip colour? If eyeshadow is more your thing, pair a dark smoky eye with minimal face makeup and a nude lip to make it more wearable for the day.

If you really want to have some fun and aren’t bothered by a few weird looks in the street, why not take things one step further?

Whether you’re a ‘trick or treat’ fan or would rather just ignore the event altogether, you can still get into the Halloween spirit while remaining stylish.
