Halloween Fashion Picks

I used to love dressing up for Halloween back in my student days. I’ve gone as everything from Cleopatra to a Top Gun pilot and Elvis to one half of Wayne’s World. But these days, without any Halloween parties or nights out planned, my costumes are reserved to slightly more low-key Halloween fashion picks. If you’re struggling for last minute costume ideas or just fancy getting in the Halloween spirit without going too over the top, here are my top Halloween fashion picks from the highstreet.

Basic Witches T-shirt by New Look · Velvet Cat Bodycon Dress by ASOS · Twilight Bat Necklace by Tatty Devine · Fright Night Ticket Coin Purse by New Look · Spot Mesh Bunny Ears by Topshop · Inhibition Lipstick by Topshop · Suedette Peep Toe Ghillie Heels by New Look

The Velvet Cat dress from ASOS is amazing, it even has a little tail at the back! However I think my days of wearing see-through bodycon dresses are over, so I’ve popped another couple of dress options in the lil’ widget below. Dark red velvet dresses just scream Halloween to me – in fact I have distinct memories of wearing one (along with an old net curtain dyed black to wear as a cape) to a Brownies Halloween party and I won best costume prize so, you know, a red velvet dress is essential.

For some super easy, understated Halloween costumes you can’t go wrong with these two options: witch or animal with ears. Cat, mouse, rabbit… whatever you fancy. Pair the Basic Witches t-shirt with a black midi skirt, the witchy heeled boots and some burgundy lipstick and you’ve got an instant stylish witch costume.

If you just fancy a couple of Halloween fashion accessories rather than a full outfit, treat yourself to a Fright Night Ticket Purse or the cuuuute little sparkly Bat Necklace. Halloween, sorted!

    I haven’t dressed up for Halloween in a few years, but as Ada gets older I’ll definitely have to put more effort in! I love the little cat velvet dress.
