The Fashion Girl’s Guide to Halloween Dressing

Had enough of ghouls, ghosts and gore but can’t find a Halloween outfit that doesn’t involve the old witch’s hat stashed in the back of your wardrobe? This year, keep your look frighteningly fashionable with our spooktacular guide to creepily chic Halloween outfits inspired by the latest runway trends. 

Darkness Falls

Embrace the darkness and look to the Alexander Wang and Saint Laurent autumn/winter 2015 shows where fierce Goth girls stomped down the runways in looks which had just the right amount of spooky style. To recreate this, dress top to toe in black and mix textures as you layer to add dimension to your outfit. Complete your ensemble with a tough biker jacket, a pair of high heeled ankle boots and a gothic studded bag.

The Devil Wears Red

A devilish colour palette of blood red and hypnotic black is perfect for a seductive Halloween look. Opt for a full length siren red gown for a sophisticated evening soirée or choose a delicately decaying red and black rose print cocktail dress for super spellbinding style.

Mid-Century Madness

Turn back the clocks to the mysterious days of the nineteenth century and dress to impress in a creepy concoction of ruffles and lace this Halloween. Accessorise with vintage-inspired gem stone jewellery and statement-making knee high boots or cutout lace up court shoes for a chilling twist on the Victoriana trend. To finish this darkly decadent outfit, tease your hair into a dishevelled up-do and add a swipe of white mascara for a Miss Havisham-inspired beauty look as seen on the models at Alexander McQueen.
