Halloween (October 31st) is just around the corner, which means you’re probably in the midst of planning the spookiest outfit to flaunt on the big day.
While many will choose to dress in a range of ghoulish and garish costumes; from ghosts and vampires to witches and zombies, it’s safe to say that these ensembles aren’t the most on-trend. If you want to dress for the occasion, but still keep a fashionable element to your outfit, why not dress in a more contemporary manner?
Of course, you can still add spookiness to your look by experimenting with your hair and makeup. For example, by adding glitter or coloured hairspray, black lipstick or white facepaint.
Take some inspiration for your Halloween outfit this year by trialling some of these wicked fashion trends:
Leather is perhaps the most timeless fashion trend, as it is one that is revisited season after season. Traditionally, leather was associated with outerwear – typically in the form of a biker jacket – but has since moved onto an array of garments; from shorts and trousers to skirts, dresses and even tops.
If you want to keep your Halloween outfit dark and mysterious, stick to an all-black leather ensemble. Or if you wish to vamp up your look, why not opt for an oxblood leather mini skirt with black fishnet tights?
However you choose to wear leather, you’ll no doubt look on-point.
Frightening faux fur
Whether you opt for a faux fur coat, scarf or handbag, there’s something about this trend that carries an air of luxury. In other words, a faux fur accessory can instantly take any look from simple to ultra glamorous.
Team your faux fur garment with a pair of patent shoes and black eyeliner to channel a gothic look that’s perfect for Halloween. You could even celebrate the spooky occasion by wearing a lavish faux fur jacket and accessorising with a pair of cat ears. Why not draw some whiskers on your face to look like a super creepy feline?
Adhering to unique textures, velvet is a great fashion choice this Halloween. The soft fabric exudes elegance and holds connotations of royalty and luxuriousness.
If you want to stand out from the crowd, choose a velvet ensemble in a rich hue like emerald green, violet or burgundy. This way, you can play around with colour and contrast your outfit with all-black accessories, ensuring your velvet piece remains the focal point.
Of course, your outfit isn’t totally finished until you add some sparkling jewels. Check out TJC’s jewellery range here to discover your perfect piece.
