Halloween – a feast of dark and gothic looks

The witching hour is almost upon us and the looks on show are decidedly dark  and gothic. With Kristen Stewart and Daphne Guinness as muses, along with the high interest in Twilight sequels and all thinks vampire, there is a real fashion interest in the dark side. Leather, lace and heavy velvet in every shade of blue (midnight of course!) and black are all over the High Street and catwalks. So embrace a bit of black magic and make this Halloween the most spooky, and yet most stylish ever.

Here are some of the  key picks for the Halloween trend.

Miss Selfridge Textured maxi 

This Miss Selfridge maxi dress reminds me of that slinky Morticia Adams gown that Angelina Jolie wore to the Oscars the year she was voted best supporting actress for Girl Interrupted. Perfect for a glamorous fancy dress look.

Miss Selfridge Black lace pleated dress £47 

Love the gothic feel of this lace mini dress. The long sleeves and high neckline give this a dramatic edge, and the lace taps into the Victoriana gothic style.

Wallis Black pu pleated skirt maxi 

Wallis Black Sequin Sleeve Dress 

Wallis has a fabulous range of darkly glam black dresses. I particularly love the cape like sleeves on the black  sequined dress, sort of reminds me of a very sexy witch.

Barratts Black Zip Flower Shoe Boot 

I love these boots from Barratts. And yes,  that is a flower, but don’t you think it has a spider web feel to it?

McQ Alexander McQueen Cobweb long sleeve top £95 and black leather exposed zip skirt McQ Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen classic skull scarf £165

Alexander McQueen classic skull clutch £825 

Alexander McQueen was the King of the dark, gothic looks and so it seems fitting that the MCQ range is just full of clothes that evoke the imagery of Halloween. I just love this outfit!

Sportmax Black Vorra Elbow Length Suede & Leather Gloves 

You can tap into the look with your accessories, these Sportmax gloves are a real touch of luxury.
