When you ask most people what they love about the month of October, they will probably mention Halloween in their answer. At one time Halloween seemed to be more popular in America than in the UK, but that is no longer the case. Trick or Treat, Halloween parties and dressing up are all much anticipated and enjoyed, and, as the end of the month is drawing ever nearer, people are beginning to think about their costumes.
There are plenty of celebrities to take your Halloween inspiration from, because, let’s face it, some celebrities love nothing more than getting dressed up in their best spooky costumes come All Hallows Eve. Kim Kardashian, Kate Moss, Heidi Klum, Hilary Duff and Christina Aguilara have all been photographed in some pretty amazing costumes over the years, although for some, the link to Halloween is more tentative. (Yes, I’m talking to you Kim.)
Topshop has launched a fantastic Halloween section which allows you to bring the fashion of the witching hour into your daily wardrobe. These are pieces you could wear to attend an Halloween party if you wanted to avoid a full costume, or just fun items that you could wear almost anytime of the year. I love the Spooky embroidered slippers that have just a touch of Charlotte Olympia to them, and the metallic cross back midi dress is super sexy and would look so glam teamed with a black Morticia wig and the red devils horns.
I’m ending this post in a slightly different way by sharing two of my favourite Halloween themed songs – Just because. Enjoy!
What are you planning to do this Halloween? Will it involve dressing up (keep those answers clean folks!)
