Halloween Vibes – Clothing to Fit The Mood

Spooky season is upon us, and October is full of Halloween vibes. If you enjoy immersing yourself in the creepy atmosphere, why not let it shine through in what you wear? Halloween costumes can be fun, but let’s face it, they aren’t the height of fashion – nor are they comfortable or practical.

Play With Colour

Orange and black are the key colours associated with Halloween, but mixing in hues such as dark purple, red and Frankenstein green will layer your spooky theme outfit in a complimentary way. For smart attire, you could accessorise with brighter colours. Or perhaps you fancy sipping a Bloody Mary in a bold yet elegant statement top, such as this Orange Marciano Guess Halter Top.

Halloween Chic

There are a few overarching fashion trends that are in style for Halloween. Many people enjoy dressing up as their favourite celebrities or movie characters. While some may opt for a full costume, others may want to strive for a more subtle nod to Halloween by taking inspiration from a star or fictional character. Think Wednesday Adams, Cat Woman or Dita Von Teese. 

To turn heads by mixing style with spook, this Black Sheer Dress by Never Fully Dressed wraps at the waist and drapes beautifully, oozing gothic style. Wear with either red or purple heels to add a pop of Halloween colour.

This Black Vegan Leather dress is a perfect bat-like fashion gem. Team it with some chunky boots to set off the look. These Tamaris Zip-Up Ankle Boots are ideal. You can choose whether to add tights or accessories depending on your plans.

Top Halloween Fashion Tips

There is undoubtedly a Halloween costume out there that is ideal for you, no matter what your personal style is. So, begin preparing your outfit and get set for an amazing Halloween!

Here are some suggestions for picking a stylish Halloween ensemble:

Body Type

It’s important to consider your body type and pick clothing that accentuates your best features. Seek advice from friends or family if you’re having trouble deciding. Comfortable and flattering fits are key, so be sure to review the photos and descriptions of pieces before making a purchase.


Never be hesitant to accessorise. The addition of accessories can truly elevate your attire. This includes hats, jewellery, bags and scarves. This blood-red shoulder bag adds a drop of elegance to a spooky outfit.

Be Comfortable

The whole point of Halloween is to have fun, so make sure the clothing you choose fits you comfortably. You don’t want to be fumbling with your outfit or attempting to keep it together all night. You must also feel comfortable within yourself – fashion should reflect who you are. Not every style is for every person, so choose what helps you feel fabulous. Be imaginative and be you.

Colour Clash

Don’t be scared to clash colours – a fun colour contrast is a great way to give an outfit an instant uplift. Green and purple will give monster vibes, while striking orange against a black or smokey grey staple piece will scream Halloween.
