Be­witch in black...

Cheat the Hal­loween fancy dress code

Irish Sunday Mirror - - STYLE ON SUNDAY -

IF your idea of fancy dress is more Er­derm gown and less Stephen King’s blood-soaked Car­rie then there are ways to cheat a Hal­loween dress code. Granted you may be branded a par­ty­pooper for not fully get­ting into spirit – but it’ll prob­a­bly be by some­one dressed up as a Play­boy Bunny.

We are huge fans of Hal­loween but there are only so many times you can dress up as a sexy witch and who has the time or en­ergy to cre­ate an orig­i­nal?

But there are other op­tions, such as a re-wear­able black dress or nov­elty knit, for those who want to avoid the fangs and fake-blood this year.

Lust­ing over a black dress? Hal­loween is a great ex­cuse to in­vest in a dress you love rather than an out­fit that’s only go­ing to be worn once. A clas­sic black dress will work over­time for you win­ter wardrobe, es­pe­cially around the Christ­mas hol­i­day party sea­son.

We love New Look’s dra­matic high­neck maxi dress (€49.99), while & Other Sto­ries’ vel­vet dress (€99) is a time­less piece that will never go out of style.

Fans of the ro­man­tic goth look should in­vest in a sexy lace blouse, such as H&M’S V-neck satin blouse (€27.99) that can also dou­ble up as work­wear with trousers.

Not just for Christ­mas, a nov­elty jumper or t-shirt can also get you through this sar­to­rial hell. If you don’t want to buy a full cos­tume then there are loads of freaky ac­ces­sories on of­fer at the mo­ment.

Get ex­tra fash­ion points for any­thing with a chic black veil, which is also great for giv­ing and get­ting deathly stares.

We love hal­loween ...but who has time to cre­ate an orig­i­nal?
