Bewitch in black...
Cheat the Halloween fancy dress code
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.
