For my second Halloween look that’s not a costume, I’ve decided to go for something a bit more modest that could be worn in most office settings. Something perfect for a day-to-night look around the office before heading out to some themed drinks after work. Because being practical is important to me, I also wanted to bring in key pieces that could be worn another time, so that the outfit wouldn’t be restricted to being worn just one day of the year. I think I’ve managed that with this look.
Bag: Skinnydip London
You’ll recognise this bag from yesterday’s Halloween look, and it’s making an appearance for today’s look. I love that it adds a pop of colour, and feels on-theme in that Rocky Horror kind of way.
To keep the theme I’ve gone for some skeleton tights! I love that the skeletons are dancing here, and they also glow in the dark which is a nice touch.
Shoes: THE WHITEPEPPER
Again, I’m wearing my chunk sandals by THE WHITEPEPPER. I like that the tops have a metallic, glossy finish, but I especially like the platform look for this style. However, another pair of shoes – such as black flats or ankle boots – would also work with this outfit.
If you read this blog regularly you’ll recognise this necklace from a recent look. Because it has a bit of a mystical vibe to it I was keen to incorporate it with this look to channel my inner Halloween Witch.
To give a bit of a ‘witchy’ feel, I went for a little black dress. By doing this I’m hoping to get more use out of the dress another time, and I expect it will look fine with one of my many kimono jackets.
I went for this particular dress because of the V neck, which works so well with this particular necklace.
To help keep with the theme I went for a bit of a “gothy” makeup look. I went heavy on the cat eye and mascara with dark brown eyeshadow, paired down the blush, played up the bronzer to contour my cheekbones and then finished it off with a dark purple lipstick.
Hair clips: H&M (sold out online), other options via ASOS
For the finishing touch: skeleton hand hair clips! These are a great way to bring a bit of seasonal spook to an outfit, and because this pair has a glittery finish they’re more playful than creepy.
What will you be wearing for Halloween? Will you sport a touch of spook, or go for a full-out costume? x
