Tricks of the Halloween Trend

17th October 2014 | Posted in Womens & Occasions by H. Simpson

With Halloween around the corner, its time to get dressing for the occasion in dark, haunting colours and pointed toe footwear! Whether you're dressing up to go out on the town or simply off to a party, there are plenty of items for you to create the perfect outfit.


Halloween Made Simple

For a simple yet effective look this Halloween, opt for boots and an on trend knit. The Michael Kors Boatneck Fringe Poncho has hanging fringe detailing whilst the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania X Melissa Satyr Boots have a unique pointed feature that surround the ankle, both of which resemble a 'witch-like' effect. Pointed features on items are more of a statement as opposed to rounded edges and toes. Its a more powerful, stronger look and one that can be used perfectly for Halloween; Ted Baker have a great pointed toe range from stilettos to boots. Keeping an all black outfit is the easiest route to go down on Halloween, steering away from bright colours and keeping within the notion of 'black is best!' Just make sure you finish off the look with lashings of lippy, eyeliner and a suitable colour of nails!  For a more smarter Halloween look, opt for an LBD with classic black clutch and heels.

Black Outerwear Style Choices

In terms of jackets, have a great range depending on the look you are going for. Ted Baker's Nevia is great for a long, warm winter coat, complete with a tie belted waist and a sensible midi length with a vibrant Opulent Bloom printed lining.
A more casual look can be created with a leather look jacket. This would be perfectly suited to an outfit consisting of black skinny jeans and boots. The cut of the French Connection Pixie Pu Jacket creates a flattering fit at the waist, with help from the small peplum style bottom.
A jacket choice that is more fashion conscious than the rest is the Maison Scotch Fluffy Check Jacket. This oversized jacket provides a 'just thrown on' look and is ultra soft and cosy. The monochrome check print is a great choice for this season and breaks up a block of colour nicely. For similar oversized jackets see the Classic Tailored Jacket in rose pink and French Connection's Alexandra Collarless Jacket in white. To accompany this style, ensure you are not without a designer handbag from none other than Michael Kors.

Incorporating Halloween Notions

If you do wish to add some form of colour to the look, incorporate a key Halloween trend within this. The Superdry Ladder Crew Knit is a great look to work with. Giving off a battered, authentic look without the need of doing anything yourself, wear with a vest top underneath or brave it without!
Adding something very decadent and demure in terms of accessories can really sex up the outfit. The Ted Baker gloves and scarves have this season been designed with faux fur detailing. This is something that will once again be a huge trend this winter so take note! The Smol Faux Fur Leather Gloves in this deep red are very devilish indeed! Match with the Tesha Faux Fur Scarf and your outfit instantly becomes something else!
Ted Baker's latest floral print of choice this season is the Opulent Bloom. This has been adorned over the likes of clothing, phone accessories, purses and interior linings and has meant that the print has become recognisable and a distinct look of Ted Baker. The Opulent Bloom works well for the upcoming Halloween season due to its mystical, botanical garden appearance. Add this pop of print to the outfit with the Orla clutch bag featured below, Saeber High Heeled Shoe or even the Ayef Skinny Scarf
