Go Gothic Chic for Halloween
Halloween is the perfect time to let your style go wild, whether you’re going for full costume-party horror, a tongue-in-cheek character costume or simply a spooked-out fashion look. This is a time when you can really experiment with your hair & beauty looks, too, instantly elevating your outfit with ease. Here’s some of our favourite ideas for Halloween, whatever your take.
The twenties look made a big impact on fashion this Summer, with subtle influences taken from the Great Gatsby era found across the red carpets. But going full-on flapper can be a really chic and fun Halloween look, that’s instantly cool and recognisable. Pair your fringe dress and feather hair accessory with a Marcel Wave like Leigh Lezark’s. Whether your hair is short or fixed into a faux bob, incorporating a finger-wave into the fringe gives an unmistakeable 20s twist.
If all-out fancy dress isn’t for you, but you don’t want to seem out of the spirit of things, go low-key by combining a glamorous look with some gorey details like Gwen Stefani. She looks super chic, but still in step with the Halloween theme.
If you’re not going fancy dress, but want to inject some spooky beauty into your night out look, take cues from The Saturdays. The combination of dark, smokey eyes with bold purple-tinted lips gives an instant after-dark feel. Go all out with a fashion-forward hair look that will take this look to the next level with some slicked-back hair like this how-to video
So whether you’re going spooky, funny or just giving your look a sultry revamp, be bold for the one night of the year when you can get away with almost anything!
