Halloween is one of my absolute favourite times of the year and I really enjoy the inspired fashion. I love how everyone really gets into the party spirit with costumes and themed events, bobbing for apples, carving pumpkins and going overboard with my makeup in ways I would not be able to get away with at other times of the year, in addition to fun themed cozy jumpers and shoes. I love the creeping in of the dark nights, the changing colour of the leaves and how the 31st October can genuinely feel like a spooky evening.
This year we will be in NYC for Halloween which I am so excited about, as in the USA the celebration is just bigger with decorations everywhere and trick or treaters on every corner. There is an amazing Halloween parade in the East Village we will be checking out, as well as a dogs parade (yup!) the weekend before. I can't wait to see everyone in costume!

I have been starting to think of my costume, doing some research online and have a few ideas so I will get cracking on it soon. I love fancy dress and always put a big effort into my costume. It is just such a laugh and so much fun to be someone else for a few hours. In the past for Halloween I have dressed as a pirate, a troll, a Mexican Day of the Dead person, a sheep, a minion and Edward Scissor Hands (my best costume so far I think). The opportunities are endless, but as our first time in NYC I want this year to be extra special.
So in celebration of the season, here is my Halloween fashion edit 2015. I always love putting these together.
Ghost clutch handbag (Luna on the Moon); Dancing Skeleton tights (ASOS); Pumpkin Mask (ASOS); Spooky flats (Topshop).
ASOS has a great selection and so much choice as always, but Topshop and New Look also have a few themed options. There are also so many independent designers with great pieces on Etsy, like the cute bat collar clips above, a subtle yet fun way to wear the themed trends.
Queens of fun jewellery Tatty Devine have this stunning AARRGHHHHH necklace which I am so in love with. It's bold and eyecatching and would look amazing with a simple dress or over a shirt. I am also such a big fan of Luna and the Moon and so a Halloween fashion edit would not be complete one of their stunning bags. I have a particular fondness for this week ghostie. How cute is he?
Aarrghhhhh necklace (Tatty Devine); Ophelia floral crown headband (Rock n Rose); Ghostbusters Tshirt (New Look); Cobweb flats (ASOS); Dancing Skeletons dress (ASOS); Wise Wolf tshirt (AngelPixieLove); Spider phone case (ASOS); Glitter Skull Clip (Crown and Glory)
ASOS have a good choice of jumpers to cozy up in with the weather getting colder, like this lovely and simple Boo piece, or how about a beautiful gothic flower crown from Rock n Rose. Spooky!
There are just so many cute styles that it's really hard not to get into the Halloween spirit! Now to get back to planning my costume...
Are you excited for Halloween? Are you heading out to celebrate? Will you be wearing any Halloween inspired fashion this year?
