Stylish + Halloween aren’t normally two words you associate together. I mean if there is one time to dress-up and go a little crazy it’s October 31st.
For a costume that’s going to get worn once or twice at the most I understand that cheap and chic wins out – but after watching the heartbreaking interview in which Claudia Winkleman talked about the Halloween fire that injured her daughter it’s definitely made me think twice.
Of course, those synthetic outfits need to be kept away from fire – but it could have easily been a Christmas costume and festive candles. Miss Marnie has a really swishy witches cape that she (unhappily) wore last year so I can see how accidents can happen.
Anyway, back to the matter at hand. Stylish Halloween costumes or wear that doesn’t cost the earth yet still make the mini’s feel dressed up. I have had a search and I have to say my favourite place has to be H&M.
H&M have really upped their game when it comes to costumes – you can find so many cool outfits and accessories in there – you just need to look.
Here I’ve rounded up a few of my fave Halloween pieces that can easily be paired with black jeans or leggings and long sleeve stripe tops or even their pyjama tops.
