Nail the Halloween look for less

The countdown to Halloween is on. Saturday is the big night and whether you’ve agreed to go to a fancy girls dress party or just want to look the part when taking the kids out guising, time is running out to find a fab and fashionable outfit.

With this in mind, we’ve teamed up with Livingston Designer Outlet for advice on how to nail the Halloween look for less. Forget ghoul and green we’re going slick and stylish in statement pieces that you can have in your wardrobe for years.

The witch
This is a must-have at any Halloween event and one of the easiest styles to master. Forget the wart nose and go witchy glam in lace this year. It’s the season for all black everything. Team pointed stilettos, a pair of extra-long lashes and a sparkly witches’ hat with your favourite LBD and you’re good to go. For make-up, go for smoky eyes and nude lips.

The cat
For a sultry ensemble, you can’t go wrong with the cat. Take advantage of the chillier weather for this feline look and wrap up in skin-tight leggings and a flattering polo neck – meow! Take your cat costume from basic to beautiful with must-have make-up and accessories: these knee high boots are not only bang on trend but will finish off the look in style. Don’t forget the cat ears and your black eyeliner for feline flicks and cute-as-a-button whiskers.

Halloween isn’t always about black, of course. Unleash your wild side and look gorgeous in shades of red. For this look don’t be afraid to go extravagant. We love this stand-out dress from Phase Eight and Dorothy-esque shoes from Kurt Geiger - they’ll both come in handy for the Christmas season too. Finish off the look with devilish accessories and slick make-up – minimum black liner and deep red lips.
