High Fashion Halloween

It’s the spookiest time of the year. The days are beginning to get shorter, the leaves are changing colour, and stores are promoting all of their Halloween goodies. I for one, am looking forward to this year’s Halloween. It has always been one of my favourite holidays because it’s an opportunity to dress up, and as anyone in fashion knows, we all love a reason to get dressed up. The past few years I haven’t went all out for Halloween but I blame that on my coming of age. This year, I vow to up the anti in the costume department. With a sea of costumes floating around in stores and online, I decided to do something different. With the Spring/Summer 2015 showings having just ended, a plethora of new collections have been introduced. I made it my mission to hunt down some high fashion looks from the collections that could double as Halloween costumes.

  1. Longhorn will definitely steal the show because it is simple and yet unusually different and scary. If you put this costume under strobe and neon lights with some scary zombie dance moves you’ll have a memorable halloween experience. At the same time it’ll be too funny to go trick ‘r treating with this costume.
    Happy Halloween!


    1. It’s funny you pick the longhorn out of them all because that was the first look I saw that inspired me to make this post. Thanks for your comment! xo
