Aside from the ever-changing Halloween costume trends, a number of ensembles have endured as classic fright fest outfits. From cute cats to Frankenstein’s bride, here are six iconic fancy dress ideas to get you inspired this October.
Make the traditional cat modern with velvet touches this season; teaming a form-fitting black bodysuit with a skater skirt. Finish with a pair of ears or a glittery mask to finish the look.
When it comes to those vintage vampire vibes, look to Lily Munster for your inspiration. Ditch a traditional black dress in favour of a purple velvet wrap piece and accessorise with a ribbon choker and buckle heels for a decadent nod.
When it comes to your devil costume, keep it sultry with a strappy bodycon dress, with bright red matching heels, completing the look with a pair of red horns.
Your traditional witch needn’t have a green nose and carry a broomstick… amp up the occult look with a chiffon sleeve LBD, and pair with lace detail heels. Complete with a cross-adorned choker and add a witch’s hat for good measure.
BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN
The cult figure from the 1935 movie, the Bride of Frankenstein is synonymous with her white dress and shock of grey hair. Steal her look with a monochrome maxi dress, pairing with a spooky coin purse and lace embellished choker.
Add a subtle play on vampiric elements with a bat costume, keeping your black dress gothic in order to pair it with a lace mask and glittering heels for a feminine finish.
