With curfews, Tiers and social bubbles, the events of 2020 are perhaps more frightening than Halloween could ever be. However, that doesn’t mean we’re simply allowing spooky season to go by without a thought, so, just for this year, let’s leave the costumes behind, and instead celebrate the BrandAlley way – in style.
Haunted House or Spa? You Decide.
If you’re one for decorating the home every October, whilst the parties may be cancelled, you can still make your pad look the part with a handy bit of DIY. However, if you’re not so crafty, why not take the opportunity to invest in some Wonderfully Wicked Homeware? Think creepy candles from Parks London and Skandinavisk, as well as duvet covers and throws (ideal for hiding behind whilst watching scary movies).
More into chills than thrills? That’s OK. We’ve catered for pampering too this year. Consider skincare from everyone’s favourite, Elemis, as well as soothing products from Aromatherapy Associates. You don’t have to stop there – go for the jugular with a scalp detox from Grow Gorgeous. We’re feeling more relaxed already…
Do Halloween Costumes Your Way.
Dressing up is something we all do a little differently. Some of us haven’t done it since childhood, others revisited it at university (where sexiness prevailed over scariness), and then there’s the die-hard dress up fans, who take any opportunity to be someone else for an evening.
This year, we propose a costume that all of us can adapt to. We challenge you to become a more stylish version of you. Scarily exciting, right? We’ve made it simple with a curated edit of autumn-appropriate designer clothing, from cosy knitwear to killer accessories. And, because we want to be Halloween appropriate, of course, it all comes in black, red and orange. Which, coincidentally are our favourite colours.
Not-so Creepy Feet…
Whether you’re staying in or going out this Halloween, it’s time to treat your feet. If you’re celebrating from home – it’s time for a break from the slippers, you’ve got all winter to snuggle up in them. Step out in chunky boots, sparkling pumps and show-stopping stilettos from All Saints, Ugg and Vivienne Westwood for Melissa. So go on, let your feet do the talking – the right pair of shoes could even be used for attacking monsters if you decide to partake in a scary experience (normal social distancing rules apply).
Spellbinding Style for Men
Don’t worry, gents, we didn’t forget about you. Whether you’re a Gomez Addams or Freddy Kreuger type, we’ve got your Halloween-inspired look sorted. Keep it monochrome with black and white tops, knits and outerwear from Gianni Feraud and Scott & Scott London.
If you want to spice up your outfit, consider the stylish-yet-scary accessories we have on offer. With skull charms on bracelets, chunky necklaces and bracelets from Stephen Oliver you’ll be screaming with excitement – not fear -this October 31st.
