Halloween With Style: Vampire;

Halloween With Style: Vampire

Happy Halloween everyone! Have you all got a costume sorted out? If not, then maybe this Halloween with style post can help give you some last minute inspiration.

As you can probably tell, this post is all about vampires! This is such a simple 'costume' to put together, just keep everything a little sexy and sultry, mix black and dark red and you're ready to go.

I started with this gorgeous red silk dress, as the pattern really reminds me of some ancient vampire. I then added some sexy dark red and gold heels to match and a gold lace look bracelet and some earrings that are very royal looking, but can represent blood drops.

Add a fancy cross necklace (we all know crucifixes have no effect on vampires haha) and this cute vampire clutch bag. For make up I kept everything dark and sexy, just a little bit of black eye shadow, dark red lips, some full fake lashes and a dash of mascara to keep everything over the top.

Perfect! Now you have a great vampire costume, whilst still being stylish. Have a great Halloween everyone!

Halloween With Style: Witch;

Halloween With Style: Witch

Next up in this Halloween with style series is the witch! Definitely one of the most important 'characters' that revolves around Halloween. 

To achieve this look, I found this absolutely gorgeous lace sleeve maxi dress and paired it with some lace up heels. I feel this really gives off the feel of a witch, it has a real vintage look but I've tried to keep it with a little modern style. Add a lace clutch bag to complete the look.

I chose two 'supernatural' accessories for this look including a evil eye necklace and a pair of pentagram earrings. This outfit is very much about standing out with style, but still keeping the witch costume idea in mind. 

For make up I chose to use a black eye liner for the top lid, but use a silver eye on the bottom lash line to keep things mystical. The nail varnish I used just reminds me of everything Halloween so it was a definite must have, and to top off this look I added a pair of spider web design paper eyelashes which will just look amazing.

There you have the perfect witch outfit, but with style! Great for Halloween!

Halloween With Style: Ghost;

Halloween With Style: Ghost

Next up in my Halloween with style series is a ghost! Now obviously, a stereotypical ghost outfit is a sheet, with eye holes cut out, placed over your head, but who wants to look around looking like that?

For my stylish ghost outfit, I chose a loose, flowy, vintage look dress and I wanted to go with an old fashion look.  I added plain white heels, vintage look rings, a long layered necklace and a lace clutch. For this outfit my main focus point was pale colours, vintage style and loose layers, which is why I chose the long necklace.

For the make up I would keep it extremely pale, simple and innocent looking. Opt for a grey nail polish, (you're meant to be dead after all, right?) use a white eyeliner and grey eyeshadow for pale looking eyes, and keep it innocent with a thin layer of black mascara to make your eyes pop.

VoilĂ , a stylish ghost outfit perfect for a party! With this outfit I have use some expensive items as I was looking for the perfect vintage look, but of course, keep your eye open in charity shops/ thrift shops and you're bound to find something that's perfect, and cheap!

Halloween With Style: Skeleton;

Halloween With Style: Skeleton

Next up in my Halloween series is the skeleton! Now with this outfit you can just have fun, mix black and white together with a few skeleton accessories as you'll definitely have the look.

I paired x-ray leggings with a ripper jumper and some bone heels for added drama. I then added skeleton earrings, skeleton hand ring and a printed clutch. I chose to keep the nails and make up black and white to keep in ties with the costume.

Now, of course, if this is a little too over the top, or a little too many bones for your liking then you can simply mix and match a few of the key pieces.

How To Style PVC: A Full Outfit For Under £130;

PVC is a huge up-and-coming trend for Fall, so I thought I'd jump in quickly and share how I would style PVC into a full outfit, for under £130.

Now I chose a larger number so that I could include some good quality pieces that will last for seasons to come, but you can, of course, dress this trend for much less!

How To Style PVC;

I started off with PVC trousers, as I wanted this look to be quite bold, but also something you could wear everyday. So I added a cropped navy jumper to add a little difference in texture and colour, plus added these gorgeous chunky ankle boots.

I wanted to keep the outfit fairly simple as PVC can be a little too much sometimes.. So the only accessories I added was an over the shoulder bag, a long necklace and this cross beanie to keep it looking a little grungy.

Another Halloween post will be up tomorrow, so if you liked the first one, make sure you come back tomorrow!

Halloween With Style: Pumpkin;

Halloween With Style: Pumpkin

Now that it's October, and the Halloween countdown has begun, I thought I would do a few costume ideas, but with style. If you're one of those people who love to five right in and get all dressed up, then I'd recommend to go for it! However, maybe you're the kind of person, who wants to get involved with the Halloween festivities, but doesn't really like wearing costumes.

If so then my Halloween with style series is for you! Pair orange shorts (for the classic pumpkin look) with a white crop top and boots so it's not too over the top, then add a dark green clutch to bring down the bright colours. The pumpkin beanie inspired this look, and it's such a cute accessory.

I added a green lead necklace, orange nail polish and a dash of green eye liner, to carry on the pumpkin look, but still being stylish and subtle. To finish off the look keep eye shadow and lips neutral and add an adorable pair of pumpkin earrings.

Now you're ready to rock the Halloween season with style! Follow my blog to keep up to date for more Halloween posts coming your way!
