As I mentioned in my Spooktacular (sorry!) post a few weeks ago, dressing up for Halloween can be a bit of a minefield. This year, however, I was determined to give the ocassion a subtle little nod- and set about trying to put together a suitably spooky yet still work appropriate look. Reaching for a few old purchases, my take on Halloween chic was quite casual- incorporating one of my most savvy purchases to date:
Tee-Christopher Kane (via Matches)
Ear Cuff- via Etsy
This Frankenstein's monster tee by Christopher Kane was a steal which I snapped up from the Matches sale at the end of the summer. Although this is the first time it's appeared in an outfit post, I've worn it quite religiously since I bought it as it's so versatile- great for teaming with boyfriend jeans for a more casual feel or with a structured jacket for a formal edge. The Frankenstein's monster motif is a real departure for me, but perfect for when I feel like embracing a tougher look- and it also seemed like a really appropriate sartorial choice for Halloween. Here I paired it with a staple pair of jeans from Whistles, my ultra-comfortable skater shoes from Gap and a spooky slick of Rimmel red lipstick. I also channeled my not so secret Game of Thrones nerd through accessorising with this dragon ear cuff which I found on Etsy- well if you can't take style inspiration from House Targaryen at Halloween then when can you?
