12 Scary (& Fashionable) Halloween Trends


Who said Halloween fashion had to be creepy or tacky? From geek chic to (fashionably!) scary, these picks are sure to add more than booos from your friends, family, and neighborhood trick-or-treaters.

What’s the perfect combination? A hint of Beetlejuice and a whole lot of retro and grunge. Mix these items into your closet to add an effortless Halloween charm to your October wardrobe.

Headed to the office? Try pairing a retro Halloween skirt with an all-black top or sporting a high-collared, bone-print dress.

Looking for something subtle? Pair a black cardigan or dress with the poison apple brooch, Ahhh! Real Monsters pin set, or an Alien Chestbuster pin! The perfect amount of scare without “overdoing it” — if that is even a thing.

    I LOVE black and white stripes for fall. They are the perfect subtle nod to Tim Burton! That Pikachu tee is adorable too. πŸ˜€

      I agree! And then…. you might as well just keep the stripes around for the rest of the year. πŸ™‚
