Halloween Style

Let’s be honest, Halloween isn’t the most, um, stylish holiday. Think about it – orange and black isn’t exactly a fashionable color combination, and when are you ever going to wear that witch’s hat again? We know the spooky costumes and crazy hair and makeup are half the fun, but we’d like to add some style to the celebrations as well! We put together a collection of some of our favorite Halloween decorations, treats, and costume ideas to show off our classy, fashionable Halloween Style!CLASSY DECORATIONS

If you’re not up for pumpkin carving this year (we don’t blame you for wanting to avoid the mess), try one of these alternative ways to decorate with pumpkins. We love these creative options that range from paint, to glitter, to glass!

  • Glitter Pumpkins

Do we even need to explain how amazing these glitter pumpkins are? Didn’t think so. We love the gold chevron pattern over the pink painted pumpkin!

  • Glass Pumpkins

Classy glass pumpkins are a great decoration for your home throughout the entire fall season!

  • Modern Halloween Table

The introduction of the chevron and brocade patterns make this Halloween place-setting stylish and modern.

  • Gilded Pumpkin Display

If you want to go all out with your fall decor, try a display of gilded, decorated pumpkins like this one!

HALLOWEEN STYLE

When it comes to classy costumes, we’ve turned to a few of our style icons for inspiration. The best thing about these costumes? The pieces we put together will remain staples in your wardrobe long after Halloween. Come November 1, you can tone down these looks for everyday wear and mix and match the pieces with other items in your closet.

Audrey Hepburn

As the epitome of style and class, Audrey Hepburn was the first thought that came to mind for a classy Halloween look. Diane von Furstenberg makes a perfect Audrey-esque little black dress in a classic cut. Add black pumps, red lipstick, and cat-eye shades to complete the look.

Kate Middleton

Thanks to the duchess’s affinity for Issa London, her look is not hard to replicate. With this blue Issa wrap dress, black blazer, and fun British head piece, you’ll be a spitting image of Kate Middleton herself!

Equestrian Style

The equestrian look is my personal favorite, having been an avid horseback rider for years. Is it just me, or did Ralph Lauren have this Halloween costume in mind when designing these equestrian-style leggings, boots, and hat?

Flapper Girl

Now for the most sparkly, flashy look of the bunch – the classic flapper girl. If you want to go Gatsby this Halloween, make sure to pile on the sequins, pearls, and feathers. And if your style is daring, this dress will double as a cocktail ensemble that’s sure to turn some heads!
