Halloween (Not So) Fancy Dress

Tuesday, October 22, 2013


Hello lovelies, 

It's that time of year again, ghosts, ghouls and all things spooky surround us, it's almost Halloween. Halloween is becoming very popular here in the UK and now each year more and more people are hosting Halloween parties, but not everyone likes to dress up in a full on costume, so I have found some Halloween fashion alternatives to regular fancy dress costumes.  If you have been invited to a Halloween party and don't want to dress up but still want to feel part of the party and keep up with the festivities, here's some super spooky idea's for you, and what's even better, you don't have to shop around as it's all from ASOS.


1. Sequin Cat Mask £8.00 Available here. Ideal if you want to wear a plain black dress our trousers and a top and just add a mask. Or make an easy Halloween costume by wearing all black, making a tail and drawing whiskers and a black nose on with some black eyeliner, simples.

2. Touch Screen Cat Mittens £12.00 available here. How cute that they're on string, it takes me back to when my girls were small, great idea that they're touch screen, you can keep up with your emails whilst you trick or treat and you won't lose them.

3. 80 Denier Glow In The Dark Skull Tights £8.00 available here. How amazing that these tights are glow in the dark? Love them.

4. Pumpkin Beanie £12.00 available here. Very cute and not just for Halloween, makes a lovely hat for any cold Autumnal/Fall day.

5. Book Clutch with Treat slogan £28.00 available here. This fab bag looks like a book, it's a great accessory for any Halloween party.

6. Pumpkin Across The Body Bag £18.00 available here. Such a gorgeous bag for Halloween, I do think this could be rocked at any time during Autumn/Fall though as it's so cute, little girls would love this too.

7. New Look Skeleton Peace Sign Snood £5.50 (sale price) available here. Again something that can be worn at any time and not just for Halloween, this lovely snood has skeleton and peace sign designs and is from the New Look range at ASOS.

8. Skeleton Feet Socks £3.00 available here. Ideal if you want a little something to feel in the spirit of Halloween without being dressed up at all.

9. Flower and Pearl Cat Ears £12.00 available here. Transform yourself into a real glamour puss, pardon the pun, with these gorgeous gold cat ears complete with flower and pearl detailing, purrfect.

10. Bat Clutch Bag £18.00 available here. How amazing is this clutch? With it's cute little bat wings and lovely quilting detail it's a definite must have bag for Halloween.

11. Printed Glow In The Dark Skeleton Gloves £10.00 available here. I love that these are glow in the dark, perfect for trick or treating on a dark night or any Halloween party.

12. Bat Sequin Mask £8.00 available here. A change to the cat mask, and again can be worn to turn a plain black outfit into a fancy dress outfit.


1. ASOS Curve T Shirt With Trick Or Treat £14 available here. I love this, it's a great way to be part of the party without dressing up totally.

2. Dress In Trick or Treat Print £25.00 available here. This lovely dress makes an ideal Halloween dress for any party and would be lovely and comfortable as it's soft jersey fabric with a relaxed fit.

3. ASOS Curve T Shirt with Skeleton Face £16.00 available here. Again a great way to dress up without 'dressing up'.

4. Dress With Skeleton Print £22.00 available here. Fabulous for any Halloween party and comfortable too.

5. New Look Ghost Jumper £22.99 available here. This gorgeous ghost jumper is from the New Look section of ASOS and is so cute, it's also bobble resistant, nobody wants a bobbly ghost after all. Also available in plus size here.

6. Tank with Skeleton Hands print £16.00 available here.  This funky top and can be worn at other times too, it's not just for Halloween.

7. Skeleton Jumper £30.00 available here. This is a great jumper for Halloween, pair it with jeans or leggings and you're good to go.

8. ASOS Petite Skeleton Leggings £20.00 available here. These leggings are fabulous and brilliant for Halloween, wear them with a plain black top or the Skeleton Jumper for a full on skeleton look.

9. T Shirt with Ghouls Print £16.00 available here. I Love this and think it would look great with jeans or leggings.

10. Cheap Monday Skull T Shirt £20.00 available here. This fab t shirt from the brand Cheap Monday is also available in black.

11. ASOS Petite Vest With Sequin Bat Detail £16.00 available here. I love this vest with the sequin detailing on, it glams up Halloween and would look great with the Bat mask from the accessories section above.

12. T Shirt With Trick or Treat Print £14.00 available here. This is the same t shirt as number 1 but from the regular line at ASOS, I think it's great how ASOS have the same clothes in their plus size range as their regular range, and this t shirt is brilliant for any Halloween party.

So they're my picks for Halloween accessories and fashion items that you can wear for a Halloween party or just if you want to get into the spirit of things, but don't want to wear full on fancy dress. Fancy Dress outfits can be very expensive but by wearing a simple accessory or fashion item you can fit in at any party without spending an absolute fortune.

Are you going to a Halloween party? Will you be dressing up? Do you like any of the items I've shown today? Let me know in the comments :)
