Halloween With New Look - Scary Vs Chic!

Monday 24 October 2016

Halloween is just around the corner, so it was with wicked glee that we accepted the New Look Halloween Scary vs Chic challenge. NL have put together a fab collection of everyday pieces that can be whipped up into a Halloween look that you can break down and rewear after the big day, saving you spending out on a 'costume' you'll only wear once a year - genius. Check out this video on their blog for more Halloween ideas and for tips on styling bits up into Harley Quinn, Black Swan and Scream Queens looks amongst others. It's SO good, we were really surprised to see which pieces had been used!

Anyhoo, back to Scary vs Chic. I took Scary, being au fait with an eyeliner and partial to pvc, and picked out the Black Basic Witches Short Sleeve T-shirt (£7.99) and the Black Patent A-Line Skirt (£19.99), to channel my favourite witches from The Craft and American Horror Story - Coven! A lot of eyeshadow and Posh Spice/Wanda Maximoff finger wiggling later, and we have a pretty decent Halloween party look! It would also look really cute with a white shirt under the tee and some over the knee socks and heels, if you really wanted to go full Neve Campbell post superspell makeover. 

Outfit : Tee and Skirt - c/o New Look, Boots - Dr Martens.

Wowza, doesn't J look amazing!? So of course, I opted for Chic! I've never been one to dress up for Halloween, so I like that New Look are suggesting style lovers create an outfit using pieces which can be reworked and worn again and again! I love velvet for A/W and as the shape of this Black Velvet Swing Dress (£19.99) is hella flattering, it's an obvious choice for me.

I wanted to create a bit of a costume, so styled it with this Black Fright Night Ticket Coin Purse (£3.99) and Black Halloween Lace Mask (£4.99). To make the whole look a bit more interesting, I decided to throw in a pirate element (which totally makes sense) - these lace up boots from Ted & Muffy. Ahoooooooy!

I know I'm going to get a lot of wear out of this dress throughout the colder months and now I'm really tempted to buy it in burgundy... I just wish it came in green and royal blue too! As it's such a versatile dress, it also looks cute with thick tights - making it perfect for everyday wear.

So what are your plans for Halloween? Are you Team Scary or Team Chic!? - J & T.
