As October nears its final days and November creeps in, Halloween weekend provides the perfect transition between the two autumn months. For many, it's the one last time to get properly dressed up before the Christmas season kicks in, and an opportunity to have fun, attend themed events and experiment with outfits and costumes. Whether you love it or loathe it, our carefully selected Halloween edit that will help you to create the perfect look for whatever is in your social calendar.
Home movie night
Themed dinner and drinks
Autumn is called the events season for a reason, and with lives spent half indoors and half out, themed dinner parties and seasonal menus are to be expected this time of the year. Whether you've been invited to someone's house and don't want to go underdressed or tasting a new menu in a hip restaurant down town, you can never ruin the vibe with a smart-casual suit. The Enid Satin Suit Jacket is the ideal partner to everything from jeans to tapered joggers (no holding back on the canapes). Leaving little to the imagination, it has a smooth satin construction, waist-cinching belt and semi-sheer sleeves that reveal a flirtatious hint of skin. Just add a thematic headband, smokey make-up and your Halloween outfit is done.
With so many horror movies showing in the cinema around Halloween, there's no escaping the big screen. Whether you opt for one of the mainstream cinema chains or prefer to snuggle up in a quirky picture house instead, put some extra thought into your outfit by styling the Sonita Lace Jersey Sweatshirt with dark-wash jeans or leather trousers. The alluring style has a pared-back design at the front, yet upon close inspection it reveals a semi-sheer back constructed from floral lace. Add a lightweight coat and ankle boots or kitten heels in case you end up going for drinks afterwards.
Take it outdoors
The weather is visibly colder these days – it's the end of October, after all – so wrapping up in a soft coat or jacket when venturing outside the house should come naturally. If you're planning on spending the Halloween weekend outdoors – whether you're heading to a pumpkin patch with the family, helping your little sibling gather as many trick-or-treat sweets or watching the fireworks on Bonfire night – add a chic layer to your look with our faux fur silhouettes. The Buona Colour-Block Teddy Coat will wrap you up in plush softness from head to toe, while the Dallow Faux Fur Jacket is the ideal throw-on-and-go style if you're exploring the city on the weekend. Plus, both styles come in neutral-hued autumn colourways to make you blend in with the wholesome orangey background.
