Glamorous Halloween Costumes - Everyday Clothing Pieces

Hello lovelies! 
With Halloween just over two weeks away I thought I'd do a playful post giving you some glamorous ideas that still will put the creeps into anyone who dares to glance your way! Instead of just giving you a few ideas for outfits that you would only wear once, I thought it would be a little more useful if I gave you a few everyday clothing items that could be thrown together to make the perfect glamour ghoul look.
I know how awkward it can be to find a costume that is scary, however still holds glamour and after all, if you're dressing up you still want to look chic! I thought it would be helpful also if I listed the shops you can get certain outfit pieces from too, as it will save some of your time trying to find them. 

For a cat I think the perfect piece is a black jumpsuit, these are available from lots of clothing stores such as ASOS and Miss Guided. After doing a little hunting the price of these are around £45.00, which I think is a little pricey however to justify paying that sum of money, a jumpsuit could be worn all year round and personally they are one of my ultimate favourite items of clothing, I think they just look gorgeous on! 

For this I think the perfect footwear would be a pair of over the knee or thigh length black boots, even better with a death defying heel! Again you would be spending quite a few pounds but these could be a good purchase for year round wear. You can find lots of different styles on the MissPap site for £30.00, so not as purse battering as first thought. 

The accessories would be what made this costume and luckily you can find these in less expensive shops such as Claire Accessories and even in the children's section in supermarket. If you're looking for something a little classier you can get many matching sets that include ears, tails and even collars for under £10 from PinkBoutique that are really pretty and glamorous!

Mortica Addams 
For an everyday Mrs Addams costume I would say either a long fitted black dress or a black dress with a mermaid skirt, you can get a modern yet haunting dress from MissGuided for £40, even though a classic Mortica would have long flowing sleeves, this would be a difficult to pull off all year round however to put your own twist on her you could wear this with a black shawl which are available at Matalan for £10. 

For shoes I invisin Mortica rocking a pair of pointed stilettos with an ankle strap, they seem pretty spooky and typical of this gothic creature. You could get a pair from Primark for £12 or these from Boohoo costing £20 that would match up with all your favourite outfits year round. The only thing you are missing now is a long dark wig (unless you're like me and have witchy hair!) a wig from EBay is £3.05. 

For the devil why not go 21st century and wow with a red two piece? I found this gorgeous blood red from MissPap for £20 and it's definitely ideal to show off your devilish side too! However unlike most devil outfits, I think it's a stunning piece for everyday wear too.

For your shoes I recommend wearing a pair of black heels that are available in lots of shops. Why not complete your Halloween outfit with the two most ghoulish colours around, red and black! Like the Mortica outfit you could wear the pointed style with the ankle strap from Primark or Boohoo.

To complete your outfit you'll need your horns, tail and pitchfork, the easiest place you can find these is Sainsbury's in a pack for only £3. However just like the cat accessories you can find the more glamorous ones at ASOS where they sell devil horns for £12!

There are so many more everyday clothing pieces you could add accessories to for the big night, however for now I'm leaving you with these three classics, hopefully one works well for all you Halloween lovers!

What outfit would you go with? Let me know in the comments 


  1. Great ideas Charlotte! I always try and incorporate items from my everyday wardrobe into costumes as well, it always works out so much cheaper! I'd definitely go for the cat costume, the Pink Boutique accessory set sounds ideal, I definitely couldn't stretch to £45, sorry ASOS! 🙊
