Halloween is on the horizon…here at Joanie HQ, we’ve decided that we’re fed up of forking out for a whole new outfit every 31st October then never wearing it again, so…this year we want to make the most of items we love and will wear again!
Gals, this is a win-win situation… just think, you get to wear the dress for your friend’s birthday at 5 then just scary-it-up for trick and treating at 8! Fang-ulous, right???
The first look we are going to create is for you gals out there who like to do a more glamorous take on Halloween. We suggest you try a Glitzy Witch this year! Style a sparkling dress like our Green Sparky midi dress with some fierce fishnets, chunky boots and that little witch hat that comes out of the decoration cupboard every year (broom optional!). Then instead of doing a dark contour, try and glam it up even more by getting lots and lots of glitter involved!!! Glitter is a much prettier and more unique alternative to thick and sticky Black face paint that usually doesn’t budge for another 4 days.
Fancy getting your fangs into another DIY Halloween look? Look no further than a vampy velvet ensemble…a way to embody Dracula’s bride! Our Harley Dress in blood curdling Cabernet velvet is a sophisticated and sultry way to get that vampire look. Simply drench your pout in a dark burgundy or black lipstick, compliment with a strong contour and some statement silver chains and chunky rings…throw in some fangs for good measure!
MIA PULP FICTION
Master Mia’s timelessly cool bad gal look! Put a twist on the original style by swapping the black trousers for our Soho Leather-Look Dress…pair with a white blouse, collar open and flicked up. For extra edge, wear with some patent black thigh high boots, great for a good dance off!!!
Want to do the classic cat costume but don’t want to look like every other gal at the party? Well try creating a fiercer feline feel, wearing our Selina Leopard Print Bodysuit! This bodysuit is much sassier than just a plain all black catsuit, rock the Selina with our Chelsea Skirt in Black…fabulous leopard and faux leather are the purr-fect combo!!! For a slightly different take on this fur-ocious look rock our Black Selina Bodysuit underneath our Alice Leopard Print Pinafore Dress. For an even dressier kitty look, why not try our lush Loretta dress? With some cat ears and whiskers this look is super easy to achieve.
