Join us as we show you how to dress for your upcoming Halloween parties… sans costume.
Yes, yes, we’re sure you have at least one party where you’ll be rocking a sexy witch or vampire costume, but what about those events where you need just a touch of Halloween spirit — like a work-related soiree? No matter the affair, these black and orange items will keep you looking festive, hot and maybe just a tad mysterious on Oct. 31.
Tangerine was the color of the season last spring, and good news — it still is! There’s nothing more stylish and more bold than arriving at a party in an orange frock. Believe us, all attention will be on you — especially if you opt for a form fitting, bodycon number.
Our pick: Topshop Bodycon Cut Out Back Tunic, $45
Looking for the perfect bag for your upcoming party? Try a classic black clutch, with just a hint of orange detailing. While this style of course works perfectly for the holiday, the subtle color accent allows the clutch to really work perfectly for any occasion — whether you’re wearing a little black dress for a work cocktail party or a flowy gown for a wedding.
Our pick: Boticca Pleated Clutch, $158
There’s nothing sexier than a pair of super high black pumps — especially if you rock a pair that has a little extra detailing, like this platform with soft pony hair. Slip into these for your Halloween bash, and you will easily be the belle (or witch) of the ball.
Our pick: N.Y.L.A. Candel Pump, $100
You can’t attend a Halloween party without a touch of horror. Scull-accented jewelry is the easiest way to achieve this look in the most fashion-forward way. Try a skull-encrusted bracelet or a charm necklace with a little sparkle to dazzle the other guests.
Our pick: Chan Luu Sterling Silver Necklace, $215
Do you have a last-minute party, with no time to prepare an outfit? Run to your nearest drugstore, pick up black and orange nail polish and give yourself a quick manicure! Nothing screams festive more than colorful nails for the season. We love the idea of alternating your nails black and orange for a full-on Halloween look.
Our pick: butter LONDON ‘3 Free’ Nail Lacquer in Union Jack Black and Jaffa, $14 each
