Tricks and Treats: Scary Simple Ways To Spook Up Your Outfit This Halloween

It’s hard to escape the phenomena of Halloween that invades our lives during October. Every year there seems to be more and more Halloween merchandise on sale that can be used to adorn all parts of our dress, home and social life. As a nation we’ve certainly taken Halloween to our hearts and it has most definitely moved on from the modest penny chews given to the children for trick or treating some 25 years ago. Now it has become a key event in the UK’s calendar.

One good thing though if you love all the spookiness and excitement of Halloween, is that it’s not purely for the children. Many of us adults also love partaking in a spot of dressing up for some Halloween fun. But if putting on a Dracula or skeleton outfit isn’t really your thing, there are certainly some more subtle, sophisticated and stylish ways of showing your appreciation for this devilish festival.

1. Skulls

A classic symbol of mortality black or clear crystal encrusted cufflinks with matching lapel pins are a frightfully tasteful way of getting in the spirit of Halloween. Shockingly stylish they are sure to raise a few deads – sorry heads!

2. Spider
And you can’t beat a creepy crawly for rousing a reaction. Dead classy and detailed this polished metal, spider lapel pin will certainly add some bite to your jacket.

3. Crow Skull

For a slightly more sinister look you may prefer the crow skull. The black onyx engraving adds a feeling of depth and mystery to give your outfit an eerie air of darkness.

So if you fancy creating a devilish look this Halloween why not treat yourself to some ghoulish goodies.
