Praise whoever it is, you believe in that it’s no longer a requirement to dress our little girls in pink and our little boys in blue. Gender-dressing has thankfully died (albeit after a very slow and politically painful death), and we’re welcoming a new society where it’s okay – brilliant, in fact – if little boys prefer Barbies over toy trucks.
The walls of the fashion markets are proving difficult to knock down, but slowly retail behemoths like Zara?are introducing unisex clothing for both adults and children, and more independent labels like Tootsa , Polarn O Pyret, and?loveIt?are emerging who believe that children should be free from unnecessary social constructs. Halloween can sometimes be a nightmare for parents and their children – particularly if you’re trying to avoid cliched gender-defining costumes like princes and princesses. With that in mind, we’ve gathered our favourite (and ghoulishly adorable) unisex Halloween?costumes for your little ones:

Unisex black ghost top by LoveIt at €29.14
