Grown-up goth: 12 dark and mysterious pieces to wear for Halloween

Grown-up goth: 12 dark and mysterious pieces to wear for Halloween

Celebrate Halloween in style


Your usual Halloween plans may have to be postponed for a year, but that doesn’t mean that your at-home celebrations can’t be truly special. Dressing up, at any age, is one of the best parts of Halloween, and if this year, you had planned for a grown-up glamour vibe, you can still celebrate in style.

The high street have answered our Halloween prayers this season with grown-up gothic chic – sumptuous lace in a palette of dark and dreamy colours; accentuated silhouettes, with nipped-in waists and exaggerated shoulders, a lá Morticia Addams; and plenty of luxurious velvet. Winter is just around the corner, and if this is what we’ll be wearing, we can’t wait.

Grab the movies, the treats and the candles – these grown-up Halloween pieces are all you need for a glamourous night to remember.
