As someone who obsesses over the fall season, I must admit that one of the major reasons is the fashion that comes along with it. The excitement of attending your favorite seasonal festivities only intensifies when you have the perfect oatmeal sweater, knitted beanie, and suede boot combo. October is ripe with opportunities to sport the latest clothing trends, but also gives you the chance to re-shape your identity — whether that be in a more spooky, glam, or comedic way. You are the creative director on Halloween night.
With so many costume possibilities, it can be overwhelming to navigate the web and clothing stores in search of inspiration for you or your family (furry ones included). As a helpful resource, I’ve listed some of my favorite Halloween fashion and costume blogs to help stir some creativity into your holiday brew.
“POPSUGAR delivers the biggest moments, the hottest trends, and the best tips in entertainment, fashion, beauty, fitness, and food and the ability to shop for it all in one place.”
