Kids love dressing up for Halloween but as well as traditional costumes, why not add a little spookiness to their day-to-day look too, says kidswear editor Charlotte Duck

 

Spooky prints

Halloween has become a bit of a fashion fest in recent years with designers featuring ghostly logos, bat motifs and animal faces in their catwalk collections – and the trend has filtered down to kidswear (see boy and girl, right). Spooky prints are an easy way to embrace this mood: add a bit of witchy magic with a black and silver star design, or go all-out with a skeleton or skull print.

Wild things

Scary accessories are a good option for kids who are shy about going full-on frightening. A simple pair of cat ears, a rabbit hat or an animal mask all make for a stylish nod to the Halloween season and can be easily incorporated into their day-to-day look. Those feeling a little more confident can have fun with stripy tights or some novelty-print socks.

Halloween hues

The colour traditionally associated with 31 October is, of course, black, but for a fashion-forward approach, it’s fun to mix in autumnal tones too. A splash of unexpected yellow or orange, combined with plums, browns and greys, will give their outfit a subtle Halloween feel and help them stand out in a sea of noir.
