HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Get the kids costume-ready for one of the most fun nights of the year

When you’re a kid, Halloween is the absolute highlight of autumn. The pumpkin painting and carving, decorating the house – then heading out into the dark after dinner, dressed up in costumes ready for trick or treating (AKA bucketloads of sweets). This year we’ve got an awesome selection of costumes, from cute-as-anything pumpkins and spiders (perfect for toddlers) to super-scary werewolves and witches. My total favourites, though, are this Harry Potter outfit and Day of the Dead dress. Both look good, are easy to pile warm layers underneath to keep cosy, and work brilliantly for year-round fancy dress too.
