Given that we’re in the throws of Paris Fashion Week at the moment, and New York and London’s editions are recently behind us, it’s easy to understand why you may have forgotten that Halloween is less than month away. Yes, really. As the calendar’s most campy, theatrical 'holiday', it’s no wonder that this is a favourite occasion for fashion lovers to pull out all the stops in terms of creativity.
For many of us though, the scariest part of Halloween is trying to come up with a costume that is original, fashionable and Instagram-worthy enough to leave the house in. Well, that and the Nov. 1st hangovers. Add the fact that you may be going with your significant other and you really have to get on your coordination game. Don Draper can hardly be seen walking into the party with murdered Victoria Beckham -- what would the photos look like? Terrifying, doubtlessly.
From in-poor-taste options like Caitlyn Jenner to more acceptable fare like… well, just about anyone else in the Kardashian family, Halloween costumes also serve as a thermometer of pop culture -- measuring what’s been hot in the past year and what’s to come in the next.
