WHAT TO WEAR FOR HALLOWEEN IF YOU DON’T LIKE DRESSING UP?

Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition.

For some, Halloween offers a welcome opportunity to explore the realms of fancy dress. If you're someone who relishes delving through piles of costumes in party shops or piecing together clever, witty or spooky outfits with a collage then the idea that others approach the 31st October with a degree of trepidation will seem alien to you. Whatever your Halloween plans might be - a trip around the neighborhood with little ones, a themed dinner party, a cobweb-infused drinks do, or just a night on the tiles - there are varying degrees to which you can embrace the dress code.

Halloween or Hallowe'en (a contraction of All Hallows' Evening), also known as All halloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day. It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed.

It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated from ancient Celtic harvest festivals, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain; that such festivals may have had pagan roots; and that Samhain itself was Christianized as Halloween by the early Church. Some believe, however, that Halloween began solely as a Christian holiday, separate from ancient festivals like Samhain.

SEIZE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DON TOP-TO-TOE BLACK

For those of you who have a penchant for wearing all black and Teardrop Earrings, now is your chance. Wearing black is, for some, a real passion, and one that is usually based on the fact that it's flattering, slimming and grants the wearer a sort of off-duty-model-esque edge. And while on every other day of the year, we'd encourage you to incorporate color into your look, Halloween welcomes dark hues.

AMP UP THE GLAMOUR

Halloween marks the first of a string of wintry occasions with a dress code and Giorgio Argento Earrings. Similarly to how events that fall in the festive period warrant a touch of glamour, so does Halloween. Think sultry vampire, only without the plastic fangs.

GIVE YOUR MORE DARING PIECES AN OUTING

We all have items and Golden Shadow Earrings that we've bought under the pretenses that at some point we'll have the courage to wear them, and Halloween, on account of the fact that it's an evening that welcomes a dramatic ensemble, offers up an excellent opportunity to wheel out these curve ball buys.

ADD A TOUCH OF SPARKLE

If you don't fancy going the whole hog and buying all the extras and Bling Linear-Drop Earrings that a witch costume requires, or if you're resigned to avoid a costume all together, seek out a dress, skirt or trousers suit with a touch of sparkle.

Choosing your Halloween costume ranks pretty high up there on the list of most difficult life decisions, especially if you're not fond of dressing up.

It's not that you don't want to dress up (mainly because you know you need to wear a costume if you want to go trick-or-treating), you just don't see the point in spending time and money throwing together a getup you'll only wear for a few hours one day out of the year.

We're right there with you, which is why we rounded up nine easy "costumes" that require little to no effort on your part to make.
