Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice: Curating A Halloween Season Wardrobe in 5 Steps

4th Sep 2019

Fall is more than just fall. It's Halloween season! If you love the spooky months best of all, then you need to snag cute Halloween outfits that celebrate September skies and cool October evenings. Getting into the Halloween spirit doesn't have to involve wearing a costume. You just have to dress your best. Think sweaters, slacks, the perfect pair of jeans, and colors that put you in mind of falling leaves and bewitching witches. You can put together cute fall outfits for women with just a few can't-miss pieces.

Sweater Weather, Autumn Style

The best part of fall is collecting cute Halloween outfits that show off your style the entire season. There's no need to wear a costume to celebrate your love of autumn weather and spooky themes, especially not when you can shop a selection as sensational as ours. Stock up on sweaters first. They wage war against nippy temperatures in the fiercest way possible. You can't beat pieces that are both fashionable and functional, either.

Look for  sweaters in fall-friendly colors and patterns. Autumn often inspires the masses to go absolutely mad for plaid patterns, so feel free to check that off your fall fashion checklist. The warm brown tones of animal print fit in with the backdrop of falling leaves. Red, butter yellow, and warm orange can round out your wardrobe. You don't have to limit yourself to pullover sweaters, either. Cardigans are always on-trend in the fall. Snag sweaters that are as cozy as a hug and as soft as a dream.

Back in Black

Cute fall outfits for women don't have to be all black, but it doesn't hurt. Is there a better time to dress in black from head to toe? It's the spookiest season of the year! Even if you don't want to cloak yourself in darkness, refresh your wardrobe with black basics that are made for autumn. Naturally, black sweaters are on-point, but we also have black  duster cardigans, black jeans, and long black skirts with a witchy vibe. With those items in your closet, you can put together an outfit in seconds because everything goes with black.

A Vintage Fall Aesthetic

Back in the day, cute Halloween outfits consisted of jumpers with tights, plaid skirts with chunky shoes, and  sweater dresses with leggings. In a throwback to yesteryear, you can rule the Halloween season like a queen of the '90s. Nostalgia is always one of the hottest trends. Thankfully, retro-inspired autumn outfits are sweeter than all the candy you could trick-or-treat in five lifetimes.

Say “Boo” for Bottoms

You have to be smart about the bottoms when you shop for cute fall outfits for women. Fall is a tricky season. It's not uncommon for the temperatures to remain a bit warm in the daytime, but once the sun goes down, a crisp chill touches the air.  Mini skirts, short jumpers, and even long sleeve rompers are still A-okay, but you need to invest in a collection of tights, knee-high socks, and pantyhose. Your legs will thank you. Invest in long pants, too. Jeans are a given, but embrace seasonal styles, too, such as soft, sumptuous suede pants or paper bag waist trousers.

Footwear for Fall

Your cute Halloween outfits won't achieve the maximum effect unless you have fall-ready footwear, too. Mary Janes are must-haves for those throwback ensembles, and you should definitely have a sporty pair of  sneakers, but the season is all about boots. From ankle boots to knee-high boots and everything in between, you can wear boots with every piece of fall clothing in your closet. Grab a pair of chic booties, some chunky hiking boots, and maybe even some rain boots just for fun.

Curate all the cute Halloween outfits that you need for the season. Make sure you have ensembles for daytime, nighttime, mornings at the office, and nights out with your friends. {a} haley boutique has a fall-forward selection that's so stylish, it's almost spooky!
