The Liberty Halloween Starter Pack

The Liberty Halloween Starter Pack

Don’t let Halloween pass you by for yet another year; prep well ahead with a little inspiration, courtesy of Liberty’s latest Starter Pack.

By: Sophie Beresiner

Every year I either vow to get ahead and organised with my Halloween plan or I plan to avoid it altogether. And every year I’m swept up in the increasing swell of popularity, but it hits me too late. Gah! No costume! Or themed dinner party or plastic pumpkin to collect sweets in, or any kind of plan whatsoever. So whilst I shall probably fail myself again this year, I’d like to take the time to furnish you with the correct prep, so you can do better than me. Welcome to the Liberty Halloween Starter Pack. Whatever you do, don't...fall...asleep.

Harry Styles

Kenneth Jay Lane Rhodium-Plated Freshwater Pearl Choker Necklace, £35

Since that Harley Quinn phenomenon, Halloween has annointed an annual cult hero. The costume of the year, based on popular culture, and we are registering our predictions here. In the perfect balance of zeitgeist plus achievability, No. 1 has to be Harry’s House. Harry Styles hysteria has swept the nation, and who even are you at your halloween party if you’re not sporting a feather boa? (so easy). May we recommend upping the ante with Sleeper feathered cuffs, smiley face nail decals, a string of Kenneth Jay Lane Rhodium-Plated Freshwater Pearls, £35 and some flares. Or a full sequinned jumpsuit perhaps. Be more Harry.

Thriller Finds

Kirstie Le Marque 9ct Gold-Plated Diamond Black Enamel Chunky Star Pendant Necklace

I need little excuse or encouragement to invest in something super special. The way I see it, saving any spare wages for jewellery makes basic sense, because it is the ultimate multi tasker. This can be costume jewellery in its most literal form on 31st October, but then just a beautiful piece, like the Kirstie Le Marque 9ct Gold-Plated Diamond Black Enamel Chunky Star Pendant Necklace, £385 you can wear forever after that. Easy justification, right?

The Ready To Wear

Celine Cat Eye Acetate Sunglasses, £290

If you are more inclined to lean into the easiest possible option, you need a single item that will transform your entire look into party-ready. Or trick-or-treat ready. Or answer-the-door-to-kids ready (to compensate for your negligent lack of sweet treats). The novelty Christmas glasses thing has extended to Halloween, and there are some legitimately stylish options available this year in the Liberty Christmas Store. Sparkly pumpkin glasses (trust me). A better cost-per-wear option? Go cat eye in Celine Cat Eye Acetate Sunglasses, £290, or a black knit sheer top.

Hair Raising Heroes

Hair by Sam McKnight Lazy Girl Dry Shampoo 250ml

Literally. I’d hazard that four out of five costumes will benefit from some kind of hair structure, and I’d recommend avoiding seriously extreme hold, because fear of the next morning (and it being a work day) is a horror show in itself. You can work wonders with a clever combination of Hair by Sam McKnight Lazy Girl Dry Shampoo 250ml £19, flexi hairspray and some smart accessories, and in theory should brush out before bed. You’ll need a good brush too. And a little hair rehab for your morning wash.

House of Horrors

Emma Bridgewater Halloween Cobwebs Half-Pint Mug, £22

Our passion for spooky endeavours has evolved from cos-play to chic interiors. If you’re beyond trick or treating, but want to celebrate an occasion like any other, you’ll likely throw a dinner party or some kind of social event. Nod to the festivities with a collection of ‘heirloom’ pumpkins (not the official term, but like those fancy tomatoes) as a centrepiece. Opt for dark charger plates or placemats, some black candles and mystic baubles (not just reserved for Christmas, but great then too), and an increasingly popular themed crockery set. Emma Bridgewater has you covered this year with the Halloween Cobwebs Half-Pint Mug, £22. Total collectors items.
