6 Halloween Accessories to Make Your Outfit Pop!

One of our favorite experiences in our stores is helping people put together full outfits rather than just costumes! While a costume is great the accessories are often what makes it stand out from the crowd. Today we’re featuring 6 of our favorite basic accessories that can make your costume into something special – or even be used to make a costume by themselves! To find out more about each item, just click on the picture.

Black Layer Tulle Petticoat

A petticoat can be used both for extra warmth and to give the skirt of your costume a more dramatic shape! Many of our costumes feature skirts this length so this petticoat is the perfect accessory to finish your outfit with. Don’t feel like you have to match your petticoat to your outfit either! A contrasting color that shows occasionally can have a big impact on the final look.

Off The Shoulder Black Knit Top

If you don’t want to buy a full costume then you’ll want some building blocks that can be used to create an outfit from pieces you already have in  your closet. This black knit top makes a great base for many looks and can add some warmth under lighter layers. This look works for all kinds of literary, historical, and fantasy character costumes!

Sometimes you get invited to a last minute party and need to dress up your favorite reliable little black dress for Halloween. This witch hat is the perfect adorable accent piece that goes with basically anything so you won’t be unprepared this season.

If you’re wearing a vintage inspired or flapper costume then this wig is for you! It’s an easy way to get that authentic 1920’s look that adds that extra finishing touch for your outfit.
