How to Plan Your Halloween Look with Pepper Alley

With Halloween becoming more and more popular in the UK, we couldn't help but plan our next look for the scariest night of the year. Of course, we couldn't possibly do it all on our own; that's why we asked for the help of some very special friends. Please have a look at our celebrity-inspired, mini guide on how to pull off the best Halloween outfit ever.

1) Jessica Rabbit or Sandy?

Plan everything with attention to detail. Be simple but don't forget it's Halloween, we need to make a bit of an impact here, girls. We adore the lovely Gigi Hadid in her amazing Sandy from Grease outfit:

2) A basket bag

It all starts with the right one, doesn't it? What would Mary Poppins do without her one of a kind bag?

Ladies, trust us, you have come to the right place. We love Alessandra D'Ambrosio's little red riding hood look but could we add a little basket from our generation for a more glam effect?

Our little Clemmie in charcoal is perfect. No basket was ever more appropriate. Make sure you match it to your little red riding hood outfit this year.

3) Colour
Looking for a bit of a colour? We have what you need. Every year we can't wait to see Heidi Klum's Halloween outfit. Last year we loved her Betty Boop and how could we not? She looked awesome:

Red lips and red shoes? We are so game for this.

Have a wonderful Halloween. Make sure you share your Halloween looks with our team on our Twitter page: @pepper_alley

Top 3 Tips to Autumn-Proof your Look

Image available from Pinterest

Hello, October! We have been waiting for you for a very long time.

We can’t wait for chilled nights, romantic novels around the fireplace, fresh mornings and orange afternoons when leaves fall and everything looks just so perfect.

Of course, we wouldn’t love fashion as much as we do, if we hadn’t thought about 3 easy tricks to quickly Autumn-proof your look and embrace, possibly, the cutest season of the year.

Have a look now and  don't forget to have a wonderful autumn!

1) Hats, we see hats everywhere

Doesn’t have to be a full, winter hat and, yes, beanies could be a step too far. This doesn't mean that you can't play a bit with autumn accessories. A nice, quirky, hat could not only keep you warm on those early mornings, when not even your strong coffee works, but also be a stylish item.

Maybe taking inspiration from this sweet, autumn movie scene from a just as sweet movie:

When Harry Met Sally

2) Plum nails

Too late to find them in season but perfect for your nails, nothing says autumn like plum nails, possibly in gel because everything looks just so much better when it's shiny. Going for a full plum is the most feminine expression of autumn and on your nails, it will be a fab new addition. What a perfect way to start your October!

3) The tote bag

Because you don't know where your next autumn adventure will take you, because you don't know if you will need to do some shopping or just grab your laptop and attend that important only know that whatever you do, you will have to do it in style:

Our pink tote bag, Clemmie, is 'The' leather handbag and excels in autumn. Practical, beautiful and with soft, Italian leather, our little Clemmie is pretty much everything you need: from back to school to weekend breaks, Clemmie is highly versatile and will be a powerful ally throughout the season.
