For some, Halloween is an occasion to gorge on endless amounts of sugar and toilet paper the neighbour’s house, but if you are of the more sophisticated trick-or-treater type, how about indulging in some stylish Halloween chic eye candy instead? To set the mood, start by decorating your place with the most gorgeous pumpkin(s). My jaw dropped when I saw the black and gold one above created by the always inspiring Athena Calderone of lifestyle blog Eye Swoon. She created that masterpiece last year and for this upcoming Halloween she doesn’t disappoint with the Pumpkin Perfect beauties below.

The day of, as the sun goes down and your fashionably frightening evening begins, why not sip on a Halloween themed cocktail like Coco & Kelly’s Swamp Spice Flip or one of Martha Stewart’s Spooky Halloween Spirits?
Of course, you shouldn’t totally skip out on sweets but instead of going for the usual mini Mars bars or Tootsie Rolls, you can create your own creepy treats like the super cool marshmallow bones below from once again, the queen of Halloween chic, Martha Stewart.
Now, we can’t talk Halloween without having a little fun with costumes. Even if I’m not going out dressed up, one of my favourite things to do this time of year is scour the interwebs to see what celebs are wearing at their lavish Halloween pow wows. LOULOU Magazine always does great Hollywood does Halloween galleries. How adorable are Ashley Madekwe and Iddo Goldberg as Choupette and Karl Lagerfeld?
So how are you spending Halloween this year? Are you going all out with eerie decorations everywhere, a crazy cool costume and some fun parties? Or are you just going to chill at home and watch a scary movie while pretending not to hide behind that pillow? Not that I ever do that. Actually, I totally do. No matter what you decide to go for, I hope you have a blast and don’t forget to stay chic as you trick-or-treat!
