13 Statement Pieces Perfect For Halloween Parties (And After)

Let me just put it out there: I’m not a fan of “one-time-only” outfits, which is apparently a growing phenomenon with certain folks — buying them for #OOTDs on Instagram. Not to mention, what of the negative impacts such high consumption has on our planet?

Now Halloween might be tomorrow, but that doesn’t mean whatever outfit you’ve put together can’t be reused. Here’s our guide to pieces that can be reworn after this weekend.

Tulle slingback pumps, $1,450, Dior
Going for a vintage vibe a la Marilyn Monroe in the Seven Year Itch? These popular “J’Adior” Dior slingbacks would be perfect with its hyper-feminine appeal and low heel. Leather dress, $449, Moschino [tv] H&M
One of the most highly anticipated designer collabs in recent times, Moschino’s line for fast fashion giant H&M drops in less than two weeks on November 8 – perfect for channeling some vintage Madonna. Polyester beret, $29.90, Zara
Probably what Cher Horowitz would be wearing in a 2018 version of Clueless. Patent leather pumps, Saint Laurent
Sci-fi has always and continues to be a major point of inspiration for many mediums, fashion included. These Saint Laurent pumps would suit those looking to emulate Blade Runner characters. Acetate sunglasses, $245, Bimba Y Lola
The quirky temples of these shades will get you noticed at any party. Patent leather sandals, Prada
Living it up as queen of the underworld? These Prada flame heels, an update of the original which debuted at the brand’s S/S’12 show, are the way to go. Zinc-blend earrings, $29.90, Zara
The ’80s party girl was well and alive at various S/S’19 shows, such as Marc Jacobs and Rodarte – but if poofy tutus aren’t your thing, look the part with jewellery – much like the rest of the ’80s, jewellery was typically loud and in-your-face, and that’s not always a bad thing. Shearling and leather cross-body bag, US$1,716 (S$2,375), Loewe, www.matchesfashion.com
We immediately adored these cute bunny bags when they first appeared at Loewe’s S/S’18 show and the love continues with this shearling version that’s perfect for year-end travels. Leather bustier top, US$2,640 (S$3,653), Alexander McQueen, www.net-a-porter.com
It might not look wearable on a daily basis but simply throw this bustier over say, a white prairie dress for an interesting juxtaposition. Milkmaid meets dominatrix? Why not. Alternately, wear this bustier under a formal black blazer. Leather bowling bag, Gucci
It looks like a weapon but in reality, this cute Gucci number is actually really wearable (read: it’s not heavy) and adds an interesting edge to any outfit. Tulle dress, US$2,680 (S$3,708), Simone Rocha, www.matchesfashion.com
Perfect for modern day Marie Antoinettes… Leather and velvet boots, $1,880, Chloe
… with the ideal boots to match. Acetate sunglasses, US$320 (S$442), Gentle Monster
Consider your Matrix fantasies sorted out.
