Halloween is going to be a little different this year for most of us, but that doesn’t mean you have to dump the festivities totally. You can still get dressed up or inject a little Halloween festive frivolity into your outfit to mark the occasion.

With that in mind, we’ve found some great Halloween inspired outfits and accessories, some plus size specific and some just awesome that you can use to conjure up your inner Halloween spirit.

Lots of the accessories can be worn with items you already own too, so if you’re on a bit of a budget this Halloween… and let’s face it, right now, who isn’t? Then some of these add-ons might be the perfect dress up option for yo.

So here are the seven spooky and sparkly pieces that we would suggest for a great plus size Halloween costume.

Shrine Halloween Skull Face Jewellery at ASOS, £5

This look is quite a statement. We love a bit of bling, so these face jewels in a skull formation are perfect for those who want to skip the fake blood and keep more of a party look. There are loads of great online tutorials for skull make up and a soft smokey eyed version of that would look fantastic with these face jewels. You can then use a mix of monochrome and silver tones in the rest of your outfit and let the face jewellery do the talking.

It’s a classic now but the skeleton print t-shirt dress is back. This is an obvious choice but a great one. It’s low key which certainly fits with the tone of this years celebrations and can also be worn during the day of Halloween for a fun, getting into the spirit but altogether easy and practical outfit. Team with black tights and boots.
