October is here, and one of our favorite holidays to dress up is right around the corner, Halloween! Halloween is a time to dress up however, and as whatever, you want - from a princess to a devil. And, one of our favorite ways to dress up for the spooky holiday is with little black dresses! LBDs are super versatile, so, just like with any other event, you can dress up or down the look any way you like. Grab a LBD for Halloween, and turn it into a super classic and classy look, like a witch, vampire, or black cat with simple accessories. Check out some of our favorite little black dresses for Halloween below, and why we think they're perfect for a Halloween look.
Halloween is so close, and we're getting excited to dress up as our favorite characters on the 31st! It's always difficult to choose and put together your costume, but there's one great way to look super chic for Halloween: little black dresses!
Little black dresses are so versatile, and always chic, so we love the idea of pairing an LBD with your favorite Halloween accessories for a glamorously ghoulish look. Two dresses that we particularly love are shown above: Night Moves style 6658 and Jeweled Pencil Dress style 78415.
We love Night Moves 6685 to rock a sexy glam rock vampire look. Sexy and sophisticated, this dress features a sheer illusion sleeve detail accented with crystals. The long sleeves makes it perfect for a cold fall Halloween night, and allows it to easily transition into winter for a Holiday Party dress (we especially love this look for New Year's Eve)! For Halloween, just pair it with vampire teeth, dark red lipstick, dark red or purple eyes, and glamorous red jewelry. We also love the idea of pairing it with a leather jacket to complete that glam rock look.
In the above outfit, we paired the LBD with Helen's Heart style JE-4601-10 red earrings, Rihanna by Night Moves platform high heels, and Magid E7496 beads and rhinestones satin box clutch. All items that you can easily rock again for Homecoming, Prom, or the Holidays!
Jeweled Pencil Dress style 78415 is perfect to rock a witch look for Halloween! This jeweled neck dress features body defining style lines, open sides, and an invisible back zipper. For Halloween, pair it with a chic witch hat, a witch's broom, and funky jewelry. for an extra witchy look, pair it with striped stockings - we love either orange and black or purple and black striped stockings for that classic witch look.
To finish off this look, we paired the dress with Magid E7486 jeweled box clutch, Hyacinth Crystal Chandelier Earrings JF103E32G3, and Baylee by Sizzle sexy beaded pumps.
Of course, a little black dress is so easy to dress up in any way, so whether a classic Halloween look like a vampire or a witch that we showed above...or something a little less scary like a 1920s flapper girl or cute black cat...you'll be able to rock a totally haute Halloween look, and then take that dress right into the Holidays and New Year!

Halloween is tomorrow, so if you have not put your costume together yet, time is officially almost out! But, that doesn't mean it's too late. There's plenty of last minute ideas you can put together to show your Halloween spirit. Below are fabulously easy ways you can dress up a dress (we recommend a little black dress) for a perfect night of Trick or Treat fun.
1. Spooky Tights
There's no better way to add a unique flavor to your dress than to pair it with funky tights. Whether for Halloween or the Holidays, tights are always fun accessories. For Halloween, we're loving the skeleton, spider web, and haunted house we've been seeing all over Pinterest!
Haunted House Halloween tights like these will really have you looking like a fan of the Holiday! It's as easy as pairing it with a black shirt or LBD and black heels or boots for a look that will have you being in the Halloween spirit without having to go all-out with a costume.
These skeleton tights are perfect for pairing with an LBD and a skeleton mask or Dia de Los Muertos makeup!
These spider web tights are so chic! Pair it with an LBD and a witch's hat and high heels for a totally classy Halloween look.
Look at your local Halloween store, Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, or H&M for creepy Halloween tights like these.
2. Animal Ears
Pairing animal ears with an LBD is always a dependable way to go. Rather than picking up a pair at your local Halloween store, if you have the time, make them yourself! A wire headband, felt, and studs will have you on your way to some purrrfect cat ears (or bunny...or bear ears) to rock!

Makeup is a girl's best friend, right? Well, it certainly couldn't be any more true on Halloween. Makeup will bring your whole look together, and there's plenty of costume ideas you can put together on makeup alone! One of the big trends this Halloween season is Dia de los Muertos skulls. All you have to do is get some black, white, yellow, and red paint and make your face into a colorful and flowery skull! Below are some of our favorite ideas when it comes to painting your face into a skull.
This is such a chic Halloween look, so don't be afraid to show off your creative skills if you decide to go with this costume idea! Dulce Candy's Sugar Skull/Dia de los Muertos Tutorial + DIY is a great video to watch if you want to try this look; check out her video below. It can just be time consuming to apply all of the makeup, so make sure to leave plenty of time for this one. And, just make sure to clean your face at the end of the night so the makeup isn't sitting on your skin for any longer than it needs to.
Of course, if you plan on being a vampire for Halloween, don't forget to watch our Vampire Halloween DIY Makeup Tutorial! What do you plan on being for Halloween? Leave us a comment below and share your ideas!
Halloween is only two weeks away, so if you haven't started putting your costume together yet, it is definitely time. Two costumes that are always classic and dependable choices are a witch and vampire!

You'll have such a classy costume, and a dress that you can wear time and time again! So check out two of our favorite little black dresses below to get a classy witch or vampire look.
Dave & Johnny style 8580 is a stunning beaded tulle dress that has such a unique look to it. The beautiful beaded detailing makes it such a classy choice, while the sheer fabric around the bodice and back gives it a sexy look. It's a perfect choice for Prom and Homecoming, but you can also get another use out of it on Halloween!
