Dem Bones…



I’ve got a bone to pick…literally. Why does everyone only consider scary masks, playful playboy bunnies and oversized princess dresses for Halloween costumes? Let’s all go high fashion this Halloween.

Fashion’s biggest designer names like Maison Martin Margiela (top left) and Alexander McQueen (top right)prove that Halloween doesn’t always equal ghosts and ghouls as they get inspiration from the scariest day of the year. If you’re still pondering what to dress up as for tonight’s party…ponder no more. Nothing says festive like skeleton bones, not to mention the fashion industry totally understands showing a little ribcage. Happy Howling!
