Dressing up on Halloween isn’t dead: it’s undead. Sure, it’s stressful picking a costume that’s not too Georgia-as-an-olive in Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging or, inversely, looks like you’ve just whacked on some Poundland horns (because you have). But there’s nothing more freeing than dressing to the max in something sexily spooky and legitimately creepy.
We’ll leave the costumes to you and your Nan’s sewing kit, though. Instead, we’ve decided to serve up an edit featuring the latest Halloween inspired releases that you can wear all round. The main lesson? Frankenstein’s monster is really, really in right now.
THE HUNDREDS FRANKENSTEIN TEE
LA streetwear cool-kids The Hundreds got Tristan Easton to design this, inspired by the murals at Universal Studios. It’s a bold slice of retro-future, to be paired with black and orange trackies and a toothy grin. Just remember for when your English Lit pals ask – Frankenstein’s the scientist, not the monster.
NICCE FRANKENSTEIN TIE DYE TEE
Finger-lickin’ good, this. NICCE have teamed up with graphic studio Night Watch to make a whole collection themed around fast food and iconic horror imagery. In this pick, our boy Frank’s monster is back at it again, this time gorging on a bargain bucket among a tie-dye explosion. A mix of summery sunshine and halloween horror, it’s one for all seasons, and fried chicken seasonings.

PALACE SPOOKED HOODY
No surprised face emojis from us that this bad boy has already sold out. After all, British skate brand PALACE command a diabolically feverish cult-like following. Adorned with a grim reaper and the iconic triangular logo, it’s a lit throw-on piece for those frosty winter nights.
£???, Keep an eye out on Wavey Garms, Depop and the like and you might just be lucky.
BERSHKA FRANKENSTEIN SWEATSHIRT
I hope Dr. Victor’s cashing in on his monstrous creation, because it’s clearly in right now. Here’s Zara sister company Bershka getting involved, and to be frank(enstein), we’re a big fan of this. Spell-out sleeves always get us drooling blood in excitement, and it’s like Chiller font never went out of fashion.
SAINT LAURENT SKELETON PRINT KNIT
Sure, Halloween is all about getting spooky: but it can be comfy, too. This high grade knit from luxury brand Saint Laurent is exactly that, enveloping your chilly skeleton like a toasty, warm hug. Wear this to your next X-Ray for mad props and a bone-rattling laugh.
