Trick or Chic:

10 Ways To Celebrate Halloween in Style

Elizabeth Montgomery aka Samantha Stephens in Bewitched.



‘Tis the season for all things pumpkin spice and spooky fun—but per usual J. McLaughlin style, we like our Halloween with a haute twist. 

Below, ten ways we’re getting in the Halloween spirit with a side of chic.


1. Match Your Caramel Apple To Your Cashmere


Bundle up in a buttery soft cashmere scarf that matches your treat du jour—a fancy caramel apple dressed up in rich toffee and walnuts.


2. Skeletons, Up A Notch


For a pop of spook, a John Derian decoupage plate with a skeleton wearing what looks like a poofy tulle ball skirt.


3. Give Your Pumpkin A Pop of Animal Print


Wild thing, your pumpkin wants an animal print twist too.




4. Channel Your Inner Hocus Pocus


Wear an all-black outfit for a look that’s equal parts sophisticated and Sanderson sister. 




5. Blast Nina Simone’s, “I Put A Spell On You”


Better yet, make it your ringtone. We’re listening on repeat. 


6. Have Your Pumpkin Patch Cake, And Eat It Too


Four layers of pumpkin spice cake, vanilla cream cheese frosting, and buttercream pumpkins. Enough said. Indulge here.


7. Two Words: Spooky Socks


For him, for her.




8. Visit A Glamorous Haunted House or Hotel


We love Architectural Digest’s roundup of the most beautiful haunted houses and hotels in the world. Pictured here, Colorado’s The Stanley Hotel which is rumored to be the inspiration for The Shining.


9. Carve Pumpkins In A Matching Crewneck


Wear your pumpkin spice on your sleeve while jack o’lanterning.

10. Watch Something By Hitchcock with Candy Corn Popcorn
