For parents panicking about when they’ll have time to fabricate an elaborate papier-mâché pumpkin outfit in time for Halloween, there’s always the slap-dash sheet-over-the-head option. But for a more stylish quick fix, Stella McCartney is a reliable source of kids’ Halloween-themed clothing – and this season’s selection is simply adorable.
Think black sweatshirts with voluminous scallop-edged batwing sleeves (£63), pumpkin-print leggings (£48) and an – honestly quite frightening – jack-o’-lantern cotton hoodie that zips up over the face (£91). There’s also a glamorous black tulle dress with star-studded mesh sleeves and detachable sheer bat wings (£106) and pink and black tights with monsters on the knees (POA). The accessories offering includes silver and lilac star-studded biker boots (£134) and high-top trainers with yellow fluoro stripes (£153). In keeping with McCartney’s sustainable fashion ethos, the range uses organic cotton and vegetarian leather – and, best of all, can be worn well after October 31.
