Get Your Halloween Costume From Zara This Year
Zara have released a duo of collections to serve all your potential spooky season needs.
The tragedy of last-minute Halloween costume shopping has befallen us all before, and it always seems that the stores are full of exactly what you don't need. You've been invited to a glamorous party? Shop windows and websites filled with polyester tutus and makeup packets of fake blood. You're going trick or treating? Where the hell am I gonna get some angel wings and face glitter at this hour!? Enter: Zara, the Spanish brand who have elevated their position from a reliably stylish store into a label that sprawls into cosmetics and clothing for pets. This year, they have taken their reach one step further and released a set of collections ready to fulfil anything the eerie date of October 31st might require of you.
The first mini-collection, titled 'Game', is a subset of the wider TRF branch and consists of 6 constructed costumes: The Robot, The Galactic, The Butterfly, The Dragon, The Alien and The Spider. Despite their obvious intended purpose as playful ensembles, the outfits are largely wearable day to day due their Y2K reminiscent stylings. It's a matter of time before you see these pieces all over your FYP on TikTok.
The second collection, titled 'Moon Lit' is a larger offering of entirely black items that serve to amplify the energy of the traditional LBD into something both spooky and sophisticated. Supplying co-ords in satin, faux leather leggings, suits in velvet, the affordable collection is comprehensive in injecting variety into a mono-toned selection, as well as including a choice of accessories featuring bedazzled spiders, bringing a much more literal definition to the term 'costume jewelry'. It's fun to see a global brand like Zara produce something filled with such novelty and delight, and can only hope this will serve to inspire other brands to follow suit in the future and potentially promise a consistent roll-out of this nature from Zara every Fall.
This special Halloween collection is available both in store and on the website.
