Orange and black

Happy Halloween everyone!! Since, the spooky season is upon us, and you all know how I love to get festive, I couldn't resist doing another Halloween inspired post. Last week we talked about skulls, and this week I'm talking about the classic Halloween colors, orange and black!

I always love dressing up festive for Halloween day when I'm just running around town and at work.  Working in the staple colors of Halloween and adding some black nail polish is a great way to join in the fun without having a crazy costume.

I've centered my Halloween outfits with a central piece in mind; an orange cropped sweater. I've picked this piece because of the two 2012 trends that it fits, cropped and orange. Orange was 2012's color of the year, and the cropped cut was this year's go-to hemline.

Crop tops are best worn with either something underneath, like this gingham button up, or paired over something high waisted like this high slit maxi skirt. Add touches of leopard for an extra pattern, and a great pair of heels for the perfect festive look!
